We believe that truly circular systems are characterized by meticulous concepts for textile disposal. A take-back system can do such concept justice and ensures that no textile item goes to waste. Once returned, OceanSafe has partners in place to close material loops, withadvanced textile-to-textile recycling or, where available, industrial composting.
We know the precise chemical content of all components and chemicals. This knowledge is a huge advantage for end of life processes: In most other cases for textile waste, the chemical content of waste is unclear, and may be contaminated.
We are following up closely on innovative textile-to-textile recycling solutions, where returned products can provide additional value and where material loops are closed.
