An Outdoor Doormat Created By A Maine Law?

Lobster Rope Doormats actually came about as part of a solution to help Maine fishermen comply with a federal law. How? The March 2009 law stated that using “float-rope” (lobster rope that floats rather than sinks) in certain areas of the ocean created entangling hazards for whales. The law prohibited the use of it, resulting in tons of tons of pounds of ropes becoming useless to fisherman virtually overnight. 

To address this problem, fishermen turned in their used float rope and received credit vouchers to purchase new, safer sinking rope. 

However, this created another problem – all of the leftover floating lobster rope needed to be disposed. Instead of sending it to landfills, artisans repurposed the rope into beautiful and authentic lobster rope doormats. 

In 2009 The New England Trading Company because the first company to sell The Original Lobster Rope Doormat online!

This heavy-duty doormat not only offers a solution to the problem of ocean pollution, but it also tells a unique and historical story.

Every Recycled Lobster Rope Doormat is woven from a rope once used in the ocean, plus scrap rope, making it an authentic piece of nautical history. And with fishermen still turning in their rope today, lobster rope doormats remain an eco-friendly solution to an ongoing problem.

But you don't need to purchase a used rope doormat if you want a Lobster Rope Doormat. Wicked Good Doormats are Lobster Rope Doormats woven from new lobster rope, and are available in over 35 colors.

The Benefits of Using Lobster Rope in a Doormat

Think about all of that rope, under the sea, connecting thousands of lobster traps. Pretty amazing, right. Sun, saltwater, sand, wind… those traps stay snugly tethered thanks to the weatherproof lobster rope. That's why Lobster Rope Doormats make the best oudoor doormats. The rope is engineered to dry quickly, stay strong despite the water, and they avoid mildew and mold. Lobster Rope is an ideal material for outdoor use because it was specifically designed for underwater use.

Choosing a Durable Outdoor Doormat

Doormats for outside use must be strong enough to put up with constant weather change as well as plenty of foot traffic! Choosing a doormat made of weatherproof nautical rope just makes good sense. As a result, you won't have to replace your doormat frequently, saving you money in the long run.

An Eco-Friendly and Sustainable Choice

By repurposing used and scrap fishing rope materials into a woven doormat, recycled doormats help reduce waste and protect the environment. Consequently, it makes them a smart choice for homeowners concerned about their purchases' impact on the planet.
