Bracenet – sustainable bracelets made of old fishing nets
It’s no secret that the oceans are drowning in plastic waste. The North Pacific plastic vortex alone spans four and a half times the size of Germany, with 46% of it consisting of old, lost, or intentionally dumped fishing nets. Every year, up to one million tons of these so-called ‘ghost nets’ end up in our oceans, and they never stop catching fish, killing countless marine animals.
How does it work?
Bracenet is putting an end to abandoned fishing nets, known as ghost nets, by removing them from the world’s oceans! They are collaborating with Healthy Seas, Ghost Diving, and Nofir on this mission. Healthy Seas navigates salvage trips with Ghost Diving’s 250 specially trained volunteer divers* worldwide. They free ghost nets from wrecks and reefs at depths of up to 164 feet. Back on land, Nofir cleans the nets in an environmentally friendly way using only water and collects discarded nets from fisheries to prevent them from ending up in the ocean in the first place.
The nets then arrive at the Bracenet Hamburg factory. They lovingly and elaborately process the nets by hand to upcycle them into new products, such as bracelets (the ‘Bracenets’), key chains, dog leashes, and much more.
These products are from and for the ocean. Bracenet regularly donates to marine conservation, including Healthy Seas and Ghost Diving – they have given over €220,000 so far – to fund further salvage missions and awareness work. They also collaborate with several other NGOs to support marine protection.
Together with Bracenet, everyone can make their own contribution to protecting our oceans. SAVE THE SEAS. WEAR A NET.
