Making waves in the fight against ocean pollution
Each year, around 12 million tons of plastics are dumped into our seas and oceans, and we have all seen or experienced shocking images of the huge effect on marine life and ecology. The SEAQUAL Initiative is a community of individuals, organisations and companies working together to help clean our oceans and raise awareness of the issue of marine litter. SEAQUAL works with ocean clean-ups around the world to bring value to the waste that they recover, and then they work with waste management and recycling industries to transform marine litter into upcycled marine plastic so that leading brands and manufacturers can create inspiring, sustainable products.
One aspect of this huge initiative is the development of SEAQUAL yarn, which is a high quality 100% post-consumer recycled polyester yarn, which can be used in a multitude of applications including home furnishings and technical textiles, such as high quality mattress covers.
The Komfi Active Collection features this amazing SEAQUAL technology, and can be found as an optional cover choice on the Trend, Primo and Select models. It also plays an important part in our drive towards an ethically designed mattress range which is better for the environment.
