Interesting look at upcycled products made from ocean plastic


Recommended Posts

Thought this was a pretty cool look at things being made from ocean plastic refuse.

Chipolo is in the hot seat with the impending release of Apple Tags. They've been sparring with Tile for years in the "tracker" market and will soon have the heftiest of gorillas breathing down their necks. 

That's why it's nice to see them differentiating early by releasing environmentally-friendly Bluetooth-enabled finders. The aptly-named Chipolo Ocean edition is made from reclaimed fishing nets either recovered in shallow waters or intercepted at the docks before fishermen dump their old nets in the ocean. 

 

Though it's a little bit unfair to just put out there that fishermen are dumping old nets in the ocean as a habit, no?
