Plastic debris continues to pollute the ocean, shorelines and coastal communities. Yet this plastic waste can be used as a resource to replace virgin materials when collected and upcycled into new products.
Ocean Plastic® is a range of premium materials for the sports, fashion and luxury industries made from intercepted and upcycled marine plastic debris. Ocean Plastic® replaces virgin materials and allows for the implementation of Parley's long-term strategy: Parley AIR — Avoid, Intercept, Redesign.
Parley developed the first global supply chain for upcycled marine plastic debris and introduced Ocean Plastic®, a range of eco-innovative materials which champion a vision for a material revolution. Ocean Plastic® is created from upcycled plastic waste intercepted by Parley from remote islands, shorelines, waters and in coastal communities. As a catalyst for progress and an immediate replacement for virgin plastic, Ocean Plastic® raises awareness as well as funding for education and eco-innovation initiatives supporting long-term solutions to marine plastic pollution.
Parley materials aim to inspire and empower the creative industries to build a better future. Parley sees the key to ending marine plastic pollution not in recycling, but in the redesign and replacement of harmful materials, methods and thinking.
