British Marine member Marlow Ropes, the Leisure Marine rope manufacturer announces the introduction of their latest ‘technically better’ environmentally conscious innovation; the Blue Ocean Dockline made using 100% recycled waste plastic bottles.

Every day more than 16 million plastic bottles end up in a landfill in the UK alone, and this latest innovation from the UK rope manufacturer uses their engineering expertise to make an environmental difference; through the development of a high-quality premium, Dockline rope made using 100% recycled plastic bottle yarn.

Reusing, re-purposing and recycling are key areas of Marlow’s environmental policy and this latest product development aims to highlight the importance of these actions to help reduce marine plastic pollution. As a manufacturing company within the marine industry, Marlow knows only too well about the impact that plastic materials can have on the environment and ensures that their impact is kept to a minimum, as managing director Jon Mitchell explains:

“Like many progressive organizations, we are extremely conscious of our environmental impact and ensure that both our manufacturing and waste management systems are in line with our environmental policy which reinforces our recycle, reuse and repurpose education mission.

The Blue Ocean Dockline will be exclusive to Marlow’s Mooring Series and made available pre-spliced in 12-16mm diameters in lengths from 6m to 15m through our UK stockist and distributor network. The unique construction offers the same popular attributes available with Marlow’s other mooring products including good abrasion resistance and shock absorption with soft and supple flexibility and zero strength loss or shrinkage.
