A healthier marine environment and stronger communities
By using Akulon Repurposed in its SeaCleaner Watch, the startup is not only raising awareness of ocean pollution, Gyre Watch is supporting local fishermen and donating 5% of its turnover to The Ocean Cleanup. Approximately 2,000 tons of fishing nets are collected by DSM’s supplier every year in India, and more than 300 employees work in the recycling value chain. This creates employment opportunities for the nearby communities, thus creating a positive social impact.
