The SEAQUAL INITIATIVE is a community with a single voice against plastic pollution. They bring together individuals, organizations and companies, to help clean our oceans and raise awareness of the issue of marine plastic.
Working alongside the various ocean clean up projects happening around the world, they take the marine plastics gathered and recycle this into a high quality fabric that can be used in clothing and sports apparel.
Every year 12 MILLION TONS of plastic is dumped into our oceans around the world.
This has devastating consequences to the marine mammals and sea birds who also depend on our oceans. To put this into perspective, each year...
1,000,000 sea birds die.
100,000 marine mammals die.
Only 6% of plastics are found on the oceans surface or beaches so can be captured easily. 94% is found on the oceans floor so is incredibly difficult to collect.
