Recycled fishing nets  

How cool is this company? Bureo developed a recycling program in Chile, dubbed “Net Positiva,” which provides collection points where fishermen and other locals can drop off discarded fishing nets that are polluting our oceans. According to Bureo, fishing nets make up 10% of the plastic pollution in the ocean. The Net Positiva program gets the fishing nets, which are hazardous to marine life, out of the sea, while providing financial incentives to local communities to help.

Bureo then recycles the fishing nets into a material that is used to make their products.

On a mission to get plastics out of the ocean, Bureo is backed by the grandaddy of Earth-loving product companies: Patagonia via Tin Shed Ventures.
