Latest data about our results

19 February 2018

We are proud to present our results of the last five years! To date Healthy Seas collected 375 tons, that’s 826.000 pounds of nets and lost fishing gear with the help of divers and fishermen. Many marine animals have been rescued and many cases of trapped animals we have prevented. This amount of nets equals the weight of two blue whales, the largest animal ever to have lived on Earth.

Many thanks to all of our partners, sponsors, supporters and volunteers who made it happen!

There are several important initiatives to clean up and safeguard the seas. The nets that are collected as part of the Healthy Seas initiative are not dumped into landfills or burned in waste processing facilities. Instead, they are regenerated into ECONYL® yarn, in order to create high-quality products what the public, the consumers can recognize and choose. And with their choice of buying something good, they support a good cause and this way more sea clean-ups can be organized. Sustainability is the focus, from both the environmental and economic point of view. The strength of Healthy Seas lies in its partnership of NGOs and businesses working towards the same aim: a better planet and healthier seas, while learning-by-doing and being open to new partners and creative ideas.
