Oceans are the heart of our planet. They cover more than 75% of the earth’s surface and produce more than 50% of the oxygen that is emitted into the atmosphere. In addition, they are home to a large part of the biodiversity that inhabits the Earth.
Plastic pollution in seas and oceans is one of the planet’s greatest threats and an essential focus in the fight against climate change.
The alliance with Climatetrade is a strategic bet by both entities to explore together a new rising market that is the plastic footprint.
“Our objective with this alliance is that companies and entities take responsibility for their plastic pollution, in the same way that they are already being responsible for their CO2 emissions.”
Gravity Wave proposes an environmental solution and use of the traditional fishing infrastructure to generate a positive impact in the Mediterranean Sea, in addition to facilitating companies to get involved in removing plastic from the sea, promoting SDG 14 and achieving a circular economy model respectful with the marine ecosystems.
In addition, that plastic removed is recycled and transformed into value products 100% recycled made from plastic from the sea in Valencia, enhancing a sustainable, local and ethical production. They are currently developing office furniture, street furniture and consumer products such as mobile stands.
