Our company was founded in 2019 with a vision to make a sustainable athletic line made from recycled material. With a dual-purpose mission of raising awareness and funding for our oceans. We envision ending the flow of single-use plastics into our oceans. Our passion of the sea is what made us dive into this initiative. With every purchase partial proceeds will go towards research, development and clean up expeditions for ocean plastics. #makewavesnotwaste www.seaav.ca @seaavision

My professors at Quinnipiac University, in particular Dale Jasinski, Whitney Sanders & David Tomczyk. I would also like to thank Mike Roer from the Connecticut Entrepreneurship Foundation Competition for his funding, network and competitions. I'd also like to thank Eric Knight for his mentorship. Lastly, I'd like to thank Baruch and his team at Gottex Studio for working pro bono with SEAAV Athletics.

 

What people are saying about Mckenna Haz ...

 My sister is a Sophmore student at Quinnipiac that has started her business SEAAV Athletics. She is helping clean up the ocean and recycling plastic bottles into her athletic apparel.  

Cooper

 McKenna is a student at Quinnipiac University. She launched her business in the last couple months SEAAV Athletics. It is a sustainable athletic apparel line made partially with recycled bottles and with every purchase 1 pound of trash is collected from ocean. I think she would be a great nominee for the student category.  

Jaxon Panico

 This talented young Quinnipiac student is a modern day thinker who has started her own sustainable athletic apparel line. Recycled bottles are spun into clothing and with every purchase 1 pound of plastic is collected from the ocean. She is making waves with this new start up we need acknowledge those individuals driving initiatives towards helping our planet and Mckenna Haz is certainly worthy of this with all that she does and continues to do.
