Discarded fishing nets

Ghost nets are among the greatest killers in our oceans. The nets tend to congregate, driven by wind and currents. Fishing nets are made of synthetic materials, which decay slowly and can drift for years. Many of them end up caught on a reef, nets do not only catch fish, turtles, crustaceans, birds or marine mammals, they also destroy hard and soft corals, wiping out complete ecosystems while swaying in the current. Removing them is time-consuming and costly.

235 GRAMS OF FISHING NETS

Fishing nets are made by the world’s best Nylon quality. Fishermen change their nets every 4-6 years. They are collected in several harbours and carefully selected based on the quality that we need. The transformation process of using recovered fishing nets to make new fabrics requires half of the steps versus a conventional chemical process. As a result significant savings in water, energy and CO2 emissions.
