Splash launches new campaign to drive awareness towards sustainable fashion


October 23, 2019 | By RetailME Bureau

Home-grown, high street fashion retailer Splash, part of the Landmark Group, has launched a sustainability campaign, The Aquarium of Truth. The campaign seeks to promote awareness of conserving the ocean and strengthen the adoption of sustainable business practices in the fashion industry.

Advocating for the green fashion movement and delivering a strong message of life beyond plastic, the new campaign by Splash showcases the reality of the ocean. Additionally, Splash is stepping up its sustainability initiatives for 2020 and plans to produce 80% of its products using sustainable and ethically sourced materials.

Aquariums have always been known to replicate what one would find at the bottom of the ocean. From coral reefs, to sunken ships with treasure to hidden caves, they always paint a beautiful picture of what the ocean must look like. Unfortunately, due to rising levels of pollution and uncontrolled dumping, the blue sea has turned into toxic catastrophe.

It was with this premise that Splash created ‘The Aquarium of Truth’, a gigantic fish tank featuring plastic bottles, bags, soda bottles, straws and disposable cups to portray a true picture of what one would find at the bottom of the ocean. The aquarium pop-up is being displayed at the Splash store in Oasis Mall in Dubai.

Highlighting the company’s environmentally conscious ethos, Splash’s latest campaign aims to show and change the attitude of fashion retailers and consumers as they become increasingly aware of how overuse of plastic is negatively impacting the planet and contributing to differing forms of environmental pollution, including water pollution.

“As one of the region’s leading fashion brands, Splash wants to encourage consumers to pursue a living without plastic and consciously incorporate alternatives into their everyday lives for a better future. Plastic represents a new environmental and health threat and our latest campaign focuses on representing the devasting effect of plastic on the ocean and starting a movement against single-use plastic,” said Raza Beig, director – Landmark Group and CEO of Splash.

“We have advanced our sustainability initiatives and reiterated our existing goals to deliver fashion by producing 80% of our products using sustainable and ethically sourced materials. Our design teams are contributing to the goals by spending more time researching and sourcing sustainable fabrics and manufacturing methods. With the adoption of sustainable solutions and new technology, the brand will significantly decrease its carbon footprint,” he added.

Splash uses recycled polyester, produced from discarded plastic bottles that further leads to less plastic ending up in the ocean. Splash also makes clothes with eco-friendly fabrics such as tencel, 100% organic cotton and lenzing viscose, across several of its fashion lines which is now 70% sustainable.
