The fishermen clean all waste from the ocean, not just PET but also PP, PA, metal, rubber, glass and other materials.The PET marine waste used for the FIBRE represents around 10% of the total waste retrieved, therefore for every kilo of the FIBRE produced ONE kilo of waste is cleaned from the ocean*.

 

What is the origin of the FIBRE?

Current FIBRE is made from marine waste recovered from the Atlantic and
Mediterranean in Europe. The waste is recycled at centres in Spain and then delivered to Spanish and Portuguese fabric mills.
