Laysan Albatross Bracelet


Regular price $ 20.00

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.

The problem is intensified in Laysan albatrosses because of the way they catch fish, squid and other seafood: by skimming the surface of the water with their beak. Along the way, they accidentally pick up a lot of floating plastic, which they then feed to their chicks. Adults can 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 & Florida. The Albatros bracelet is a combination of blue monofilament fishing line (collected by Tampa Bay Watch) from a fishing pier in Florida and mint green rope (collected by Surfrider Kauai) from the beaches of Hawaii. The rope is approximately 4mm thick.

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 & fastened with a custom tag featuring the Planet Love Life logo and brand name.
