Each of the coasters is made using a manual injection machine at the DOBA studio in Edinburgh, one by one with manually selected plastic waste.
The Blue Ocean coasters are made from BLUE HDPE caps and some of the white milk jugs.
The Green Rainforrest coasters are made mostly from GREEN HDPE caps and some of the white milk jugs.
They will be similar to each other, but never identical, making each and every set unique in its own way.
By purchasing this product, you will support the small independent business and the young couple who came up with the exciting idea, as well as the local plastic recycling in Edinburgh!
Dimensions of one: 10.6 x 9.2 x 0.6cm
Founder Of Bambú, Simona + her scientific background:
“As a researcher who always had a major interest in improving healthcare, I grew increasingly concerned about the harmful impacts of ever-growing plastic consumption on wildlife, the environment and ultimately the health and wellbeing of us humans, too.
Understanding from a scientific point of view and being aware of the devastating consequences of land and ocean pollution affecting the quality of air, water and food that we consume and breath in, my desire to change to a more ethical and sustainable lifestyle became even more pressing.
The aim of Bambú is simple: to make a positive impact on the environment, healthcare and community by providing wholesome foods and eco-friendly products with less packaging.”
