Welcome to the Norwex Movement

First Norwex Seabin Hard at Work in Malta

Seabin Adventure in Malta Kicks Off at Birgu Marina

Our Norwex office in Malta is placing ten Seabins around that island country to help address growing concerns about harmful chemicals, plastic pollution and environmental issues.

 

What Is a Seabin?

This award-winning floating rubbish bin is strategically positioned in “debris problem areas” like marinas, docks, yacht clubs and commercial ports to collect surface rubbish and oils polluting the water. Depending on weather and debris volumes, the Seabin can catch an estimated 1.4 tons of floating debris per year, including microplastics down to 2 millimeters in size.

To learn more about Seabins and what they can do, see our recent blog, Norwex Partners with Seabin for Cleaner Oceans.

Follow our Seabin adventure in Malta at #SeabinMalta to stay informed.

This is awesome. Having visited Malta this year it makes this kind of neat that I know exactly where this is. Great project.

This is so exciting! I can’t wait to see the benefits of these Seabins! This has become more of just a love for products for me and more of a mission to share what we can do to preserve our earth and our health.

I like to see credit where it is due. Kudos to Norwex for getting this going. But it is a pity there is no mention of the 2 Australian surfers who invented the Seabin – Andrew Turton and Pete Ceglinski. One gets the impression Norwex made it.

What a wonderful, innovative invention. We just need to cut down on. Plastic use and convince other countries to do the same. Congratulations to you and another collector of ocean debris, 4Oceans!

I’m so very proud to represent a company that works so hard to be part of the solution!! I love that Norwex is partnering with the Seabin Project for Cleaner Oceans and with Washed Ashore. Rather than focusing on the negative, Norwex forges ahead with the positive! LOVE IT!!

A customer of mine would like to know…(and so do I) Once it is collected, where is it taken? How is it processed?

Christine, thank you for your great question. According to the manufacturer’s (Seabin’s) website: “Each V5 Seabin client has its own waste service provider and its own management plan. We encourage our V5 Seabin clients to diligently recycle what plastics they can. In the near future we aim to offer recycling services for the Seabin marine litter and ensure it is recycled where possible. We are very fond of the concept of circular economy and we would like to have as much of the waste collected by the Seabins valorized and reintroduced into the economy. The more plastic, and other material are reintroduced into the economy, the less goes to landfill, incineration, or in the environment. We need to rethink the design of our goods.” That said, we also reached out to determine the final destination of the debris collected specifically by our Norwex Seabins in Malta. Norwex Global Chief Operating Officer Timothy Zrinzo said, “Currently, once the waste is collected from the Seabins it is sent to the facilities at Wasteserv (https://www.wasteservmalta.com/) according to its designation. Wasteserv is the company… Read more »
