Fabrics from recycled plastic
Weaver Green offer a range of environmentally-friendly, handwoven recycled rugs, blankets, cushions and textiles made from 100% recycled PET plastic bottles. All their textures are ridiculously soft! Their rugs look and feel just like wool, but contain up to 3000 salvaged plastic bottles each. With over 35 billion plastic bottles finding their way into our seas each year and over 90% of all marine birds having plastic deposits in their stomachs, Weaver Green believe it is important to find creative and useful ways of turning recycled plastic bottles into beautiful additions for our homes. Within five years of launching the brand, Weaver Green has already recycled roughly 200 million plastic bottles, 40% of which had been recovered from waterways destined for the ocean.
The company also cares about people as well; only using weaving houses committed to employing skilled adults, who are paid fairly and enjoy comfortable working conditions.
To limit potential microfibre shedding, all of their textiles are made from yarn that reaches the highest possible tensile stability and strength. They also avoid toxic dyes and use a closed water system in their yarn production. This means all of their products are washed and dyed with the same re-filtered water rather than using new water supplies and releasing unfiltered water into the sewerage system. They even heat their dye baths by burning recycled wheat and rice husks in a low emission boiler. What's not to love?
Made of waste wood sourced from trees felled in Britain and hand finished in Birmingham, Foresso is perfect for everyday surfaces such as tables, worktops, and furniture. Their business is ethical, low carbon and circular. Foresso is made using off cut timber, wood dust, mineral powders and non-toxic and formaldehyde free binder glue to stick everything together. They developed this usage in-house and it's a unique water based formulation. The Foresso worktops look modern and add are a sustainable choice for the kitchen.
