A global issue
Each year 8 billion kilos of plastic enter the oceans, polluting beaches and waterways around the world.
The net effect
Fishing nets make up an estimated 10% of all plastic in the ocean. What's even worse is that they're four times more harmful to the ocean environment than all other forms of plastic pollution.
A simple solution
The Bontrager Bat Cage gives new life to old and discarded fishing nets, keeping them out of our oceans and transforming them into something useful.
Bureo and netplus
Our Bat Cages are made from Bureo's NetPlus nylon pellets. Bureo collects end-of-life fishing nets in Chile and recycles them into raw nylon so they can be made into everything from sunglasses to skateboards.
One product, big impact
A one-year supply of our recycled nylon Bat Cages keeps approximately 4,000 square metres of fishing nets out of our oceans.
