Our oceans are our greatest shared natural resource. Together we can clean, repair and protect them
The global volume of plastic waste continues to grow, such plastic breaks down into microplastics which enters our food chain and has damaging effects to marine animals and our eco system. The time to act is now, SEQUAL INITIATIVE raises awareness of the problem of marine litter and gives visibility to the many people and organisations working hard to clean our oceans.
What is SEAQUAL INITIATIVE?
SEAQUAL INITIATIVE (find out more) is a unique collaborative community that works with ocean clean-up programs around the world to transform the marine litter they recover into Upcycled Marine Plastic; a new, fully traceable raw material with the power to raise awareness of the issue of marine pollution and highlight those helping to fight it. In choosing products containing Upcycled Marine Plastic, you are helping to clean our oceans.
For every 50m roll of SEALIFE produced, 12Kg of marine litter is removed from our oceans
SEALIFE is a cross-functional yarn created entirely from post-consumer recycled plastics, woven from a blend of 50% SEQUAL® YARN, created from plastics collected from the oceans and beaches, and 50% recycled polyester yarn created from recycled polyester from land plastic (PET bottles).
With a rich colour palette of 12 solid hues and 18 melange tones, SEALIFE is available in pastel, vibrant and natural shades. View the full SEALIFE range here.
