Made from recycled materials
One person's trash is another person's treasure (or line of eco-friendly products😃). The benefits of recycling are plentiful; from reducing waste and conserving resources to preventing pollution and saving energy. These businesses have gone green by using recycled or wasted materials to make some pretty awesome products. ♻️
Clothing from recycled material
Globally the fashion industry produces 13 million tons of textile waste every year. Rather than manufacturing new clothes from scratch, there are some brands out there making good use of waste material and recycling it to create some amazing clothing lines. Check these out!
Recycled household items
Did you know that furniture and appliances are responsible for around 30% of greenhouse gas emissions and non-renewable energy consumption? One way to help tackle this is to opt for recycled, upcycled or second hand homeware and save the resource that would otherwise go into producing new products.
Food waste innovations
Food waste continues to be a big problem. WRAP estimates that around 10 million tonnes of food waste is generated every year in the UK. These companies are doing their bit to tackle this by turning surplus produce into innovative products. ♻️🍏
