What makes this product OceanPositive?

REDUCE & RE-USE

Whilst disposable masks are a necessity for some, a reusable mask is a great option in order to reduce the amount of raw materials used and single-use products ending up in land fill, or worse, in the ocean. OceanPositive masks (minus the filter) can be machine washed and reused indefinitely.

RECYCLE

These face masks are made with ECONYL® 100% regenerated Nylon, a significant percentage of which comes from fishing nets recovered from the sea. These “Ghost Nets” amount to over 600,000 tonnes of lost gear every year. The main hazard is to marine life – from invertebrates to large marine mammals. They continue to fish, long after they have been abandoned, and account for the loss of many lives. The netting, very slow to degrade, scrubs coral, creating a desolate seascape where they are dragged over the reef by shifting currents.

Now, all over the world, dive teams are removing these ghost nets from the wrecks and reefs, often at great depths, and bringing them up to the surface where they can be recycled. ECONYL® yarn is made by Aquafil – an Italian company which has developed an ingenious process to recycle Nylon fishing nets (and other Nylon waste) back into first grade quality Nylon yarn
