Global place maker, Moss, has launched SustainaTex Ocean, made from Seaqual Marine Plastic and recycled polyester for the UK graphics, events and retail display markets.

Initially launched in the US, the introduction of the SustainaTex Ocean into the UK further boosts Moss’s global sustainable practices in the industry, minimising waste and reducing the business’s – and clients’ – carbon footprint.

The new 100 percent post-consumer waste recycled content SustainaTex Ocean fabric is exclusive to Moss and is suited for dye sublimation print, ideal for silicone edged graphic (SEG) applications.

The fabric is made from 62 percent Seaqual Yarn, a traceable material produced from upcycled marine plastic retrieved from oceans, beaches, rivers, and estuaries by the Seaqual Initiative, with the remainder supplied from recycled polyester.

Customer’s choosing SustainaTex Ocean can have some of the most sustainable graphics available on the market, with the material, dye sublimation inks, PVC free fittings and sustainable packaging minimising its environmental impact, according to Moss. In addition, once the event has finished or retail graphics been used, the fabric can be sent back to Moss for re-processing, ensuring a responsible end-of-life for the product.

Michael Green, Moss UK’s managing director, commented, ‘The introduction of SustainaTex Ocean in the UK underlines our unwavering dedication to sustainability. This fabric provides our clients with another high-quality, environmentally friendly option for their graphics and displays. We are place makers, and that means we also want to make our oceans a better place, too. This partnership is the perfect way to help keep our oceans clean and minimise our clients’ environmental impact.’
