Marlow Ropes, officially announced the launch of their third Blue Ocean® innovation to round up their trilogy of eco-conscious Arb lines for 2020. The ‘Technically Better’ rope brand are no strangers to sourcing sustainably produced fibres, and are the first in the arboriculture and forestry industry to release ropes made from recycled waste plastic bottles.

Blue Ocean® Boa is the newest addition to the eco-conscious range, joining the Blue Ocean® Raptor lowering line and Blue Ocean® Gecko climbing rope which were released earlier this year.

The global Arb industry will be pleased to hear that this sustainable accessory cord maintains the same  CE Certified  attributes and anti-kink construction making it ideal for use as a prussik and in other friction hitches. The new hardwearing 16 plait cover is now made from GRS certified Blue Ocean® yarn, manufactured from waste recycled plastic bottles.

The Blue Ocean® brand and its sustainably manufactured product line demonstrates Marlow’s commitment to eco-conscious manufacturing with a focus on sourcing sustainable and bio-based materials, reducing waste and lowering their carbon footprint through various company-wide initiatives.


Richard Edge, Sales Director at Marlow Ropes, comments:

“Our sustainability and environmental mission is very important to us, and goes hand-in-hand with our commitment to producing high quality rope products for the Arb industry. Since releasing the Blue Ocean®   range earlier this year, we have received a lot of positive feedback, demonstrating that this is also very important to our customers and end users.  It is an exciting time for Marlow’s manufacturing and innovation and we will be looking further at how we can continue to make our products environmentally responsible.”
