Ethical Superstore aren’t. They’ve teamed up with Vivid Arts to bring you stylish and original recycled rugs and eco plant pots as an alternative to the mass-produced ones we all use. Around 500 million plastic plant pots are used in the UK each year. This consumes fossil fuels, and if pots aren’t recycled, damages the environment further. So maybe the green-fingered among us need to start thinking a little greener?
The pots and urns are crafted from recycled tyres and inner tubes that would otherwise go to landfill. Ornamental as well an innovative, these strong, durable recycled pots are constructed using ancient leather working techniques, rot-proof Kevlar stitched seams and have excellent drainage.
It may be early days for Ethical Superstore’s vision ‘Creating Global Change Through An Ethical Consumer Revolution’, but their ability to source from fair trade suppliers in over 40 countries means this is a trend that’s set to grow. (Thanks to Elliot for this spot.)
