Plastics used in ships are occasionally dumped at ocean, or even if they are collected at ports, all of them are incinerated. YGPA crack down on plastic dumping at ocean and collect waste plastics from ships. And the plastics are processed into recycled polyester yarn. Since this yarn is made of ocean bound plastic, apparel makers rush to buy the yarn and make clothes with it. Through this project, we protect the environment and create added values and jobs in the process of recycling plastics.
