Marlow Ropes’ Blue Ocean Dockline is manufactured using yarn made from 100% recycled plastic bottles.

The line is available pre-spliced in 12mm and 16mm diameters from 6m to 15m long and is exclusive to Marlow’s mooring series.

“Virtually every piece of plastic ever made still exists in some shape or form — unless it's been incinerated,” said Jim Mitchell, Marlow Ropes MD. “Re-using something as available as plastic water bottles curbs discards, reduces toxic emissions from incinerators, diverts waste from landfills and of course, requires fewer resources overall to be made.”

Energy

Seven and half waste plastic bottles are used to make one metre of the new line; the production process uses 60% less energy and there is a 32% CO2 emissions reduction.

“Like many progressive organisations, we are extremely conscious of our environmental impact and ensure that our manufacturing and waste management systems are in line with our environmental policy,” added Jim. “All our manufacturing waste yarn is recycled where it can be and this includes HMPE, polyester, nylon and aramid fibres.”

The new line is woven at Marlow Ropes’ manufacturing site in Sussex.
