Green Week 2014: Waste is too valuable to be wasted

04 June 2014

We are at the Green Week this week, which theme – Circular Economy; saving resources, creating jobs – perfectly matches our Healthy Seas mission.

During the opening session on Tuesday 3 June, EU Commissioner for Environment Janez Potocnik strongly pointed out that the “circular economy will be the great innovation challenge for the next decade”. He also stressed that “for moving to a circular economy we need governments, businesses and investors on board” because “waste is too valuable to be wasted”.

Our Healthy Seas stand appears to be very popular. Many people visit us to make their selfie or to admire the great products we create from regenerated fishnets. Today we had a special guest. Commissioner Potocnik visited the Healthy Seas stand to discover all about our journey from waste to wear. He showed great interest and was offered a unique Healthy Seas t-shirt.

If you are at the Green Week as well this week, you are very much invited to visit our stand, it will blow your socks off. Luckily, you can win a new pair at our stand. Unique recycled Healthy Seas socks! We are present during the full Week.
