We discovered two major sources of marine plastic waste. Each year, many tons of old carpet tiles are removed from buildings and dumped into the ocean, while large numbers of old nylon fishing nets are also scrapped at sea. We developed “Mode Style” carpet tiles made from such recycled materials. Our goal is to completely recycle scrapped carpet tiles into new products. We plan to create a new organization to work with other manufacturers and cut the flow of marine waste to zero. We are appriying 16 items for iF award.
