About Slick Daddy
Who are we?
Slick Daddy is a purpose built brand featuring natural and organic grooming and sun protection products from Byron Bay, Australia. Passionately designed by us, we source ingredients locally and around the globe. Our products are designed to be simple to use, yet super effective, are never tested on animals and some are even handmade right here locally!
Clean the oceans. Our aim is to purchase and deploy one thousand seabins over the next ten years.
What’s a Seabin?
Manufactured by Seabin Group, The V5 Seabin unit is a “trash skimmer” designed to be installed in the water of Marinas, Yacht Clubs, Ports and any water body with a calm environment and suitable services available.
The unit acts as a floating garbage bin skimming the surface of the water by pumping water into the device. The Seabin V5 can intercept: floating debris, macro and micro plastics and even micro fibres with an additional filter. By acting as a trash skimmer, the Seabin V5 is also able to clean the water from contaminated organic material (leaves, seaweed, etc…).
The Seabin V5 is easily equipped with oil absorbent pads able to absorb petroleum-based surface oils and detergent predominant in most marinas around the world. Source: https://seabinproject.com
My name's Andy and I live in Byron bay, Australia. I'm the founder of Slick Daddy which has been purpose built to help combat the single use plastic crisis. After spending a large amount of my 20's travelling and seeing first-hand the degradation of life on the beaches and reefs of Australia and the wider world, it became clear that the single use plastic crisis is out of control. With a little research, I discovered that all plastic ever manufactured is still with us today in some form. Reports say that only 9% of plastic ever made has been recycled, and recent studies show that the more accurate recycling rate of plastic once accounting for down cycling and re-using is less than 1%. Further, reports say that marine plastic pollution is present in 100% of marine turtles, 59% of whales, 36% of seals & 40% of seabird life. 100,000 marine mammals, turtles & 1,000,000 sea birds are killed by marine plastic pollution annually. Plastic is in the food we eat, the water we drink and the air we breathe. This is not a problem that any one government can take ownership of or resolve and so Slick Daddy is hoping to do our part in the fight against plastic. As it stands, we're actively developing new and existing sustainable products that are environmentally conscious and investing in a cleaner future by committing to the task of cleaning our oceans.
