Most vacationers don’t take a trip to the Bahamas to “harvest beach plastic,” but jewelry designer Barbara de Vries headed for the dreamy locale with that very intention. Her version of buried treasure now graces a limited series of organic-cotton Loomstate T-shirts—750 in all—which she’s painstakingly adorned with washed-up plastic detritus: laundry-basket bits, lobster traps, nature tags from birds and sea life, and toy soldiers. Now available exclusively at Barneys CO-OP stores across the country, these conversation-cum-conservation pieces are a striking way to raise awareness about our polluted oceans. A percentage of proceeds benefits a sustainability outreach group on Eleuthera.
