What exactly is ocean plastic?

 

Plastic pollution in the ocean: Plastic pollution in the oceans is a pressing environmental problem that threatens marine ecosystems worldwide. Millions of tons of plastic enter the oceans every year, leading to a significant deterioration in water quality and damage to marine fauna.

Causes of pollution: Human activities are the main cause of this pollution. Inadequate waste disposal and management, especially in coastal regions, result in large quantities of plastic being washed into the oceans. Rivers, which serve as transportation routes for waste, also contribute significantly to marine pollution.

Impact on marine life: The impact on marine life is devastating. Animals, such as turtles, fish and marine mammals, mistake plastic for food, which can lead to internal injuries or death. Microplastics, i.e. small plastic particles, accumulate in the food chain, which has far-reaching consequences for the ecosystem.

Initiatives to combat plastic pollution: There are initiatives around the world to reduce plastic pollution. These range from international agreements to reduce the amount of plastic entering the oceans to local projects that focus on education, waste collection campaigns and recycling.

The role of the individual: Every individual can contribute to reducing plastic pollution. Conscious consumer behavior, the use of reusable products and participation in local cleanliness initiatives are simple but effective measures.

Future prospects: For the future, it is crucial that both individual and collective efforts are made to reduce plastic pollution in the oceans. Only through collective efforts can sustainable change be achieved and the health of our oceans be safeguarded.

Making something out of waste!

As the name suggests, ocean plastic is plastic waste that is fished out of the ocean. Over the years, tons of non-biodegradable waste have accumulated in the world's oceans. You will no doubt be familiar with the famous images of turtles caught in plastic packaging or sharks that have been killed by an unrecycled plastic fishing net. For Ocean Plastic, this waste is fished out of the oceans, processed and then used to make new things. Some of the manufacturers whose products you can find on koffer24 use Ocean Plastic in whole or in part during production, thus ensuring 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. Stylish suitcases and practical travel bags are also made from it these days. Ocean Bound Plastic (OPB) is then used in whole or in part in the production of sustainable luggage.

Collecting waste before it reaches the sea

In contrast to Ocean Plastic, the material Ocean Bound Plastic is not made from waste that has already ended up in the sea, but something is done earlier. For Ocean Bound Plastic, plastic waste is collected in the vicinity of coasts and beaches, usually up to 200 kilometers away. Sooner or later, this waste will be washed into the sea by tides, storms or other storms if it is not collected. The Ocean Bound Plastic principle therefore starts early, before the plastic can do its damage in the world's oceans.
