WHAT IS SOCIAL PLASTIC®️?
Founded in 2013, Plastic Bank began their quest to reduce the amount of plastic waste in the environment whilst also helping to alleviate poverty in developing countries. The goal of Plastic Bank is to prevent plastic waste from entering rivers and oceans in regions that do not have efficient and formal waste or recycling systems, while opening new opportunities for people living in poverty. This is done via an exchange system, whereby Plastic Bank encourages people in such regions to work with them by collecting and thus preventing plastic waste from entering the ocean. Compensation is provided to these communities and people, often in need, by money and Blockchain-secured digital tokens, which allow them to improve their quality of life, whilst contributing to 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 supply chain for their products. Sirimiri are proud to be using this waste as part of their homewares collection.
Sirimiri have partnered with a UK manufacturing company who have embraced this new high technology product and have turned it into soft, fluffy, long-lasting duvets & pillows which keep their shape remarkably, as well as being breathable and hypoallergenic. Exceptional manufacturing of superior materials is a key factor to the success of our product - from creation to consistent comfort at home.
