MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, April 10, 2023 Miami, Florida -SeaSweepersLLC., an ocean conservation company, announced today that they are launching a limited-time-only clothing line made from upcycled ghost nets. The clothing line will be released on April 15th, and 100% of the profits from the sale will be used to fund the construction of North America's first marine plastics recycling center in Florida. SeaSweepers LLC., is headed by CEO and Founder Naveen Sydney, and COO and Co-Founder Taryn Larock, who joined together to create SeaSweepers from a mutual vision about preserving the oceans and marine life.
Ghost nets, also known as abandoned, lost or otherwise discarded fishing gear (ALDFG), are a significant contributor to plastic pollution in the ocean. It is estimated that 640,000 tons of ghost nets are added to the ocean each year, entangling and killing marine life and contributing to the micro plastics crisis. Removing these ghost nets from the ocean is a challenging task, and traditional recycling methods have limited success in repurposing them.
SeaSweepers understands the severity of the issue and is committed to finding solutions to preserve the oceans and marine life. The company's approach is to provide the means for upcycle ghost nets and ocean plastics into new products and the platform for organizations to sell these products in a sustainable market, thereby creating a circular economy that reduces and prevents plastic waste in the ocean.
"We are proud to kickoff with the launch our upcycled clothing line and to be able to contribute to the preservation of the ocean. This limited edition, upcycled fishing net collection is a fantastic opportunity for people to wear something very meaningful and is designer fashion and looks incredible. It's truly a win - win, as 100% of all profits will go directly towards moving our marine plastics recycling center forward." said Naveen Sydney, CEO of SeaSweepers LLC. "Our goal is to create awareness about the dangers of ghost nets and plastic pollution and provide a solution to continue to upcycle them into something new and useful."
Designed in collaboration with the luxury sustainable clothing brand Sage Larock Swimwear, the upcycled ghost nets clothing line is certified to be free of over 100 toxic chemicals typically found in traditional polyester and uses low-impact dyes for environment and customer safety. The products are stylish, eco-friendly, and sustainable, making them a great choice for anyone who loves fashion and cares about the environment by helping to reduce plastic pollution from the ocean.
The profits from the clothing line will be used to fund the construction of North America's first marine plastics recycling center in Florida. The plant will use state-of-the-art technology to upcycle ghost nets and ocean plastics into new products, such as clothing, furniture, home decor, and even building materials.
"We want to make a difference in the world and create a sustainable future for everyone. We believe that by upcycling ghost nets and removing ocean plastic pollution, we can make a significant impact on the environment. Beyond this, we believe we can make a very important contribution to the B2B recycled plastic market which will be crucial for the future of long-term conservation and a sustainable global economy." said Taryn Larock, who has already been working in the marine and wildlife conservation space for over 15 years.
