Rubbish clothing

AN unusual but potentially important ecological project was presented at last weekend’s Denia Boat Show. “Ecoalf, Up-cycling the Oceans” is an international initiative to turn marine waste into clothing. It was explained how rubbish was collected from the world’s sea and then turned into a top quality yarn which is then utilised to make clothing. There are three main objectives, eliminating waste from the oceans, recycling waste materials and raising awareness. Garments made in this way are said to appeal particularly to younger more environmentally aware buyers.
