Recycled nylon fishing net material

 

Categories: ,

Bureo recycles fishing nets into a material that is used to make their products. The company’s founders created 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 the ocean.

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 is backed by the grandaddy of eco-friendly product companies: Patagonia.
