The tools we use for tackling plastic pollution shouldn’t be adding to the problem we’re fighting. We’ve created a folding litter picker with the handle, trigger and jaw components made from 100% recycled polypropylene fishing gear. The jaw, trigger and handle of our litter pickers are made from 100% recycled polypropylene from trawl nets and lines, which is the most common form of ghost gear found on our coastline. Now, with your help, the problem will become part of the solution.

We designed the parts with sufficient thickness to be rugged and strong, enabling us to utilise the degraded and less pristine fishing nets that we find on mass. Unlike for our sunglasses, we don't have to be fussy with which nets we recycle in order to deliver a great product. - Alongside the recycled ocean plastic components, our litter pickers are made with recycled aluminium extruded shafts, stainless steel rivets and 100% recycled PET string.

- Folding hinge design, that allows easy storage of your picker in your backpack, car boot or beach bag, enabling positive action wherever your adventures take you.

- Horned magnetic end, for easily hooking plastic bags, buried fishing line or facemasks and easily picking up small metal items such as bottle tops.

- Simple ergonomic, lightweight and solidly constructed design, made in the UK. Not only are you enabling your own beach cleaning capabilities, but you are also directly enabling the expansion of our ghost gear recovery and recycling efforts and creating a demand for plastic to be removed from the ocean.

You'll also be supporting the delivery of PlaNET Action, our education program. We deliver workshops across the UK, with our portable ocean plastic recycling machines and our marine biologist educators deployed to engage and inspire the next-generation in the marine environment and the plastic pollution issue.

We developed the idea whilst conducting beach cleans and recovering ghost gear along the Cornish coastline.

It didn’t make sense to us that the equipment used by individuals who take direct action against the plastic pollution crisis contained non-recyclable virgin plastic. Instead, wouldn’t beach cleans feel more inspired and hopeful if the equipment was constructed from the very ocean plastic material they were intercepting?
