The NuKelp Project aims to keep South Africa at the forefront of the seaweed revolution. We deal with excessive seaweed on Cape Town’s beaches in a unique way. We’re building a network of partners and collaborators, creating a platform for designers to create innovative products from seaweed.
It is an amazing untapped natural resource. The end goal is to create a circular production system, using funds generated from the product sales to grow more kelp forests. Alongside local designers, we also have international companies partnering with us.
The project addresses various issues including CO2 drawdown, beach beautification, and job creation.
