With SEAQUAL we use one of the most certified, earth friendly fibers in the world. It's a high quality recycled polyester yarn made from recycled materials, including post consumer plastic bottles and plastic captured from the sea.
Seaqual has the same properties as fibers made from “fresh” polyester, but is far superior to these in terms of ecological footprint. It actively contributes to the cleaning of the oceans, saves up to 40% water consumption and 50% energy consumption and reduces CO2 emissions by 60%.
Upcycling the oceans
Well, you have enough facts and figures? Otherwise we will just come straight to why we use this fiber for our sneakers:
1. Cleaning our oceans and the entire marine environment: the ocean floor and surface, rivers and estuaries, beaches and coastlines.
2. Helping local society move towards a more sustainable way of living, towards a circular economy, acting ‘glocally’: global and locally.
3. Supporting and engaging with SEAQUAL Heroes and their stories (NGOs, fishermen, local communities and researchers).
4. Developing beautiful and sustainable everyday products containing Upcycled Marine Plastic, a 100% recycled material with full traceability.
