New eco Ryno dining chair featuring 50% recycled content derived from fishing nets and gear.
Abandoned or lost fishing nets, ropes and other fishing equipment account for around 10% of the plastics that end up in our oceans.
“Ghost nets” like these can be harmful to sea life, with fish, birds, crabs and other species becoming tangled in them and attracting larger animals like dolphins and whales which can also become trapped. They can also cause damage to seabed and coral reefs by becoming snagged and shading them from sunlight. When fishing nets are no longer required, they are collected and turned into recycled polymer granules. This recycling process prevents the nets reaching our oceans and harming sea life and reduces the carbon footprint of products made using the recycled polymer.
