Marine debris is litter that ends up in oceans. In the batch we had for Wasteland, there was a large percentage of unrecyclable items, such as pieces that contain foreign matters, broken pieces, fishing net, degraded mixed materials.
Plastic degrades in oceans. To produce Wasteland, we added 40% of virgin plastic and a small orange batch in the mix of the marine debris, to make sure the product is durable and maintain stability in use.
Why create the problem and then try to solve it? Cleaning up marine debris is not easy. Wasteland inspired us to search for a better solution to help reduce waste. It leads us to creating the ReCo refill delivery system.
