Pacsafe to unveil ocean plastic ECONYL bag collection

The collection is the first of many steps the company is taking to demonstrate its commitment to removing virgin plastic from all new products by 2023

With an estimated eight million tons of plastic dumped into our oceans every year, anti-theft travel gear manufacturer Pacsafe is to introduce a new collection that gives plastic waste a second life. Launching on 1 July, the Pacsafe ECONYL Collection uses regenerated fabric made from fishing nets and other discarded nylon.

The new collection takes best-selling Pacsafe styles, such as Venturesafe EXP45 and Metrosafe LS350, and recreates them utilizing recycled waste. The unique ECONYL regeneration process creates durable, long-lasting yarn that performs to the same standard as brand-new nylon. Unlike other recycled materials, the nylon can be rewoven infinitely without losing its high-performance qualities, creating a circular loop of reuse.

“Pacsafe was founded out of a passion for adventure and exploration, and with that comes a deep love of our planet and preserving its natural beauty,” commented Magnus McGlashan, co-founder and managing director. “Our partnership with ECONYL means less plastic in our oceans and landfills, and fewer resources used to create new products. It’s all part of our wider commitment to reduce ocean plastic while helping people protect their gear and the planet at the same time.”

Additionally, for every Pacsafe ECONYL bag purchased, the company will donate US$1 to the Pacsafe Turtle Fund, which helps protect marine life by providing annual grants to sea turtle conservation projects around the world.

Plastic Free World Conference & Expo 2019 will take place from Thursday 27 June to Friday 28 June, at the Kap Europa, Frankfurt Messe, Frankfurt, Germany.
