SEAQUAL® recycled marine plastic
Tons of plastic are dumped into our oceans every year
More than 40%
Are used only once, before being thrown away
SEAQUAL INITIATIVE is a unique collaborative community that works with ocean cleanup programs around the world to turn the marine litter they collect into SEAQUAL®, a new, fully traceable raw material that has the power to raise awareness of the problem of marine pollution and to highlight those who contribute to combating it. By choosing products containing SEAQUAL®, you are helping to clean up the oceans.
Today, all processing of marine plastic by SEAQUAL INITIATIVE is done in Europe. It is recovered during ocean clean-up operations in Europe, the Mediterranean and the west coast of Africa.
How does SEAQUAL® guarantee that the plastic comes from the oceans?
SEAQUAL INITIATIVE operates a Chain of Custody (CoC) throughout the supply chain, from ocean cleanup to final retail product. The CoC is a system of procedures and documents that trace the material from its origin to its end use. The CoC starts with a "certificate of origin" guaranteeing that the plastic has been removed from the marine environment. This certificate is signed by the registered organization responsible for the cleanup or the licensed waste management company collecting the marine plastic litter.
