Recycled Plastic Rug

Product description

One of the big challenges of plastics recycling is what to make with the plastics you have collected. Recycling only works if you make further secondary use of the plastics. This rug from one of our Indian Fair Trade suppliers is made from recycled Polyethylene terephthalate, commonly used for food containers and drinks bottles. The end product is soft and stain resistant. Washable at 30ºC. Hard wearing and long lasting. At the end of its life it may be recycled again.

More about why we sourced this product

Recycled Plastic Rug

Shared Earth began as a small shop in York in 1986. Jeremy Piercy, founder and Managing Director, travelled to India after leaving school and wanted to do something to help redress the imbalance of wealth in the world, work together with people from different cultures, and at the same time earn a living. Fair Trade was the obvious answer and the original shop contained a wide mix of products from Asia, Africa and South America. Also high on the agenda was addressing environmental problems and the shop was an excellent way of making recycled and sustainable products available and publicising the issues.
