Our premium, eco-innovative materials set new industry standards and transform products into symbols of change
MARINE PLASTIC POLLUTION
PLASTIC IS A DESIGN FAILURE. ONCE PRODUCED, IT NEVER DIES
An estimated 8 million tons of plastic waste enters our oceans every year. Instead of breaking down, plastic breaks apart into tiny pieces. These fragments end up in the marine food web, posing a major threat to sea life and to human health.
CLEANUPS & EDUCATION
INTERCEPTING PLASTIC WASTE & EMPOWERING COMMUNITIES
The Parley global cleanup network works in collaboration with local groups and governments around the world to remove plastic waste from remote islands, shorelines and waters. It’s never just about cleaning up. Our programs also aim to educate and empower communities, and especially youth, in the movement to end marine plastic pollution.
WE TURNED THE PROBLEM INTO AN OPPORTUNITY
With the help of our network, we created Ocean Plastic®, 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 our long-term strategy: Parley AIR — Avoid, Intercept, Redesign
SYMBOLS OF CHANGE
CREATIVITY, COLLABORATION AND ECO-INNOVATION
Products made from Ocean Plastic® become symbols of change, raising awareness and funding the fight against marine plastic pollution. Purpose is the new luxury.
DRIVING THE MATERIAL REVOLUTION
Parley developed the first global supply chain for upcycled marine plastic debris and introduced Ocean Plastic®, a range of eco-innovative materials which champion our vision for the 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. Our 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. Plastic is a design failure. There is no closed-loop for a faulty material that never dies. We are therefore calling for a Material Revolution and inviting all members of the creative industries to take part by implementing Parley AIR: Avoid. Intercept. Redesign.
