Plastic Pollution

The Problem

Plastic consumption is a very real issue for our planet. It wasn't until the work of Sir David Attenborough on his Blue Planet series that the public's awareness of the issue was brought to the fore. After decades of plastic disposal we have now found ourselves in a position where we need to act to save our planet and it's oceans.

The Solution

Weaver Green have developed a range of rugs, blankets and and throws is a large variety of colours and weaves. With contrast to traditional Woollen/Cotton rugs, recycled plastic rugs are easy to clean, stain resistant and extremely hard-wearing, probably the perfect material to construct a rug from. Weaver Green rugs and blankets are also moth resistant, dust mites and other critters find that the plastic isn't ideal for making their home. Therefore Weaver Green is perfect in homes with pets and allergy sufferers.

A Weaver Green rug is typically composed of 3000 recycled PET bottles, any reservations about the handle and the feel of the rug would be forgiven. However, Weaver Green rugs are incredibly soft and cosy underfoot. You may find it hard to believe these rugs were once solid plastic bottles.

Suited to a variety of locations, Weaver Green rugs can be used in kitchens and bathrooms, to hallways and gardens. The water-resistant nature of Weaver Green rugs means they work just as well outside as they do indoors.

From kitchens to bathrooms,hallways to gardens, the water-resistant nature of our rugs means they work just as well outdoors on terraces and in summer houses as they do inside; they even make great camping rugs and add a layer of comfort in a tent or yurt.
