Sustainable and stylish!
Upcycling, also known as ‘creative reuse’, is the process of transforming waste-materials, into new products of greater quality, often with an artistic and environmental value. The environmental benefits of upcycling are mammoth, aside from minimizing the volume of discarded materials and waste being sent to landfill each year, it also reduces the need for production using new or raw materials which means a reduction in air pollution, water pollution, greenhouse gas emissions and often a conservation of global resources.
In case of the Fishing4Ghosts-products, we mainly repurpose the discarded ropes that were used to recover the seafood traps, as well as cords that were used to close the gillnets while fishing. It’s a time-consuming process to recover the cords and ropes, clean them and prepare them to produce the products – but it’s worth it, of course!
Durable Design.The fishing gear is made out of Nylon, constructed for harsh conditions in the ocean and very durable. The customized closures we use are high quality stainless steel, non-corrosive. Therefore, we can ensure a long life of the products. To keep it short, all the properties of the fishing gear that are so devastation for our oceans (in case of loss), are really contributing to the quality standard of our products.
