Ternua and its German clients have raised €5,000 for “Plastic Free: Mountain to Sea,” a project to collect waste plastic from 3,000 kilometers of beaches and mountainous land. The project was initiated last year by the European Outdoor Conservation Association (Eoca), of which the outdoor-apparel brand has been a member since 2014. It is slated to run through 2021. By the end of the project, Eoca expects to have collected the equivalent in volume of 500 Olympic pools. To raise the money, Ternua’s German clients have been selling backpacks that it designed for the occasion. Elsewhere, Ternua is collaborating with Mater, a wooden tuna ship of Basque provenance that has been salvaged and converted into an “ecoactive museum ship.” Mater is the most recent winner of funding from Eoca for its “Jaizkibel Ulia Clean Up,” which seeks to collect plastic from the Guipuzcoana Coast in Spain’s Basque Country. Founded about a decade ago, Eoca is a non-profit association of about 130 companies in the outdoor industry. It has funded projects in 39 countries.
