Plastic is found in the stomachs of 90 percent of seabirds and the rate is growing steadily as global production of plastics increases. Many birds accidentally eat plastic and other marine debris floating in the ocean, mistaking it for food.
Shearwaters chicks are particularly susceptible to plastic ingestion. The adults mistake plastic for food, which they then feed to their chicks. Adults can sometimes regurgitate plastic they’ve swallowed, but chicks are unable to, so it fills up their stomachs and they starve to death.
The rope used to make these bracelets was collected during beach cleanup project in the Hawaii.
Planet Love Life nautical bracelets are handcrafted from recycled marine rope debris. Each piece of salvaged rope is unique with slight variations in color and condition, caused by natural weathering. All bracelets are 100% waterproof. Every bracelet purchased helps to keep our oceans & beaches clean!
