Good-news video: fishing nets to electricity

This brief video from the Surfrider Foundation Kaua‘i shows a team of volunteers organized by Malama Na Apapa on Kaua‘i taking a 3-years’ accumulation of derelict fishing nets and delivering them to H-Power’s waste-to-energy facility on Oahu. They filled a 20-foot container with nets and ropes collected from the reefs (underwater work) and the beaches, keeping them away from marine animals and the landfill both. A lot of work is on display–those nets are heavy!
