The oceans have a fundamental role in the water cycle, in the chemical composition of the atmosphere, and in the moderation of the climate. According to “Science” magazine, 8 million tons of plastic bottles go to the oceans each year.
Plastic is one of the most polluting materials for the ocean. It can take up to 1,000 years to biodegrade. By 2050, there will be more plastic waste than fish in the sea. Tavex joins the cause of recycling plastic bottles with the use of REPREVE® fiber. With its use, we help to recycle more than 14 billion plastic bottles per year, targeting 20 billion bottles recycled by 2020 and 30 billion bottles by 2022. REPREVE® transforms recycled bottles into an amazing fiber!
