Making Carpet from Discarded Fishing Nets

by , Yes! magazine:

In this video by Sustainable Brands, Miriam Turner of the firm Interface gives a 10-minute introduction on the challenge of making a business not only sustainable but also economically inclusive.

After that, you'll see a short documentary film about how Interface, through collaboration with a wide variety of organizations all around the world, created a business that harvests fishing nets from the shorelines of the Philippines and then uses the nylon they're made off to create 100 percent recycled carpeting.
