Up-cycled mooring rope

Marlow Ropes has launched a premium sustainable mooring rope made using 100 per cent recycled plastic. Seven-and-half waste plastic bottles are used to make one metre of Marlow’s 16mm Blue Ocean Dockline. It is available pre-spliced in 12mm and 162mm diameters from 6m to 15m long. Jim Mitchell, MD of Marlow Ropes, said: “Virtually every piece of plastic ever made still exists in some shape or form — unless it has been incinerated. So 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.”

From £33.53 (for 12mm pre-spliced Dockline)
