The Maine Event

The Daytrip Society - based out of Kennebunkport, Maine - features a slew of cool Maine-related items for all you Maine-iacs. Take for instance these awesome (and uber colorful) Down East Doormats by the Maine Float-Rope Company. Fashioned from float-rope, which lobstermen used to tether multiple traps together along the ocean floor, these mats are cheery, easy to clean and virtually indestructible. Lobstermen have since been required to stop using float-rope, which was found to cause injury and even death to whales. Instead of taking up space in landfills, these babies are brightening doorsteps around the globe. On top of that, the Maine Float-Rope Company donates a portion of its proceeds to several environmentally friendly organizations and groups. Pretty awesome, don't you think?
