If we don’t take action now, there will be more plastic than fish in the sea by 2050. It is estimated that up to 10 million tonnes of plastic waste enters the ocean from coastal communities each year. Plastic bags, bottles and other plastic accumulate, forming huge patches of waste. Waves of plastic are rolling on our beaches. In the ocean, plastic pullout impacts sea turtles, whales, seabirds, fish, coral reefs and countless other species and habitats. Marine and bay areas are increasingly becoming less viable environments for humans and animals alike.
Social & Sustainable
Social Plastic® helps people living in poverty to build a better future for themselves and their families. Plastic Bank creates social and environmental impact in areas of high poverty and plastic pollution by turning waste into currency. Their mission is to encourage people to recycle plastic through collection in exchange for money, goods or services. Plastic collected by Plastic Bank (Social Plastic®) is cleaned and recycled before being used by ADVANSA as a raw material for their filling fibres.
All bedding products produced using Aerelle® Blue fibre-filling will carry an individually numbered label to ensure full traceability and transparency. The reliability and ecological credibility are further supported by a certification process with Global Recycling Standard (GRS).
