Our Sponsor: ECOALF

ECOALF is a fashion brand that is truly sustainable. Created by Javier Goyeneche in 2009:

"After the birth of my sons, Alfredo and Alvaro - ECOALF is named after them - , I was reflecting upon the world we would leave to the next generation and my frustration with the excessive use of the world’s natural resources.

By integrating breakthrough technology ECOALF create clothing and accessories made entirely from recycled materials…without actually looking like it.” ECOALF represents the fabrics for the future generations.

The History of the ECOALF Foundation is the story of Upcycling the Oceans, an unprecedented global adventure born in the Mediterranean Sea in 2015. The aim is to clean the oceans of marine waste with the help of the fishing industry and to give a second life to plastic waste through recycling and closing the loop. Currently, the ECOALF Foundation together with ECOEMBES and Upcycling the Oceans Thailand, with the support of PTT Global Chemical and the Thai government, is coordinating the Upcycling the Oceans project in Spain and is working on its implementation in other parts of the world. It also collaborates on other projects in the fields of waste management, environmental awareness or research and development with institutions with which it shares common values and objectives. Today we are present in 42 ports collaborating with over 3000 fishermen and taking out more than 500 tons of waste from the bottom of the ocean. Our mission is to continue to replicate this across the rest of the Mediterranean Sea starting in Greece, Italy…

It is not only about upcycling the oceans, but also about fighting on other fronts, especially in the field of prevention through environmental education. The foundation works to increase awareness on the opportunity that the recycling industry represents through presentations to various target groups.
