Estimates suggest that 9 million tons of plastic waste dumps into the world’s oceans every year.
The ocean currents, wind and waves form giant collections of this plastic which, in turn, become floating hazards and kill our sea animals. Luxaflex® is proud to be part of a program that has already reclaimed over 30 tons of plastic waste washed ashore.
What’s more, we’ve put it to good use. Our latest innovation, GreenScreen® Sea-Tex™ is the world's first fabric for roller blinds and vertical blinds, made from recycled shoreline plastic.
