What a happy day for us! After only half a year of cooperation we received the first donation from Bracenet about € 3.500!

Bracenet develops fashion bracelets from ghost nets and joined forces with Healthy Seas and its many partners, to work together for cleaner and healthier seas.

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.

With the help of this great donation we can organize more sea clean-ups, for example.

Many thanks to all the Bracenet Supporters!
