The Pacific Garbage Patch
The Pacific Garbage Patch is a vast accumulation of marine debris that has gathered in the North Pacific Ocean. This massive swirling mass of trash, estimated to be twice the size of Texas, is a startling testament to the magnitude of plastic pollution in our oceans.
The garbage patch is primarily composed of plastic waste, including bottles, bags, fishing nets, and other discarded materials that have been carried by ocean currents and concentrated in this region. The high concentration of plastic particles poses a significant threat to marine life, as animals often mistake the debris for food or become entangled in it, leading to injury or death.
The Pacific Garbage Patch serves as a stark reminder of the urgent need to address plastic pollution, not only through improved waste management and recycling but also by promoting sustainable practices and raising awareness about the detrimental impact of plastic on our marine ecosystems.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
We are committed to reducing our impact on the planet by incorporating recycled poly into our manufacturing processes. By using recycled poly, which is derived from post-consumer plastic waste, we actively participate in the circular economy. This sustainable approach helps divert plastic waste from landfills and oceans, mitigating the environmental harm caused by plastic pollution. By transforming discarded materials into usable resources, we reduce the demand for virgin materials and conserve valuable natural resources. Moreover, our use of recycled poly significantly lowers carbon emissions and energy consumption compared to traditional production methods.
