Upcycled Fishing Net Bracelet - Sea Turtles
Our bracelets are handcrafted from recycled marine rope debris collected during beach cleanup projects. Each piece of salvaged rope is unique with slight variations in color and condition, caused by natural weathering. All bracelets are 100% waterproof. Join us in supporting this important cause by helping spread awareness of marine debris and its negative impacts on the environment.
Sea turtles are one of the most affected animals from marine debris and entanglement. Turtles are curious by nature an opportunistic animals. They will investigate pretty much anything floating in the ocean looking for an easy meal. They then become entangled in the rope, as their flippers are easily snared by the rope. The more they struggle, the worse it gets. And they can quickly find themselves unable to swim and unable to reach the surface to breathe.
This rope was collected and donated to us by Sustainable Coastlines Hawaii from the shores of Hawai'i. This wonderful volunteer based organization is decided to take keeping our beaches clean while making the work fun. What we’ve learned along the way is that cleanups can only do so much. We now utilize our cleanups to inspire better consumer behaviors and continued coastal stewardship through cleanups, education, social media, and more.
Each bracelet purchased helps keep our oceans clean & represents the life of a marine animal saved from entanglement.
