Last year, DuraOcean® triumphed over stiff competition to win the coveted Best New Product award at its industry launch event – SOLEX 2019, where judges described the innovative ocean plastic range as a “fantastic concept” and “the clear winner by miles”, pointing out that DuraOcean® was heading to market at a time when plastic waste is at the top of the consumer agenda. Here’s to hoping this winning streak can be continued!
