WHAT IS GHOST GEAR?
Lost or discarded fishing gear AKA 'ghost gear' is the most abundant form of macro-plastic in the ocean, and the problem increases by 640,000 tonnes every year.
These nets are also the most lethal form of plastic to marine life. Lost in the ocean, their function to entangle marine life continues. Constructed from high-quality plastics, these nets keep on catching for over 500 years, unless removed.
Collected from across the coastline of Cornwall. We're also developing schemes to assist preventing gear loss at the source, alongside a port based pilot scheme in Pembrokeshire.
Gear is separated by polymer type, and then recycled through a mechanical process of shredding and washing. The plastic is then extruded into pellets and becomes our raw material.
With our 100% recycled raw material, we injection mould this plastic into purposeful products. This is the stage where we give new value to plastic 'waste'.
EYEWEAR FOR OCEAN ADVENTURES
We utilise the strongest form of plastic in our oceans to produce exceptionally sustainable, recycled eyewear.
Designed that meets the technical demands of adventure, ocean-exposure and UV protection, but also acts as a ‘symbol of change’ for our oceans.
Every pair Waterhaul frames comes with a lifetime warranty, because they are made from nets that would last decades in the ocean.
