Exploring ways to improve our Plastic Karma: Electrolux’s Vac from the Sea

Vac from the Sea – Plastic parts of these vacuum cleaners below were made from plastic debris harvested from the Pacific, Indian and Atlantic Oceans and the Mediterranean, Baltic and North Seas.

“The vacuum cleaners embody the plastic paradox: oceans are full of plastic waste, yet on land there is a shortage of recycled plastic for producing sustainable vacuum cleaners. Electrolux makes Green Range vacuum cleaners from 70% recycled plastic, but wants to reach 100%.”
