For WORLD OCEANS DAY (8th June 2021) Denman want to take the time to celebrate the beauty and wonder of the ocean and everything it does for us.
“With every drop of water you drink, every breath you take, you’re connected to the sea.” — Sylvia Earle
Our oceans cover more than 70 per cent of the Earth’s surface and it is thought that between 70 and 80 per cent of the oxygen we breathe is produced by marine plants, nearly all of which are marine algae. It absorbs 50 times more carbon dioxide than our atmosphere and is responsible for regulating the climate by transporting the heat from the equator to the poles, and cold water from the poles to the tropics.
The ocean provides more than just seafood, which equates to 15.7% of the animal protein consumed globally. Humans have also traditionally used algae, seaweed and sea plants for preparing sushi etc.
Many medicinal products come from the ocean, including ingredients that help fight cancer, arthritis, Alzheimer's disease, and heart disease. The ocean is therapeutic. When we see, feel, hear, smell or taste water we are happy and at peace.
It provides millions of jobs and contributes several trillion pounds of goods and services to global economy annually. Plus it provides us with so much pleasure. From fishing to boating and kayaking to whale watching, the ocean provides us with many unique activities.
We are passionate about protecting our oceans and have in recent years eliminated all single use plastics from our product packaging. The new Denman product packaging is now 100% sustainable and recyclable. We are also taking a proactive and leading role in reducing waste and lessening the environmental impact of our production and products.
As part of World Oceans Day, we have created this stunning aquatic design for the Denman D90L Tangle Tamer Ultra to honour these vital oceanic lifelines. With the promotion of this specially designed hairbrush, we want to help create awareness of the need to protect our oceans and its sea life and encourage sustainable use of marine resources.
This limited edition, web exclusive brush is powerful like the ocean and is great for removing tough knots and tangles from long, thick hair - perfect after a long, summer’s day at the beach, enjoying our beautiful ocean. Expertly designed, super-strength nylon bristles allow the brush to glide through wet or dry hair whilst reducing catch and drag. With its air-cushioned pad, the D90L also gently responds to the contours of the head making it gentle on the scalp. Did you know the Tangle Tamer Ultra is the perfect hairbrush for use on wigs and hair extensions?
Only recently, scientists have come to understand the devastating impact and continued threat of human activities. Overfishing, climate change, pollution, habitat destruction, invasive species, and other forms of human exploitation have put our oceans at risk. Together, let’s care for our ocean as it cares for us, cut down our carbon footprint and be sure to leave nothing behind but our footprints in the sand <3
