Net Effect. the global carpet tile manufacturer’s latest collection, is inspired by the ocean’s life-giving power but also its plight. Marine life and their habitats are endangered by discarded fishing nets, acidification, over-fishing, pollution and climate change.
The collection was born from Net-Works, an innovative global business and conservation partnership between Interface and the Zoological Society of London. Net-Works was launched along the Danajon Bank Area of The Philippines in 2012, with the goal of tackling two distinct issues: addressing the growing environmental problem of discarded fishing nets in some of the world’s poorest coastal communities and finding a viable waste stream to feed the company’s ambitious post-consumer nylon recycling goals.
