NEW YORK, Nov. 10, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- In collaboration with the pop-culture space TV show and podcast, StarTalk hosted by renowned Astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, sustainable travel and lifestyle brand, Solgaard, announces the launch of the new limited edition Solgaard x StarTalk Outta' This World travel gear collection.
Made from upcycled ocean-bound plastic, the collection features five new limited-edition designs from Solgaard's award-winning sustainable product portfolio, inspired by the Earth, Moon, and Mars. Every purchase from the Solgaard x StarTalk Outta' This World travel collection upcycles the equivalent of 229 ocean-bound plastic bottles.
Inspired by NASA, the Earth product range features three sustainable accessories - including Solgaard's award-winning Carry-On Closet, Shoreline Hex Watch, and Artemis Backpack crafted in Solgaard's Shore-Tex™ proprietary upcycled ocean-bound plastic fabric.
The Moon Edition Carry-On Closet features Montes Apenninus, a 3.9-billion-year-old Apennine Mountain range on the lunar surface spanning more than 370 miles in length and 17,700 feet in height.
The Mars Edition Carry-On Closet showcases Valles Marineris, known as 'the Grand Canyon of Mars' located just south of the Martian equator.
The intersection of science, exploration, and sustainability; the Astro-inspired gear collection was a creative design collaboration between the Founder and CEO of Solgaard, Adrian Solgaard, and the StarTalk team.
"Neil has often described that it was only after astronauts gazed back at our home planet in the 1960's that humanity began to understand how fragile our pale blue dot is. By collaborating with StarTalk to launch this collection, our goal was to creatively underscore the importance of coming together to build a better future and bridge the gap between space, exploration, and sustainability to improve the health of our home planet," said Adrian Solgaard, Solgaard Founder and CEO.
As deGrasse Tyson has famously stated, "during our brief stay on planet earth, we owe ourselves and our descendants the opportunity to explore."
The limited-edition Solgaard x StarTalk Outta' This World collection is available now, exclusively at www.solgaard.co/startalk.

Founded in 2016 by Canadian-Norwegian entrepreneur, Adrian Solgaard, the company has prevented the equivalent of 17 million plastic bottles from entering the ocean since its inception.
