Diving trip with partner Bracenet at the North Sea

Ghostfishing & Bracenet
10 August 2017

Our partner Bracenet joined us at the North Sea diving trip last weekend, 6 August, and helped to recover some nasty ghost nets. Many thanks for everyone involved! In about 4 weeks there will be new Bracenets available for you in the online shop at www.bracenet.net. Stay tuned!

The unique wristbands are made of the waste fishing nets that are collected by Healthy Seas and Ghost Fishing. The nets are cleaned and sorted by Nofir and then Bracenet manually produces bracelets – a stylish statement for the protection of the seas and oceans. And this is not just a symbolic gesture, because 10% of the proceeds from each wristband sold goes to support the cause of Healthy Seas while providing a showcase for circular economy that waste is too valuable to be wasted.
