GREENTEXOCEAN is another product from our GREENTEX range.
GREENTEXOCEAN filament and staple fiber yarns are made fromused PET bottles that are collected in coastal areas and therefore can not enter the sea.
These coastal areas are located in regions whose seas are particularly affected by plastic pollution.
A single PET bottle takes about 450 years to decompose. As a result, the amount of plastic waste in the oceans is constantly increasing.
With GREENTEXOCEAN, Carl Weiske is helping to prevent plastic from entering the oceans in the first place, and to collect it before it reaches the sea.
In this way, we help to keep the environment in coastal areas clean and to reduce pollution of the oceans.
We have decided against the use of plastic from the sea in our GREENTEX yarns.
Plastic from the sea is not collected in coastal areas, but rather „fished“ directly from the sea. While cleaning the oceans is also extremely important, we do not believe that the plastic collected from the seas is suitable for use in textiles.
This is because PET bottles attract pollutants like a „sponge“ after years of floating in the sea and should therefore not be further processed into textiles.
