In the past float-rope was used by lobstermen to tether multiple traps together on the ocean floor. Unfortunately it was discovered that float-rope can pose a danger to whales, entangling them and leading to potential harm. Today Maine lobstermen are required to use sink-rope, which led to the question of what to do with all the now unusable float-rope. Enter Lisa-Marie’s colorful rope mats – a pretty, practical and amazing recycling outlet, giving a second life to hundreds of thousands of pounds of float-rope, and keeping it out of Maine landfills.

Description

The lobster rope doormat is made from reclaimed, recycled lobster float-rope. Float-rope was used by lobstermen to tether multiple traps together on the ocean floor. The problem with float-rope is that it can entangle whales, which sometimes leads to their injury or death. Now, Maine lobstermen are required to replace float-rope with sink-rope. Finally, without an appropriate recycling outlet, hundreds of thousands of pounds of this turned-in float-rope could end up in Maine landfills. Thus, the doormats were created.
