People across the world are trying to save the planet, and the latest innovative recycling effort comes from these fishermen who are working to give discarded fishing nets a new life as surfboards! 🏄♂️🏄♀️🌎
Born out of a shared passion for a cleaner environment and a circular economy, DSM, a nutrition and sustainable living corporation, and Thailand-based water sports company, Starboard, are using the resin from discarded nylon-based fishing nets, which are know for their sustainable profile as well as their performance.
After they remove the discarded nets from the water, they clean, granulate and transport them to their facilities in Pune, India. There, the deconstructed nets will undergo a strict quality check before being manufactured into eco-friendly surfboards!
In addition to addressing environmental concerns, the collection, sorting, cleaning and processing of discarded fishing nets creates sustainable livelihoods for several local communities in India.
