How to Support Ocean Cleaning With Fashion

Every year, there is more and more plastic produced. And tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean. How do you support ocean cleaning? It is possible with fashion.

Support for plastic waste collection and ocean cleaning is part of our company mission at Panaprium. We want to protect the environment, communities and wildlife. We train our employees on environmental protection, waste management, etc. at work and at home.

The Case for Recycled Fabrics

Recycled fabrics made from Aquafil Econyl yarns support cleaning of the oceans. Aquafil has been one of the main suppliers of synthetic fibers, in particular polyamide 6 for Italian fabrics from Carvico and Jersey Lomellina, for over 50 years.

Selecting sustainable fabrics during the design process help make fashion environmentally friendly. As consumers, we can pay more attention to the clothes we buy and change the world with our buying power.

Every year, more than 300 million tons of plastic are produced. And less than 10% of all plastic end up being recycled. Unfortunately, each year, 8 million tons of plastic are dumped into the ocean.

What is Wrong With Plastic?

Plastic waste has a huge impact on the environment. It takes thousands of years to decompose under cold conditions like in the ocean. Plastic pollutes the air, water and entire food chain, threatening human health, wildlife and the planet.

When buying fashion, we can support ocean cleaning. By picking garments made from healthy and safe materials such as Econyl. This innovative material is made from Nylon waste from landfills and oceans around the world transformed into regenerated nylon.

Why Buy Products Made From Regenerated Nylon

Nylon can be recycled, recreated and remolded and become brand new again to create new products without having to use new resources. By buying clothing made from such materials, you support a circular regenerative fashion industry and the cleaning of our oceans.

Econyl made from waste is infinitely recyclable and contribute to make the world a better place. Please keep in mind sustainably when choosing new products in the future. For every 10,000 tons of Econyl raw material, we save 70,000 barrels of crude oil and avoid 57,100 tonnes of CO2 emissions. This reduces the global warming impact of nylon by up to 80% compared with the material from oil.

Regenerated nylon can be used in stylish clothes, lingerie, swimwear and active wear. The final products are soft, durable, high quality and filled with creativity. Together let's drive the industry towards a sustainable future.
