If you try to be ecologically aware, or even if you just appreciate clever, well-designed clothing, then out these ladies Healthy Seas Recycled Fishing Net Black Socks on your sustainability shopping list. These attractive, sophisticated socks are made from a blend of 62% GOTS-certified organic cotton and Econyl yarn, made from ‘ghost’ fishing nets, which are collected from sea beds after being abandoned. Left unchecked, these ghost nets litter the ocean, needlessly trapping and killing marine creatures.
So instead of becoming landfill, the once-hazardous nets now become swimwear, carpet and other textiles, such as these cotton rich Heathy Seas socks that continue the ‘net’ theme — and beautifully — by featuring a pink diamond net pattern on a charcoal leg, with contrasting teal cuffs, heels and toes, manufactured under Fair Wear monitoring, ensuring ethical treatment of workers.
