It was an absolute pleasure attending the Falmouth International Sea Shanty Festival this summer. We were invited by Clean Ocean Sailing, one of the charities we support, to do our first LIVE demo event. We got to show off our recycled ocean plastic plant pots and make them right on the quayside in Falmouth, Cornwall, UK.
‘Clean Ocean Sailing’ clean our coasts sustainably under sail as well as doing outreach programs around Cornwall. With 65 000 visitors, it was great to finally get our pots in front of people and get some feedback on the products we make! We did a workshop demonstrating how we collect abandoned ocean waste, clean, process and shred the material. I then made my plant pots by hand using the injection machine and moulds LIVE on the quayside for thousands of ocean lovers and pirates.
It is a fantastic way to demonstrate positive sustainable outcomes for beach cleaners, nature lovers and kids! We are determined to demonstrate that there are solutions to our environmental challenges through sustainable circular design thinking.
Our mission is to help promote positive outcomes for coastal communities by cleaning our oceans, promoting recycling and demonstrating how people and businesses can renew, recycle, restore and regenerate the planet and the economy. 10% of profits go directly towards our coastal cleanup charities to help with education and outreach programs.
