I suppose an appropriate way of starting this would be to say - climate change scares me. I have a constant low-level stress in my mind, some might call this eco-anxiety, about just how bad things are. Depending on the day, I can flit between feelings of helplessness and almost despair to optimism and empowerment. Even still, so much about climate change feels out of my control. How can I, a regular individual working a 9-5, make any difference?
Handmade ghost fishing gear products
Salvaged from the shore. Created for conservation.
From harming marine wildlife to helping it.
An alternative purpose for discarded ghost fishing gear.
Ghost fishing is responsible for the deaths of hundreds of thousands of marine animals every year. And because modern fishing equipment is made from plastic, these nets and ropes remain active for years after entering the ocean, entangling anything in their path.
We believe that small actions can have big impacts, and so we’re on a mission to try and make our waters safer for the amazing animals that live there. We remove ghost fishing gear from our local coastline and turn it into handmade products, helping to close the loop on this deadly waste. And with each sale, we donate 75% of our profits to marine conservation projects.
Your ghost gear product is your stand for cleaner, safer oceans.
We donate 75% of our profits to projects on the frontline of marine conservation. Projects working to save marine life from extinction and fighting for a brighter future.

Water has value. We see it with expensive sea front properties, with sought-after beachside holidays, and with thriving coastal towns. But most of all we feel it.
Why is it as land-roaming humans we feel so connected to the water? The answer is much deeper than its luxury status, in fact, science shows it’s deep into our very beings.
People power works, but unless this is channelled into the right avenues are we simply trying to mop up a constant flow of plastic?
