Plant Pots made from Rope & Fishing Net

Made from 100% Waste Material

Discarded rope and fishing net is destined for landfill, or can end up in the sea or on our beaches.

Ocean Plastic Pots uses this discarded material to make a sustainable plant pot

Our pots create a circular economy and can be easily recycled,

but we made them to last, so we hope you’ll hang on to them.

Designed in Glasgow and made in Scotland 

  • On the 2nd of December 2019, a 10-ton Sperm Whale washed up on Luskentyre Beach on the Isle of Harris in Scotland. It had 100kg of rope, fishing net, and plastic debris in it's stomach.
  • Three-months later, I was a Diver on the salvage of the MV Kaami which hit a reef 20km from Luskentyre Beach.
  • The MV Kaami was carrying 1937 tons of refuge derived fuel, (shredded waste and plastic). Diving in this amount of plastic debris inspired me.
  • During one of my dives, I found a small blue plastic ball and kept it in the pocket of my diving suit.
  • We started to work with a recycler rope and fishing net.
  • I shredded the blue ball and added it to a mix of rope and net to manufacture this plant pot by hand. Ocean Plastic Pots was born.

Animal entanglement in marine litter and debris poses serious welfare and conservation concerns, and is unfortunately something we are seeing more and more often.

Everyone is responsible for the current state of our seas and everyone can do something to improve this. It’s so encouraging to see businesses like Ocean Plastic Pots being proactive and tackling the issue head on
