Abandoned, lost or discarded fishing nets in the ocean are a huge problem. Fishing nets make up nearly half of the ocean pollution in the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. Raising awareness of this ocean pollution challenge is something Bernard Werk, a Dutch entrepreneur, set out to do when creating the startup Gyre and the SeaCleaner Watch. During this podcast, he discusses what inspired him to create the watch; the startup’s values; why it was a must to use a recycled material; and why Akulon® RePurposed was the material of choice for Gyre.
