Vac from the Sea 5During the summer of 2010, environmental organizations around the world collected marine debris from the oceans and sent to home appliance maker Electrolux. From this plastic, unique concept vacuum cleaners — Vacs from the Sea — were molded. Each model is made from debris collected from a specific sea. The Vacs are now being put on display to raise awareness around the plastic issue.

Each of the five unique vacuum  cleaners represents the ocean from which the plastic originates. All the models are fully functional and have been built using the same core structure (chassis, engine, and bag compartment) as the new Electrolux Ultra One Green-model. The plastic debris has been collected in partnership with organizations and people that already are engaged in the issue, for example research organization B.E.A.C.H. on Hawaii, Blue View Divers in Thailand and Surfrider Foundation in France. 

Electrolux Vac Sea

The vacuum cleaners embody the plastic paradox: oceans are full of plastic waste, yet on land there is a shortage of recycled plastic for producing sustainable vacuum cleaners. Electrolux makes Green Range vacuum cleaners from 70% recycled plastic, but wants to reach 100%.
