The Marine Saver Mission also continues the Nets Up project by repurposing marine materials into innovative, recycled textiles. Satita Ninsuvannakul, the designer and driving force behind this project and President of The Youth Fund, revealed that the Marine Saver Mission focuses on converting discarded fishing nets into Marine Materials.

These innovative recycled alternatives add value to products and support income generation for local fishing communities, highlighting the role of youth in driving marine conservation efforts and adhering to circular economy principles.

These specially designed garments will be sold at charity events, through online channels, and featured in creative innovation contests aimed at reducing global warming. The launch coincides with World Ozone Day on September 16th. All proceeds from sales will be donated to the Forest and Marine Ranger Foundation, supporting ongoing conservation efforts.
