And we have hoodies!

Rimurimu (seaweed) is some bad-ass stuff! When it’s in healthy abundance it can absorb more carbon than trees, improve water quality, protect our coastlines, provide a home and food source for thousands of sea creatures - and can even be put on a t-shirt or hoodie! What’s not to love? Helping to restore seaweed forests will create ecosystem health, build our knowledge and provide great opportunities for innovation.

Everything we learn through this process will be shared open-source for other community groups to use, and we are continuing to collaborate widely throughout the life of this project.
