PescART Menorca

A circular economy project.

PescART Menorca aims to convert discarded fishing nets into new commercially viable products in order to reduce the significant environmental impact that this waste was causing. In this sense, the project aims to restore the value to waste, promoting the circular economy and the symbiosis between the preservation of the environment and the local artisanal sector, while seeking cooperation between the productive sector, that is, the fishermen's guilds, and the key actors in the social field, such as the Foundation for People with Disabilities of Menorca. Thanks to the project, on the one hand, it avoids generating waste, taking advantage of it as raw material for new commercially viable products. And, on the other, the generation of employment and green economy is promoted, joining it to social integration actions.
