Schüller supports Sustainable Design

It is nearly impossible to ignore Ellen MacArthur’s statement about how if the plastic menace in our oceans isn’t checked urgently, there will be more plastic than fish (by weight) in the water by year 2050. It is absolutely alarming and hence Schüller has tirelessly worked its processes towards more sustainable and ecologically conscious methodologies.

Where blue meets green

A handle that helps you in the kitchen and marine life in our oceans. Adopting sustainable materials that are created by innovative methods of collecting plastic trash from the oceans and recycling them into usable forms.

Oceanix Plastic is obtained by the recycling of old discarded fishing nets and other maritime plastic waste. It is ironic that the very industry that exists due to the oceans, are the biggest polluters of the oceans – the maritime industry.

This is how sustainable circular economy works

The raw material for recycling like fishing nets and ropes are sourced in cooperation with NGOs, public authorities, collectors, ports, fishermen. In addition to these sources the net and rope manufacturers are also looped in to give away their plastic waste. The recycled plastic is then moulded in the form of the handles that Schüller uses in their kitchens as a a step forward towards reducing global waste problem.

Take a deeper dive into the cause and action of the Danish cleantech company Plastix Global that recycles discarded fishing nets and trawls into usable green raw material.
