Waterhaul's recycled ocean plastic litter pickers were designed as a concept to demonstrate circular economy solutions and to inspire and enable people to take positive action against plastic pollution.
'We developed the idea whilst conducting beach cleans and recovering ghost gear along the Cornish coastline. It didn't make sense to us that non-recyclable virgin plastic was being formed to construct the equipment used by individuals who take direct action against the plastic pollution crisis. Instead, wouldn't beach cleans feel more inspired and hopeful if the equipment was constructed from the very ocean plastic material they were intercepting?' - Waterhaul
Recycled ocean plastic components
The handles, triggers and jaws contain 0% virgin plastics and 100% recycled fishing nets that were collected from end-of-life net amnesty schemes, beach cleans and dive based ghost gear recoveries. By creating equipment to inspire and enable action against plastic pollution, we can multiply the overall positive impact: waste fishing gear is collected and recycled to produce the product itself, but with your help, it can go on to remove much more plastic from the environment.
Do your bit for the ocean.
