In a world where over 8 million metric tons of plastics infiltrate our oceans annually, the need for action is critical. The repercussions, from the loss of marine life to plastic entering our food chain, demand a solution. Yet, amidst this crisis, a triumph unfolds—the result of relentless cleanup efforts.
In a historic 2020 expedition, a dedicated crew removed a record-setting 103 metric tonnes of ocean plastic, marking the largest open-ocean cleanup. This monumental feat echoes a commitment to preserving our oceans and signifies the positive impact of human determination.
While manual cleanup has proven effective, technology is on the verge of addressing the remnants left behind. Moreover, there's a transformative shift in how we view recovered plastic waste. Virtu Made leads the charge by turning this waste into treasures, such as the Beaded Collection—a series of bracelets creatively crafted from recycled ocean plastic, offering a stylish reminder of our commitment to sustainability.
