The fishermen of San Benedetto del Tronto on Italy’s Adriatic coast are more used to filling their nets with fish than anything else. But in recent years they have noticed the increasing level of seaborne plastic waste. Now they are turning their hand to doing something about it, with the support of FPT Industrial, the global powertrain brand of CNH Industrial N.V. (NYSE:CNHI / MI:CNHI). They are on a mission to reduce this plastic waste; by not only bringing their fish to market, but by sustainably disposing of any plastic waste caught up in their nets.
