“The bag that helps the sea” – Reduce ocean waste just by using it.
Just by using this bag you reduce ocean waste. Our brand collects, sorts and returns ocean waste as recycled products. Our products aim to make it possible for people to take part in the work of achieving SDGs in a way that is fun and easy, through a sense of delight at using the products that makes SDGs feel more personal. The biggest features of our products are material transparency and a fabric traceability guarantee that comes from our unique certification system.
- “Textile Certification Number” – This includes a “DNA” tracer that allows you to test for the presence of Seaqual® Marine Plastic Polymers. All approved fabrics are assigned a Seaqual® Textile Certification Number through which they are managed.
- “GRS – Global Recycle Standard” – GRS is a global certification program that establishes strict standards on finished and intermediate (inputs, materials) recycled products, established in 2008. The Seaqual® Yarn “upcycle marine plastic” eco-yarn used by PORTRUNKS has received this certification. A cute, round drawstring bag. Fits a smartphone and small wallet.
As a fashion brand taking on the issue of ocean pollution, PORTRUNKS is born of efforts done together with the Spanish environmental group, the Sequal Initiative, to collect, sort and manufacture thread from oceanic waste. The company has developed a collection in which all products are based on recycled oceanic materials.
Upon learning that most plastic waste polluting the world’s oceans came from on land, and that such plastic waste was only being recycled at a rate of less than 10%, PORTRUNKS director Tatsuya Yokoi founded the brand as a type of activism that he could do himself. Using PORTRUNKS bags helps take one step towards solving the problem of ocean pollution.
