THE WORLD'S FIRST HAIR BRUSH MADE OF FISHING NET
Did you know that if we all continue exactly as we do now, then by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than there will be fish?
WHY FISHING NET IS A PROBLEM
There are about 640,000 tons of abandoned fishing equipment in the world's oceans.
So that's a lot! One of the big culprits is abandoned fishing nets, so-called 'ghost nets'. The reason why abandoned nets are called ‘ghost nets’ is because they keep catching fish and other sea creatures even though no one comes and empties them. As fishing nets are often made of plastic, they can remain on the seabed for many years, where they can be harmful to both the environment and wildlife.
