GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ yarns are made from trash collected by the Waterkeeper Alliance, an international group with 300 chapters in 35 countries. The local chapters manage beach clean-up events and almost 100% of the plastic shoreline trash collected is used to make GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ yarns. In addition, the new Hunter Douglas 'U-Turn' programme also targets beach clean-up events with our employees
Hunter Douglas GreenScreen Sea-Tex®
made with recovered shoreline plastic
Our latest innovation, Greenscreen Sea-Tex® is the world’s first solar control fabric made with recycled ocean plastic waste. The plastic in the Pacific Ocean has created a 'plastic soup' of up to 15 million square kilometres which would take hundreds of years to break down. Helping clean up this waste is one of the world’s most pressing environmental concerns.
THE FIVE GYRES
The oceans currents have formed 5 gigantic whirlpools where the plastic waste collects. A recent study conservatively estimated that 5.25 trillion plastic pieces are currently floating in the world’s oceans.
