Ford Bronco Sport Becomes First Vehicle To Feature Parts Made of 100% Recycled Ocean Plastic  

Over the course of one full year, 13 million metric tons of plastic ends up in the oceans on Earth. This amount is growing more and more as time goes on, with 46,000 pieces of plastic existing in each square mile of ocean. Ford is striving to help reduce the amount of plastic in our oceans by using 100 percent recycled ocean plastic in the construction of their vehicles. The latest version of the Ford Bronco has harness clips that have been made with this plastic. The plastic has been collected from the Indian Ocean with the help of the company DSM Engineering.

Ford is the first vehicle manufacturer to utilize recycled ocean plastic in the automotive industry. They're no stranger to the process of being eco-conscious. They utilized recycled water bottle plastic to construct certain parts in the 2020 Ford Escape. Hellermann Tyton is the company working with Ford to mold these parts.

Ford has expressed their interest to continue on this path of reducing plastic in the ocean while reducing their own carbon footprint. They hope to use recycled materials in the construction of other Ford parts, and they are changing their factory designs to reduce emissions.
