The Process

FROM WASTE TO PRODUCT

Clean-up programmes working with SEAQUAL INITIATIVE clean all waste from the ocean including; PET, PP, PA, metal, rubber, glass and other materials. 

SEAQUAL INITIATIVE estimates that for every kilo of SEAQUAL® YARN, between 600 grams and 1 kilo of marine litter has been cleaned from our ocean.

It then gets turned into flakes, then pellets and sent to the factory in Spain. The pellets get bound into yarn then made into our clothing.

WHAT IS THE SEAQUAL® YARN MADE FROM?

 

The Fibre is made from Upcycled Marine Plastic.

Why is the % of marine litter not higher?

This composition allows us to up-cycle as much of the waste recovered from the ocean as possible whilst offering a premium fiber which can replace virgin polyester in any application.  At higher percentages we would need to be more selective of the marine waste we use resulting in less of the recovered marine waste being upcycled and instead being sent to landfill or incineration.
