At ReChic, we exclusively sell home decor and furniture that contain recycled materials. Why? Because a circular economy, with reduced demand on natural resources, is critical to our collective future.
A small business, with big ideas, we are determined to pursue a sustainable path through innovative production and design. With that in mind, our products use a variety of eco-friendly materials, including:
- Soft and luxurious fair trade blankets are made from recycled plastic bottles, a much better home for a bottle than the ocean.
- Cushions made from cotton, where the yarn has been generated from reconstituted clothing.
- Salvaged shipping pallets, that would otherwise be burned or discarded, are reconditioned and used in our reclaimed wooden tables.
- The transformation of soft drinks bottles into eye-catching, decorative vases.
Why is using recycled rather than virgin materials environmentally friendly? Benefits include significantly reduced water consumption, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and much less waste sent to landfill (or worse, ending up in the natural environment).
We don't claim to be perfect, there is for example plastic in our supply chain that we are seeking to remove. However, we aim to source ethically and be part of a sustainable system that reuses what we already have, whilst still enjoying uplifting, modern, home furnishings.
