Bobtopus the Octopus is one of the smartest critters in the sea. He understands that it isn’t just one person or animal that makes a difference – it requires everyone working together. Like Bobtopus, these socks are out to prove there is a better way, as they are sourced from recycled plastic bottles but look and feel just like any leading sock brand.

A whale of a sock for the largest creature in the ocean. Bubbles the Whale wants to reduce the amount of plastics in the oceans that he mistakes for food and accidentally eats, making him unhealthy and unhappy. By wearing these socks you'll be preventing plastic from ending up in Bubbles' stomach and helping make a cleaner tomorrow.
The number of years a single plastic bottle lasts in the marine environment, but even then, will never truly degrade! Over time, plastic will slowly break down into microscopic pieces that can harm marine life who mistake them for food.
Every day, around 8 million pieces of plastic pollution will end up in our oceans. Annually, 1 million seabirds and 100,000 marine mammals and turtles are killed by plastic pollution.
There may be more than 5 trillion tiny bits of plastic known as macro and microplastics floating in the open ocean, weighing up to 269,000 tonnes.
Our mission is to prevent plastic bottles from ever making it to the ocean. We’re diverting plastic bottles before they have a chance to make it to a landfill or a waterway and using them to create colorful socks for kids.
At Socktopus Ink, we stand to do our part in creating a better tomorrow. It’s our goal to educate and empower parents and children to make better, more earth-friendly choices.
