Nylon is a synthetic polymer made from petroleum that inherits very durable and sturdy characteristics. With its properties, this material is widely used in all sorts of product categories in the fashion world, however, during the process of making nylon, it emits nitrous oxide, which is 300 times more potent than carbon dioxide. According to WSPA (World Society for the Protection of Animals), more than 600 thousand fishing tools are dumped into the sea, and fishing nets (made from nylon) are a key component. Recycled nylon is derived from recycling these fishnets and remaking them into yarn and then becoming recycled fishing nets fabric, preventing them from polluting the ocean.
