KRISTIN HETTERMANN LAUNCHES OCEANSCAPES LIFESTYLE, AN OCEAN-INSPIRED PRODUCT LINE BENEFITTING OCEAN CONSERVATION
INTERNATIONALLY RENOWNED PHOTOGRAPHER SUPPORTS NGO OCEANIC GLOBAL THROUGH NEW ONLINE STORE
DECEMBER 2018 - Internationally renowned underwater photographer, Kristin Hettermann, announces the launch of OCEANSCAPES Lifestyle, an online artivism-focused product collection offering lifestyle creations that benefit the ocean conservation NGO, Oceanic Global.
Just in time for the holidays, the OCEANSCAPES Lifestyle collection includes hoodies, travel bags, beach towels, and more that depict Kristin Hettermann’s celebrated imagery from global locations including: St. Barth, Hawaii, Indonesia, Gozo, and the Dominican Republic. The combination of beautiful imagery and functional products offers an array of perfect gifts for ocean lovers worldwide. Designed to offer fun, creative, and affordable gifts for self and others that inspire us to “feel the ocean,” items in collection are priced at under $85 and standard shipping is FREE and estimated in 2-6 days, with expedited options available.
OCEANSCAPES Founder Kristin Hettermann was inspired to create a product line of ocean art pieces that could be used and admired, but also support and raise awareness for the challenges the ocean is facing, “I have been very impressed with the efficient and effective work that Ocean Global has done in the past few years in the ocean conservation space and wanted to do something to support their goals. Among other things, Oceanic Global takes a uniquely creative approach to conservation, creating immersive experiences that engage local communities, amplify the efforts of synergistic groups, generate measurable impact, and ignite global action.”
Targeting an international audience with a predominantly millennial focus, one of Oceanic’s recent major community events in Ibiza was a major influence in Ibiza’s government passing policy to go single use plastic free by 2020. Funds raised through this OCEANSCAPES Lifestyle Collection will benefit The Oceanic Standard program, focused on removing plastic from the waste cycle and encouraging businesses to adopt sustainable practices.

“My OCEANSCAPES artivism conceptual ideology developed over a decade of extensive international travel and ocean exploration, as I continued to share my photography as art including inherent cause messaging and experiential insight.
