What is kelp?

Kelp is a special species of seaweed, scientifically known as macroalgae. The large, brown, nutrient-dense and antioxidant-packed seaweed we harvest grows and sways in the cool, tidal shallows of Northeast Atlantic coastlines. These dense underwater forests, featuring a regenerative, zero input crop, create habitat and local ecosystem for various ocean dwellers, both swimming and crawling. Kelp also has a unique ability, similar to that of its land based cousins, to sequester substantial amounts of atmospheric carbon and reduce ocean acidification, establishing itself as a critical link in the chain of our planet's sustained health.
