Float-rope is used by lobster-men to tether multiple traps together on the ocean floor. The problem with float-rope is that it can entangle whales. Maine lobster-men are now required to replace their float-rope with sink-rope. The Gulf of Maine Lobster Foundation purchases the old float-rope from the lobster-men, keeping the huge quantities out of the Maine landfills. The rope is then reclaimed and woven into virtually indestructible doormats by craftspeople in Maine. Maine Float-Rope Co. donates a percentage of their sales to the Gulf of Maine Lobster Foundation. They also support programs that protect the Northern Right Whale and research that promotes sound environmental practices for the state of Maine.
