Did you know that 12 million tons of plastic are being dumped in our oceans every year? Crazy, right? Komrads strives for a circular future, where we can recycle waste into new usable materials. That is why we partnered with Seaqual Initiative for a better future.
Seaqual Initiative is a community of individuals, organizations and companies working together to help clean our oceans and add value to the waste they recover. Seaqual Initiative works with waste management and recycling industries to transform marine litter into Seaqual® marine plastic.
We at Komrads use this marine plastic to make our OCNS and help reduce the plastic pollution in the worlds waters.
Our OCNS are made of:
- Upper & lining: 100% Recycled Seaqual Yarn.
- Upper patches: Recycled corn leather
- Sole: 100% recycled rubber.
- Laces: recycled cotton & plastic bottles.

Seaqual Initiative has already transformed 200 tons of marine litter into Seaqual® marine plastic. They have also cleaned around 600 tons of waste from our oceans and have collaborated with brands from more than 60 countries. Komrads is proud to be one of those!
