Fishing nets are most often lost or abandoned at sea, which ravage the marine ecosystem. Their presence in our oceans is called “ghost fishing”. These drifting nets catch fish or other marine species, causing death on their way.
Now, thanks to the Net-Works program, local people can recover and sell their used nets. These nets will also experience a second life in the form of carpet tiles through the company Interface which enjoys a source of completely recycled nylon.
