Made with RE-Nylon from ghost nets
This accessory is made with the incredibly durable and high-quality RE-nylon from ghost nets. A ghost net is a fishing net that has been lost or abandoned at sea. Such nets continue to trap everything in their path, presenting a major problem for the health of our oceans and marine life.
Ghost nets not only catch fish; they also entangle sea turtles, dolphins and porpoises, birds, sharks, seals and more. These creatures swim into nets, often unable to detect them by sight or sonar. The nets then prevent them from moving freely, cause injuries, and stop mammals and birds rising to the surface for air.
Since hundreds of animals can be caught in a single net, it is clear that this threat is huge. Ghost nets harm coral reefs too, breaking corals, exposing them to disease and even blocking the reefs from the sunlight they need.
Alternatively, they can be recycled to create this amazing RE-nylon, which arrives with you in the form of this conscious, lifesaving and stylish backpack/bag.
