Yesterday hazardous marine waste – today high-quality roll-ups, displays and much more. SEAQUAL® YARN makes it possible: a sustainable yarn made from upcycled marine plastic. Behind this is an initiative that has declared war on the pollution of the world’s oceans and is working together with FLYERALARM.
According to the WWF, an estimated 4.8 to 12.7 million tonnes of plastic waste end up in the oceans every year. That corresponds to about one full truckload per minute. These masses of waste not only threaten marine animals and destroy natural livelihoods. Microplastics released in decomposition processes accumulate in the food chain – with unforeseeable consequences for humans. So what can be done? Avoiding plastic waste is one thing. The other is to collect and recycle the existing marine plastic. This is exactly where the SEQUAL INITIATIVE comes in.
SEAQUAL INITIATIVE – working together for clean oceans
The SEAQUAL INITIATIVE is a global community of NGOs, fishermen, researchers, scientists, public authorities and private stakeholders. Together they work to clean up the oceans, rivers and estuaries, beaches and coastlines. But not only that. Certified manufacturers produce a high-tech yarn from this seemingly useless waste that is unparalleled in terms of sustainability and resource consumption: SEAQUAL® YARN. FLYERALARM has joined the global community and offers more and more advertising material made from this particularly sustainable material for sale. But it is a long way from plastic waste to advertising banners made of high-tech yarn.
The rethink begins: Upcycled Marine Plastic
It all starts with local fishermen, local environmental protection alliances and other private actors. They collect all the rubbish they find in the oceans, on beaches and estuaries. Because that’s one of SEAQUAL INITIATIVE’s mottos: “We don’t look for materials to recycle, we recycle the materials we find.” The different types of materials are carefully sorted by SEAQUAL INITIATIVE partners and fed into the recycling loop. A new and sustainable raw material, Upcycled Marine Plastic, is created from the PET plastic share of the total waste volume. Seemingly useless plastic waste is thus given a meaningful purpose.
A second life for plastic: SEAQUAL® YARN
Upcycled Marine Plastic can already be found in sports shoes, backpacks and now also in classic advertising materials such as roll-ups – in the form of SEAQUAL® YARN. The special polyester yarn consists of 100% recycled materials – on the one hand from Upcycled Marine Plastic, on the other hand from PET waste. The special feature: SEAQUAL® YARN is in no way inferior to conventional polyester. It has all the advantages of conventional polyesters and adds a few benefits on top:
Advantages of SEAQUAL® YARN
