With tons of fishing equipment being dumped in the ocean each year, and nylon nets accounting for 10 percent of the ocean’s plastic pollution, a pair of entrepreneurs had an ingenious idea.
They are converting dangerous old nets that can kill marine mammals, into pellets. And then, using those pellets to make skateboards. In doing so, they are both preserving marine life and upping the fun.
