A GREEN PRODUCTION
OCEANS OF PLASTIC
For most of us it is normal to meet more plastic than fish in the ocean and according to the United Nations, of the 300 millions tons of plastic we create each year, only 9% are recycled. The more than 5 trillion pieces of plastic already in the oceans, are causing severe damage to marine life.
HOW CAN WE RECYCLE THE BOTTLES
Beyondbun’s collection is made of 99,9% recycled plastic.
The ocean bound plastic is collected by waste management.
It is then cleaned and shredded into small flakes.
Finally it is reprocessed into soft and resistant polyester yarn, ready to be spun and knitted.
Our collection is living proof that plastic bottles, just like the ones in your fridge, can ultimately find their way back into your home instead of the ocean.
EARTH FRIENDLY DYES
Children have much more sensitive skin than adults and especially babies have highly absorbent skin. Traditional dyes are packed with chemicals which can cause skin irritation, dryness and rashes.
They are also highly damaging to the ecosystems once the waste water finds its way into rivers and the ocean.
The Beyondbun collection uses Oeko-Tex® certified dyes, which means they are non-toxic and free from these harmful chemicals. The process is water-efficient and eco friendly as we capture and reuse waste water during the washing processes.
UN SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing.
