We are proud to present the world´s first upholstery textile woven from 100% ocean-bound polyester.
The yarn used to produce Sport is derived entirely from post-consumer plastic, collected no further than 10 km away from coastlines in Thailand.
Every year, 31.9 million metric tons of plastic waste is generated within coastal regions. Often, such regions do not have the adequate waste management infrastructure needed to collect and recycle post-consumer plastic. As a consequence, it is very likely that the waste ends up in the ocean.
Ocean-bound plastic is estimated to generate 80% of marine plastic waste. Sport's yarn derives entirely from plastic waste collected and processed before it reaches the ocean's shoreline. Collecting this plastic around coastlines is a sustainable initiative to prevent it from reaching and polluting the ocean.
