It is estimated that up to 10 million tons of plastic waste enters the ocean from coastal communities each year. Plastic bags, bottles and other plastic accumulates forming huge patches of waste. In the ocean, plastic pollution impacts sea turtles, whales, sea birds, fish, coral reefs and countless other species and habitats. Marine and bay areas are increasingly becoming less viable environments for humans and animals alike. Our pillow and duvet collection, Azure is made in the UK using a filling made from recycled ocean bound plastic - Social Plastic®.
Not only does our bedding stop plastic from entering our oceans, but it is also helping support developing communities”. Via an exchange system, Plastic Bank encourages people in developing regions to work with them by collecting and thus preventing plastic waste from entering the ocean. Compensation is provided to communities of these regions by money and digital tokens which allow them to improve their quality of life providing an economic benefit and a cleaner ocean. The plastic collected by Plastic Bank is then cleaned and recycled becoming Social Plastic® which is sold to organisations who want to create a more sustainable, eco-friendly, and socially responsible product and supply chain.
Approximately 120 recycled bottles make a 10.5 tog double duvet.
