Turtle trapped in fishing nets, a consequence of the plastic pollution of our oceans.

640,000 tons (1.28 billion pounds) of fishing gear left in the ocean each year killing an average of 1000 whales, seals, turtles and birds every day.

Fortunately, many fishermen from different Mediterranean ports, who are sensitive to this problem, take care of their nets and leave them in containers to be specially recycled.

Fishing nets to be recycled
POPSICASE is a recycled plastic phone case

The networks are sorted, washed, chopped and fused in a very laborious process of transformation. The result is a 100% recycled plastic pellet that POPSICASE uses to build a handy and eco-friendly case that perfectly fits your smartphone.

And this is happily possible thanks to the collaboration of many people and entities that work together for the same goal: reduce the plastic pollution from our oceans.

POPCYCLING circular economy

But the process doesn’t end here!  We can collect old POPSICASE and reuse all the material to make new ones. A process of circular economy never seen before!
