Racing to sustainability: RACEMARK becomes first company from automotive industry to partner with Healthy Seas

18 February 2019

We are very proud to welcome RACEMARK on board Healthy Seas! Our partnership constitutes a new milestone for our environmental initiative since RACEMARK is the first company from the automotive industry to join us and effectively help our sustainability message be heard (and felt) by this new demographic.

RACEMARK is the producer of the world’s finest automotive floor mats made with recycled fishing nets we collected from the seas. Thanks to Aquafil, the nets are regenerated into the high-quality ECONYL® yarn used for the production of brand-new products such as RACEMARK’s automotive mats.

“RACEMARK’s vision is to become the global leader in sustainable automotive floor protection by 2023. We aim to develop and sell products that create no waste and require no new material resources because they can be recovered at the end of their useful life and endlessly upcycled, recycled or regenerated. This is a big goal, but we believe that step by step we can achieve it by working together with our suppliers and customers. We also strive to elevate awareness of environmental threats related to our industry such as products being made which have a shorter useful life cycle than their expected decomposition lifecycle. To be successful in building a more sustainable future, we need knowledgeable and committed partnerships. This is why we are proud to become a partner of Healthy Seas.” Cannon Bailey, President, Racemark

Healthy Seas is an open initiative which is developed using the learning-by-doing approach. We are open to creative ideas and new partners!
