Our planet is facing a plastic pollution crisis. Each year we produce 300 million tonnes of plastic waste – that’s nearly the same weight as the entire world population. Predictions show that unless something is done to reduce this, we will have created four times as much plastic waste by 2050.
It’s a well-known fact that much of this plastic waste ends up in our oceans, about eight million tonnes in fact – that’s enough to circle the earth 425 times. Each year this ‘ocean plastic’ is killing in excess of 100,000 marine creatures, and by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish calling the ocean its home. However, there is help at hand. Initiatives such as ocean circular recovery projects are helping to raise awareness and encourage consumers to take responsibility for local ocean clean-up operations. But what happens to the ocean plastic that is recovered?
Tackling a worldwide issue, LifestyleGarden® is the proud producer of the DuraOcean® chair, an innovative product development that is breaking new ground by utilising recycled maritime plastic, to create the world’s first commercially available chair made with marine plastic waste, setting the benchmark for sustainable material usage and design.
