Ocean Refresh’s desire to make a change and the philosophy by which they work is a great example to us all.
Ocean Refresh is extremely excited to announce the partnership with one of France’s brightest young stars, professional golfer, Clement Sordet.
Ocean Refresh being a sustainable and eco-friendly brand was looking for a sportsman that shared the same beliefs to represent them on a global scale.
Clement, being consciously aware of his impact on the environment and sticking to a meat-free diet, provided the perfect partnership for both parties.
Ocean Refresh is a young and thriving brand founded back in only 2019 by Bernardo Pedroso.
The brand is extremely ambitious and has strong goals to help our environment by removing and recycling plastic waste.
Everyday approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find its way into our oceans. Ocean Refresh work with factories to utilize plastic waste that is found on our beaches and in our oceans to produce their collection of recycled plastic flip-flops, sliders and accessories.
Clement, who came close to winning his first European Tour tournament at the Oman Open in 2019 is set to take on the British Masters sponsored by Sky Sports this week. Clement will be sporting the Ocean Refresh logo to his right chest throughout the tournament along with representing the brand and its message globally.
Clement and his team at ISM are dedicated to supporting the message behind Ocean Refresh; to make changes to help the environment and the sustainability of our eco-system. ISM has recently announced a partnership with another sustainable company, OCEAN TEE who manufacture a range of golf products using sustainable materials and environmentally friendly processes.
Clement Sordet said: “I am really excited to link-up with Ocean Refresh, a company with a cause that is very close to my heart. Ocean Refresh’s desire to make a change and the philosophy by which they work is a great example to us all. I can’t wait to get back out on the course and carry the Ocean Refresh logo and help their message!”
CEO Ocean Refresh, Bernardo Pedroso said: “Clement Sordet is the perfect ambassador for Ocean Refresh not only being an extremely talented and up and coming sportsman but also he supports the message of sustainability and consciously helping the environment. Today sportsmen play a big part in influencing society and becoming role models for the next generation. With the support of Clement and ISM I believe our message will be heard amongst the golfing world.”
ISM CEO Chubby Chandler said: “When I first went out on tour 40 years ago, sustainability was probably the last thing on anyone’s mind. Golf is a completely different sport now and I’m delighted to see companies like Ocean Refresh having a desire to work within golf. Clement, like many of our clients, is rightfully conscious about the impact we all make on the planet. I’m so proud of his engagement and Clement’s passion to drive awareness, support positive change and reduce the impact we all have on the planet.”
