BUILDING BLOCKS FOR A BETTER FUTURE
When GNGR Bees came to life, we knew it wasn’t going to be an easy journey. There was much to be redefined in how fashion (and other products) are produced and consumed and simply manufacturing our products better than others was not good enough
In this journey, we have discovered endless possibilities and met incredible people whose passions and values align with ours and so, partnerships have become an essential part of the work we do. Recognising that we, alone, are not able to change the world, and that it takes everyone, together, to do so is how we create and achieve more.
For most - a foundation is a way to “off set” unsustainable practices they may carry through their companies or to buy social credit and look better in the eyes of the public. At GNGR Bees, the empowerment and support we give to the world and all around us is entrenched in the very essence of what we do. Everything is created for a purpose and is dedicated to empower projects, causes and communities.

CLEAN WATER PROJECT
CREATED BY GNGR BEES
The clean water project is a partnership between GNGR Bees and Nara Guichon - a Brazilian artisan that resides in the Island of Florianopolis, Santa Catarina. Nara has devoted her life to reduce waste in the ecosystem and part of this mission includes caring for waste that ends up in the oceans. Together, we have created the Nexit bag - a sports bag made from 100% rescued fishing nets just for you.
It is estimated that by 2050 we will have more plastic in the sea than fish, and although its common knowledge single-use plastic bottles, plastic bags and packaging make a big percentage of this waste, nothing is compared to fishing nets, which alone account for 50% of waste in our oceans.
Other than killing marine life and disrupting and killing corals, fishing nets also shed micro plastics, which affect even the smallest beings in our oceans and then in turn, us, humans who eat seafood.
This is an issue far beyond measure which is extremely worrying for the future of both humans and animals - an issue that needs to be tackled hands on. .
In partnership, we rescued these nets with the help of fishermen from the coast of Brazil and processed them so they were clean and safe to wear. They were then designed to be comfortable, durable and handmade into the perfect size bags you see today using fishing nets only and tested to endure weight so you can carry whatever you want!
