What is Ocean Plastic?
If you want to travel sustainably, you should look at what materials your suitcases and travel bags are made of. One of the sustainable materials is Ocean Plastic. Luggage can be made entirely or partially from it and thus actively contributes to environmental protection.
Create added value from trash
As the name suggests, Ocean Plastic is plastic trash that is fished out of the ocean. Over the years, the world's oceans have accumulated tons of trash that is not biodegradable. I'm sure you've seen the famous pictures of turtles caught in plastic packaging or sharks killed by an unrecycled plastic fishing net. For Ocean Plastic, this waste is fished out of the oceans, it is processed and then new things can be created from it. Some of the manufacturers whose products you can find on koffer24 use Ocean Plastic in whole or in part during production and thus ensure sustainable luggage.
And what is Ocean Bound Plastic?
Ocean Bound Plastic is another material you should keep your eyes open for when looking for sustainable luggage. It's also used to make stylish suitcases and practical travel bags these days. Ocean Bound Plastic (OPB) is then used in whole or in part in the manufacture of sustainable luggage.
Picking up the trash before it gets into the ocean
Unlike Ocean Plastic, Ocean Bound Plastic does not use garbage that has already ended up in the sea, but does something earlier. For Ocean Bound Plastic, plastic waste is collected that is located near, usually up to 200 kilometers away, coasts and beaches. This waste will sooner or later be washed into the sea by tides, storms or other inclement weather if it is not picked up. Therefore, the Ocean Bound Plastic principle starts early, even before the plastic can do its damage in the world's oceans.
