Preserving the natural beauty of the Galapagos Islands
Around 1000 km off the coast of Ecuador lie the Galapagos Islands with their incredible biodiversity and large number of species found nowhere else in the world. For generations, the group of islands has been isolated from the outside world. However, now they are home to over 35,000 Ecuadorian residents and a popular tourist destination. It is our responsibility to preserve this unique natural beauty.
Ideal Alambrec Bekaert has been partnering with Chaide y Chaide S.A., one of Ecuador’s largest mattress manufacturers, since March 2022 to contribute to the islands’ circular economy by recycling mattresses when they reach end of life.
The link between our companies lies in the wire we supply and that Chaide transforms into springs and frames that provide support within each mattress.
