KATE DRURY, SUSTAINABLE ROPE LTD
Wool rope offers an environmentally sensitive alternative to plastic rope, reducing micro plastic pollution and utilising a beautiful natural fibre.
It is made from 100% wool from British Farms and is biodegradable, renewable and sustainable, offering durability and flexibility with a variety of uses. Sustainable Rope is being used for growing seaweed, replacing plastic rope. https://www.instagram.com/sustainablerope/?hl=en-gb
GRAHAM HULL & TOM LIND, WOOL POTS
Wool Pots have been created by Graham Hull and Tom Lind who were horrified to discover that over 500 million plastic plant pots were being sent to landfill in the UK every year because they are not recyclable.
Wool Pots have been created as a sustainable, biogradeable and environmentally friendly alternative to plastic pots. Wool is versatile, strong, long lasting and eventually decomposes into bio-rich plant food. It is also a natural slug and snail deterrent! https://www.wool-pots.co.uk/
