13 Year Old McKenzie Plante Recyled Lobster Rope Mac’s Mats
My mom Marcy told me that I should send you pictures of my business, Macs
Mats. I am 13 and I am going into 8th grade. You can find my story on
www.macsmats.com. I have my mats in many stores in Gloucester like Willow
Rest, Cape Ann Marina, Emerson Inn in Rockport and the Island hobby art Shop
on Maine Street. Can I answer any questions for you? Thank you again for
helping promote my business.
Saving Whales One Mat At a Time
Here’s the Story-
Off the coast of Maine, Northern Right Whales were getting entangled in lobsterman’s rope. The National Marine Fisheries Service (NMFS) enacted a regulation mandating that fishermen use sinking rope in order to prevent right whales and other marine life from dieing. At the same time, the regulation provides a “buyback” of the floating rope, giving the fishermen a voucher to purchase new sinking rope.
Every piece of rope used in the dog leashes and the mats is part of the recycle effort!
