We are all aware of the plastic problem in our oceans and have a desire to help changing the situation and stop the plastic pollution in our oceans. To achieve this it requires an ethical supply-chain, which has a recycling approach and is controlled by independent organisations.
It starts with collecting plastic waste and preventing them from entering the oceans. Plastics for Change, has worked hard with their misson against plastic pollution in India for many years. The plastic pollution that ends up in our oceans and the extreme poverty in South Asia have led Plastic for Change to build an infrastructure for the collection and recycling of waste. Which protects the ocean and creates jobs for some of the poorest people in society. This recycling process not only helps keep the oceans clean and creates jobs, it also helps reducing greenhouse gases and protect our climate.
- Plastic waste is collected, sorted and cleaned.
- The plastic bottles gets crushed and torn into smaller pieces as "plastic flakes" and melted into liquid.
- This liquid is turned into fibers and become yarn that eventually is woven into a fine and durable polyester fabrics or ropes.
To establish transparency, traceability and control in our supply chain, we want our customers to be sure that we and our partners are generating the promised impact of the supply chain. A fully certified Ocean Bound Plastic supply chain in which every step is certified and controlled by an independent organization. The supply chain for our ocean bound plastic products is certified, controlled and audited by Zero Plastic Oceans Paris. They are very specific and vigilant about the traceability of used plastic bottles i.e, gathered by collectors and are buying the plastic bottles from Plastic For Change who are fantastic with their social attributes and organizing this collection of plastic in a very proper way. They are recycling this collected used bottles at Alliances Fibres LTD, Surat who are making these bottles into fabric, then the bags are being made with our supplier that is the first Ocean Bound Plastic Certified manufacturer of bags/accessories, having their own manufacturing unit in Kolkata.
