Triwa trawls the ocean for 20,000 plastic bottles it is recycling into watches

Sweden’s Triwa is following up on its Time for Oceans range of watches made completely from recycled ocean plastic with a second capsule collection called Time for Oceans Arctic comprising two watches that highlight the global spread of ocean plastic.

There are two Arctic watches in the Arctic that both take inspiration from the dramatic landscapes and oceans surrounding Iceland.

Triwa’s first Time for Oceans collection, launched in April this year, has helped to recycle the equivalent of 10,000 PET bottles from the sea.

With the new Arctic collection Triwa’s goal is to spread awareness for a broader cleanup and recycle another 10,000 plastic bottles over the next six months.

“With our Time for Oceans collections, we want to spread awareness about our oceans critical health and be part of the solution. We also see customers buying a Time for Oceans watch as ambassadors for the cause. Where the watch itself becomes a statement piece and a story for your wrist,” says Ludvig Scheja, Creative Director at Triwa.

Time for Oceans Arctic watches are made from 100% recycled ocean plastic produced by #tide Ocean Material in Switzerland.

The ocean waste is transformed into grains with the help of solar energy  and has then been remoulded into the watches.

There are two colors: a black that Triwa calls Octopus and a beige it names Sand.

They go on sale on November 11 for $129.
