Waterlust and Coral Morphologic have teamed up to bring us this super rad ‘Cosmic Coral’ zoanthid print legging made from recycled post-consumer plastic bottles. The Cosmic Coral leggings feature a Coral Morphologic zoanthid print and are now available to purchase from the Waterlust online shop.
While these leggings will probably look best on the ladies in your life that shouldn’t stop you from buying a pair as a gift! 10% of profits from each purchase will go to Coral Morphologic, to help support their efforts to research and document Miami’s imperiled coral reefs.
The Cosmic Coral leggings are 86% RPET (recycled polyester), 14% lycra, giving 10 post-consumer plastic bottles a positive future. Additionally, they are printed using dye-sublimation, an environmentally friendly process which uses no water and minimizes waste.
Cosmic Coral leggings use a Sorbtek fiber technology for quick dry, moisture wicking and breathability, and come with a 50+ Ultraviolet Protection Factor which means you can wear them diving or snorkeling and you don’t need to use sunscreen on your legs.
Coming soon you will also be able to get a Coral Morphologic printed sun mask which you can see as a teaser in the video below, and in the coming soon section of the Waterlust website.
Coral Morphologic is a Miami-based hybrid art/science endeavor. Their art and research aim to celebrate and visualize this connection between Miami and its origins, and in doing so, better understand the future of corals in their ever-changing habitat.
Coral reefs contain the most diverse ecosystems on our planet. They provide vital shelter for marine organisms and help protect our coastlines from damaging effects of coastal storms and waves. Through photography and film, Coral Morphologic captures the beauty of Earth’s most fluorescent forms of life in hopes of inspiring future generations to study, preserve, and restore our world’s underwater cities.
