BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year nominee Sky Brown and her brother Ocean Brown announced as PATCH ambassadors

World-class athletes Sky (aged 11) and Ocean (aged 8) Brown have been named as the first ambassadors to represent PATCH – the world’s first 100% compostable bandage strips that are highly effective, are good for delicate skin and don’t negatively impact the environment. Sky and Ocean are globally recognised for their skating and surfing talent and are both on track to compete in the Tokyo 2020 Olympics.

Made from bamboo fibre, the vegan-friendly and home-compostable PATCH strips have been designed to encourage kids to live life to the full, something that is essential for Sky and Ocean as they train and perfect new tricks.

Sky Brown, who was named a BBC Young Sports Personality of the Year nominee earlier this month, says of the partnership: “My advice is to just get out there and don’t care what people think, don’t give up and try your best! Scratches are natural; so are patches. I love how PATCH is in a little box that you can bring everywhere – I like it because it doesn’t add to the trash.”

The talented siblings were chosen to represent the B-Corp ‘Best in World’ health company after their determined, unstoppable attitudes to trying new things wowed PATCH founder and CEO James Dutton.

James developed PATCH strips after his youngest son, Charlie, suffered a severe allergic reaction to common plaster adhesive. He realised that there was a gap in the market for an effective hypoallergenic solution that could be composted to avoid contributing to plastic waste.

James said: “We’re so excited about our partnership with Sky and Ocean – I created PATCH because I wanted my kids to be able to live life without fears or limits, and this is exactly what these two represent. We see scratches, bruises and cuts as little badges of honour. Signs of a life lived to the fullest. A tree climbed, a dance floor owned or in Sky and Ocean’s case – a championship won!

“Why hide your wounds when you can show it off to the world with PATCH? There are no limitations when it comes to providing parents with a solution to help their children get the best out of life”.

Sky and Ocean’s ambassadorship comes as PATCH opens its applications for 2020 Challengers Programme. Proud to support some of the world’s best athletes – like Sky and Ocean – PATCH is looking for the next generation of heroes to work with the brand.
