Plastic recycling demos on Falmouth quay were a huge success. Recycling fishing nets into eco plant pots is what we do so we decided to demo the process for all to see. We were invited to the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival this summer to do recycled plastic demos by Clean Ocean Sailing. We got to show off our recycled ocean plastic plant pots and make them on the quayside in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK.
‘Clean Ocean Sailing’ clean our coasts sustainably under sail and do outreach programs around Cornwall. With 65 000 visitors, it was great to finally get our eco pots in front of people and get feedback on our products! We did a workshop demonstrating how we collect abandoned ocean waste, clean, process, and shred the material. I made my ocean plastic plant pots by hand using the injection machine, and moulds LIVE on the quayside for thousands of ocean lovers and pirates.
