Recycled Plastic Fabric Yarn
BIONIC® Transforms Recovered Plastic Into Durable Materials.
BIONIC® is a call to action to clean up the environment and make the global community tougher, more united and more resilient.
The critical ingredient of BIONIC® is recovered plastic. Simply collecting this plastic waste is a tremendous task — but, like our materials, the work of collection is tied to public service and the greater good.
Mission Driven Material Science
BIONIC® engineers fully traceable high-grade textiles and polymers made with recovered plastic.
Our vision/mission is to unite industry leading brands to substantially and measurably reduce ocean plastic.
We believe in materials that break boundaries in all directions. Materials that are stronger, faster, AND more sustainable. Performance is essential, but the environment will not be sacrificed in its name.
We believe in harmony between nature and technology, a balance between the economy and the environment. Our innovations should drive change in the real world as well as the marketplace. Our profits drive progress.
We believe in transparency and full traceability. Our materials lead rich lives before they reach us and we have the stories to prove it. Their sourcing is as important as what we make with them.
We believe that too much potential is wasted. In companies. In societies. In life. Our favorite materials are good at many things. We help them to excel.
We believe in acting locally on an international scale. Global capitalism can benefit a small community without stealing its soul. It just takes work and care and creativity.
We believe great organizations are driven by purpose, not profit, but profits can help the mission.
We believe you can achieve sustainability through materials science. We are BIONIC®.
BIONIC is a mission-driven materials science company built around the belief that performance and sustainability are not mutually exclusive. A producer of textiles, polymers, and other materials made from recovered, recycled, or regenerative sources, BIONIC first made its name manufacturing high-grade yarns and fabrics using rescued marine and coastal plastic that would otherwise have been left to pollute the world’s oceans.
Adopting a deeply holistic approach, BIONIC not only designs and manufactures finished products, but ensures the traceability of their raw materials by building plastic recovery infrastructure along the coastlines of developing nations. This infrastructure serves as a public utility in places that often have little or no municipal waste management, and provides jobs, education, and empowerment opportunities to local communities and environmental organizations.
Founded and headquartered in New York City, the company operates in Central America, North America, and Asia, and has established vertical supply chains worldwide, tracking their product from coastline to commercial shelves. BIONIC entered the market in 2009 with its patented HLX yarn construction, which ensured durability and a refined finish without sacrificing sustainability. Since then, the diversity of the company’s product line has grown alongside its impact.
