Description

This Black & Blue Lobster Rope Basket is made from recycled 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 and other sea creatures, 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. People started trying to come up with other uses for the float rope. Thus, the lobster rope basket and many other items were created. They are durable and resistant to mold, mildew, salt water, sun, and insects. They float and dry quickly which makes them great for your boat. Lisa-Marie’s carries a variety of sizes. This one measures approximately 12″ x 13″ x 15″ Lisa-Marie’s also carries mats made of the float rope. The mats and baskets come in numerous colors and no two are ever the same.
