Members of Parliament in the UK wore Healthy Seas socks this week in order to show support for World Animal Protection’s Sea Change campaign. By posting ‘footsies’ showing their Healthy Seas socks in Twitter, they publicly endorsed the campaign.

Jointly aiming to reduce the amount of lost and discarded fishing gear that harms and entangles millions of animals, our partner WAP asked MPs to support the move to achieve safer, cleaner oceans by raising awareness of innovative solutions such as socks from recycled fishing gear on social media.

Alyx Elliott, Campaign Manager at World Animal Protection said, “We are delighted that the MP’s have shown their support for the Sea Change campaign by wearing Healthy Seas socks made partly from recycled fishing gear . We hope that this support will help urge the UK Government to quantify the scale of the problem of ghost fishing gear in UK waters. For too long, the sea has been treated as a convenient expanse into which rubbish can be effectively lost. Ghost gear has devastating impacts on our animals, our environment and our economy. We are urging people to act now before it is too late.”
