At ReChic®, every product that we sell contains recycled material. As a small business we work with our partners to exhibit innovative, contemporary home decor products, whilst considering our environmental impact.
Using recycled rather than virgin materials has huge benefits, including reduced water consumption, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and much less waste sent to landfill (or worse, ending up in the natural environment).
We use a variety of eco-friendly materials, below are a few examples, but you will find many more on our product pages:
- Soft and luxurious Fairtrade throws are made from recycled plastic bottles, a much better home for a bottle than the ocean.
- Cushions made from cotton, where the sustainable yarn has been generated from reconstituted clothing.
- Disused shipping pallets, that would otherwise be burned or discarded, are reconditioned and used in our reclaimed wooden furniture.
- Vases, transformed from soft drinks bottles into eye-catching, decorative, statement pieces.
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 circular and sustainable economy that reuses what we already have, whilst still enjoying uplifting, modern, home furnishings.
