According to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO), approximately 10% of all marine debris is composed of derelict fishing nets. In response to this environmental challenge, our company has forged a partnership with ReTraze, an organization dedicated to sustainable practices. ReTraze collaborates with small businesses, fishermen, and NGOs to collect discarded fishing nets and transform them into 100% recycled PE.
Since 2016, ReTraze has been actively involved in collecting these abandoned fishing nets. Through years of meticulous research and continuous improvements, they have established a vertical supply chain that effectively converts discarded fishing nets into 100% recycled PE ReTraze fishing net panels.
The recycling process employed by ReTraze involves physical methods, including sorting, cutting, washing, melting, chipping, extrusion, and precision cutting. Through their efforts, they not only reduce waste, but also create a product that stands testament to the potential of responsible recycling.
From 2024 productions, we proudly introduced recycled visors on all Atlantis collection’s items.
