Your purchase with Cape Porpoise Trading Co. not only prevents used lobster rope from going into a landfill it also puts money in the pockets of Maine lobstermen. 

Wondering why lobstermen can’t use this perfectly good rope anymore? 

Lobster rope aka float rope, pot-warp was once the primary type of rope lobstermen use at sea. A few years back the government banned float rope because of whale entanglement issues, forcing lobstermen to make a switch to a different kind of rope (sink rope). This resulted in an abundance of used float rope that was headed for a landfill.

This past year we at Cape Porpoise Trading Co. partnered up with the Maine Lobstermen Association giving us the ability to connect with lobstermen all over the coast of Maine. We pay those lobstermen directly for their used float rope so we can keep making lovely, handmade, lobster rope goods.
