“I started Marc Skid because I believed that brands should be more like the people we love in life. I think it's universal that we are drawn to people with a sense of humor, who are purposeful in their lives, and who have strong character. The brand's call to action is "Make Your Marc on the World." Inspired by our motto, I strived with everything about the brand to help make the world a better place. I had some inclination about many aspects of the brand -- using organic Pima cotton and giving a helping hand to those in need and to our beautiful world. However, one thing I did not know is that water bottles are just polyester in a different form. Although it costs more, to stay true to my mission, I decided to use upcycled water bottles for my waistbands. Having come from the corporate world, I know most corporations will not incur additional cost unless demanded by consumers. Do you want to Make a Marc on the World? One way is to demand that we first use upcycled plastic before we make any new plastic. To help, I want to introduce you to companies using 100% upcycled plastic to create their products. I encourage you to vote with your purchases. Together we can Make a Marc on the World!”
