Discarded Fishing Nets

Ghost fishing nets make up an estimated 10% of plastic in the ocean. Lost or abandoned fishing nets continues to catch marine life, as it is designed to do. This has an undoubted but rarely documented effect on the local ecosystem.

The production process starts by sourcing fishing nets, trawls and ropes from a number of ports, net makers and plastics collectors globally. The materials are sorted, divided into the different types of plastics and colors, shredded, washed, separated and converted into pellets. Our partners in Europe then combine these pellets with post-consumer plastic waste and injection mould the materials to create an end product.

Here are some of the products created by our sister company Project Blu using this recycled material:
