The Pot Company offers plastic-free living with New Homeware Range23 Jul 2018
The Pot Company is contributing to the move away from plastics with a colourful and inspiring collection of eco-friendly homeware – made from ground down bamboo.
With single use plastics hitting the headlines for posing one of the most significant risks to our planet, the wholesaler to the Garden Centre industry has taken over the wholesale distribution of the Green Tones range, a recycled alternative to plastics, ceramics and glassware.
In bright, bold tones, the sleek products, which have been used in Channel 5’s Big Brother house, offer a natural choice for those wanting to ditch the many commonly-found plastic items inside and outside the home including garden pots, picnic sets, children's tableware, pet bowls and takeaway coffee cups.
As well as being non-toxic and dishwasher safe, eco-conscious shoppers can also be reassured that while plastic takes 450 years to break down - putting enormous toll on our wildlife and ecosystem - the Green Tones collection biodegrades in under five years with minimal landfill impact.
Sometimes sold with the tagline “I used to be a chopstick”, the eye-catching range was spotted by one of The Pot Company’s directors on a business trip to China.
After being drawn to their bright colours and sharp lines, his interest deepened on hearing the products had been created with offcuts from decking, bamboo placemats and chopsticks.
Director Jason Frost said: “It looks and handles remarkably like its plastic equivalents but has none of the nasty components or drawbacks. We started off with plant pots and coffee cups but we’ve been expanding into new areas and now have tableware and many more domestic items – the potential range is endless.
The Pot Company already has several retailers for Green Tones products, including the Eden Project and Round Wood of Mayfield.
