Materials

Project Blu converts a wide range of polluting materials into sustainable designs. These include ocean-bound plastic, recycled clothes, recycled leather and discarded fishing nets.

We are constantly innovating our product range and seeking new polluting materials that we can convert into sustainable designs.

Who said you can’t teach an old dog new tricks?

We combine ocean-bound plastic and recycled clothes into a unique fabric mix that is soft, durable and extremely hard wearing. Our bed fillings are also filled with upcycled plastic materials.

We work with local coastal communities in India and the Philippines to collect plastic waste. Our plastic is collected from oceans, rivers, beaches and landfill. 80% of ocean plastic is from the World's poorest nations.

The primary objective of Project Blu's mission is to prevent plastic from entering the ocean. Less that 5% of Ocean plastic reaches the surface or washes up on coastlines. The majority sinks to the bottom of the ocean where it is broken down into polluting micro-plastics. The micro-plastics are ingested by marine animals and the toxins are now entering the human foodchain.

Cleaning the ocean is not enough. We need to work with local communities in the World's poorest nations to stop the flow of plastic from entering our oceans.

CIRCULAR MODEL

Project Blu has a circular business model which aims to maximise our impact on the environment whilst helping reduce poverty.

Discarded fishing nets

Ghost fishing nets make up an estimated 10% of plastic in the ocean. Lost or abandoned fishing nets continues to catch marine life, as it is designed to do. This has an undoubted but rarely documented effect on the local ecosystem.

Ocean-bound plastic

We convert polluting plastic into recycled polyester fabric and fillings. An estimated 8 million metrics tons of plastic waste ends up in our oceans every year.

Recycled textiles

Fashion production makes up 10% of humanity's carbon emissions, dries up water sources, and pollutes rivers and streams. The industry is the second-largest consumer of the world's water supply, and pollutes the oceans with microplastics.

Recycled leather

A significant amount of traditional leather is unused and often destined for landfill. Mass produced and chemically tanned leather uses extremely toxic chemicals, many of which are known carcinogens.
