Electrolux turns ocean plastic trash into vacuum cleaners
There are islands of plastic debris the size of Texas floating around in the Pacific and other oceans. Electrolux is going to turn them into vacuum cleaners.
‘Our oceans are filled with plastic waste. Yet on land, there is a shortage of recycled plastic. The supply of sustainable raw material, such as recycled plastic, is crucial for making sustainable appliances, and assisting consumers in making their homes greener. I therefore hope people will join us in raising awareness about the threat plastic poses to marine habitats, and the urgent need for taking better care of the plastic that already exists.’ Hans Stråberg President and CEO, Electrolux
