ROCKAY REMOVES PLASTIC FROM THE OCEAN AND RIVERS THROUGH OUR PARTNERSHIP WITH RESEA PROJECT
WHY WE DO IT
Rockay was built for the everyday athlete, and as a fast-growing community, we must consider our impact. Take a sport like running for example, the carbon footprint can be deceptive, it appears to be an inherently green activity, but plastic waste is a real issue. Race day means water bottles, goodie bags and finisher tees. There’s also an endless amount of nutrition which inevitably comes wrapped in plastic.
In partnership with ReSea Project, Rockay are empowering our athletes to be part of making a difference against plastic polluting our oceans. By doing so we can feel better about the environment we use as our daily training ground. There’s always more to do, but Rockay wants to turn the tide against plastic waste. We are one step closer to plastic-free oceans and ultimately a healthier planet
We take a holistic approach to all that we do from the initiatives we support to how we deliver our products across the globe. Our packaging has been completely overhauled - our polybags are made from plant-based materials and are fully biodegradable, even the inks we use are natural. Reducing the amount of packaging has been key – using less paper and targeting the complete removal of cardboard boxes from deliveries. We intend to lower our C02 impact and make it easier for our customers to recycle.
Sustainable Performance, Zero Compromise
Our mission is to embrace our responsibility in producing ground breaking products, with eco-conscious materials and empowering athletes to perform sustainably. Ingenious fabrics, recycled and sustainable where possible are used in our products, with our supply-chains selected and scrutinized on their eco-merits. No stone is left unturned in our mission for sustainable performance with zero compromises.
TCERTIFIED CLEANUP PROCESS
The cleanup process of Resea Project is certified by the independent third party DNV. The certification of the cleanup process ensures the highest level of traceability, meaning that the reclaimed plastic from oceans and rivers can be traced all the way back to the location where it was recovered.
