07 February 2017

Last year’s results are published and they look very encouraging! We created many new and valuable partnerships, which helped us collecting much bigger amount of nets with the help of divers and fishermen.

Also, we had exciting new activities with the involvement of schools. Together with our partners, we developed education material and interactive games for primary schools in order to raise awareness about the protection of the seas and marine litter:

A Fashion Design Contest and Exhibition has been implemented with creative and dedicated students from a fashion design school in Greece, who became ambassadors of sustainable fashion:

A huge thank you to all of our partners and supporters who made this possible! Those 152 tons of fishnets we sent to the recycling plant in 2016, would have otherwise ended up in a landfill or incineration or even worse, continued ghostfishing for many more years, killing large numbers of marine animals.

We are very delighted about it and very much motivated to make 2017 even better! Please stay with us for exciting updates throughout this year and follow us on Facebook and Twitter!
