Recycling Fishing Gear with Erin Adams of "Net Your Problem" | Sea Change
Reeling in a big problem and doping good old nets.
Reducing ocean plastic pollution -- especially discarded fishing nets -- requires innovation, drive, dedication, and collaboration. On this episode, Jenna sits down with Erin Adams, NE Division Coordinator for Net Your Problem, a new company working worldwide to recycle fishing gear into everyday products like sunglasses, kayaks, and picnic tables. Erin has worked alongside fishermen for years and is focused on bringing a net recycling service to Maine and other NE states. Jenna and Erin explore how the company tackles and recycles discarded trawl gear, the outreach to the fishing community, and how recycled gear can replace virgin plastics and promote sustainability. Join them to learn about Net Your Problem's projects, their vision for the future, and ways you can get involved. There is a better way and you can always find it on the Sea Change Podcast.
