Three-quarters of the waste in the sea consists of plastic. This means that between 4.8 and 12.7 million tons of plastic end up in the sea every year. Many suppliers are taking steps to improve this situation with projects of taking plastic from the seas to create new yarn and working on solutions how to process ocean waste in textiles.
This is the focus of the Performance Forum, part of the Performance Days functional fabric fair which will take place from December 9-10, 2020 as a digital fair, where fabrics will be presented that integrate ocean waste in the materials.
Under the theme, “Nothing to Waste - Closing the Loop”, the trade fair takes a closer look at the status quo of the textile circular economy, with resulting recommendations for action as inspiration for own (further) developments.
