Ghost nets represent fishing nets that have been forsaken, misplaced, or abandoned in the ocean. This form of marine debris is accountable for ensnaring and fatally harming a substantial array of marine creatures, as well as suffocating coral reefs, causing coastal devastation, and inflicting harm on boats.
Our efforts revolve around the preservation of natural habitats through the retrieval of ghost nets from the oceans. Following extraction, these nets undergo meticulous cleaning, drying, and bundling, eventually transforming into leashes.
Additionally, we repurpose denim industry offcuts to envelop the ghost nets, providing an outer layer of protection before being adorned with yarn. This proactive approach mitigates the adverse environmental effects typically linked with the textile industry’s waste.
