If ever there was a collaboration deeply rooted in the ethos of each brand and their respective connections to nature, sustainability and conservation, it would be the Mount Gay x Sea Bags Ocean Currents Collection. Newly launched, alongside actor and environmentalist Adrian Grenier,  the collection features two products: the Tote and the Beverage Bucket — both of which were inspired by a longstanding connection between the ocean, sailing, and rum. The collection was designed to celebrate the ocean and the brands’ commitments to protecting it – with every bag purchase, a contribution will be made to 4ocean’s Pound+ Program.

Each bag features a unique design that calls attention not only to Mount Gay and Sea Bags' respective ties to the ocean, but also nods to Mount Gay's conservation efforts. The rum brand has set a goal of employing 100 percent sustainable agriculture by 2025 and has an ongoing partnership with 4ocean, one of the world’s leading ocean conservation companies. To date, Mount Gay has helped remove 20,000 pounds of plastic from the world's oceans through its efforts. 

Beyond its ties through environmental efforts, Mount Gay's home in Barbados and ocean roots go as far as influencing the liquid inside every bottle. According to the brand, the ocean imparts distinct flavors in each bottle of Mount Gay. Everything from the coral filtered water to the ocean air used in the distillation process contributes its own unique flavor profile.

Shopping the Mount Gay x Sea Bags Ocean Currents Collection is a great way to not only show your support for ocean conservation, but it's also a great way to cut down on your own personal use of single-use plastic bags. 

Before you head over to shop the collection, make yourself a simple and delicious holiday-inspired take on an old fashioned and toast to making strides toward a sustainable future.

Mount Gay x Sea Bags Ocean Currents Collection

Reusable bags are a great way to cut down your own carbon footprint. They are also simply far superior to single-use plastic bags. The sustainable and USA-made bags in the Ocean Currents Collection handcrafted by Sea Bags are not only durable (thanks to the fact that they are crafted from 100 percent recycled sails and materials), but they are also stylish, with vibrant red accents and an ocean current pattern design.

If that isn't enough to convince you, each purchase from the collection directly funds efforts to clean up the ocean through a contribution to 4ocean’s Pound+ Program. Each purchase of the Tote funds the removal of two pounds of trash and the Beverage Bucket funds the removal of one pound of trash from the world's oceans.
