2022 - The Year of Sustainability
We’re not sure that this is the official title of 2022, but why not follow it anyway?
We think it’s relatively safe to say that the majority of us living in western society are very keen to slow global warming, and care about what is happening to the planet; but as the reality of it is quite far from our doorstep, it’s easy for us to put it to the backs of our minds. We don’t have turtles hatching on our beaches, struggling to make it to the ocean because there’s a plastic bottle in the way.
We think it’s ok to admit that we don’t all buy something with the environment in mind. We shop as we always have, maybe taking note that not everything is in plastic packaging any more, but generally not really thinking about it. Then, there’ll be a news story, a documentary or we’ll see an image of David Attenborough on our screens to remind us that we could be doing a bit more, and immediately get back to researching what more we can reuse or recycle.
The team here at Coast have been thinking of ways we can help you help the environment, and spread the message that there really is no Planet B, and this is our chance to preserve this wonderful place we call home and allow future generations enjoy all the things we have over the past many 100’s of years.
In 2022, we’ll be launching our very own scheme so that you know your purchases are having a positive impact on our environment. A lot of research must go in to this, so that we can do it right. We don’t want to ‘green wash’ you, we want you to be confident that you can do business with us knowing that something positive is happening too. We can’t say that it will be as soon as the clock strikes midnight on 1st January, but we can say that it will be our mission for 2022; and we’ll let you now about it, with all of the bells and whistles, when it launches.
Until then, you can find our favourite Eco-Friendly products below. They’re available to order now!
1. Aqua Clear - RPET Plastic Pen
Spread your brand message, and good vibes, with this pen made from 100% recycled plastic. It sports the recycling icon opposite the pocket clip. A contemporary pen, with a colour plunger allowing you to match it with your brand colours.
2. Wonder Plastic Compact Keyring
This is plastic, but not as you know it. Made from 100% waste materials, not one bit of virgin material has been used. It’s also fully biodegradable. Broken down by over 600 naturally occurring microbes, it biodegrades 200x faster than ordinary plastic. Manufactured in the UK, there’s no air miles and more smiles!
3. Bamboo Straw
We all know the damage plastic straws do, so how about giving your staff and clients something they can use time and time again, in every setting!
Our bamboo straws come with a cleaning brush, and cotton pouch.
4. Sirius RPET Water Bottle
This luxury water bottle is made from clear RPET with a practical straw. Eco-Friendly, BPA Free and Leak free. It’s a durable item that can be used again and again.
5. Bio Universal Takeaway Cup
This is by far our favourite right now! It’s special because, in the event that it ends up in landfill or the ocean, it breaks down and becomes food for microbes. It doesn’t leave behind any micro plastics, just natural remnant. It’s microwave and top rack dishwasher safe, BPA free and double walled, meaning that your drinks stay warmer for longer.
It’s no secret that the world is in need of us humans being a bit more mindful of what we produce and use, and what better way to show your commitment to future generations than with Eco-Friendly merchandise?
