To close the European Sustainable Development Week, here is The SeaCleaners team’s selection of brands and initiatives to follow.
The first shopping center dedicated to recycling and zero waste opened in Sweden!
This immense space also hosts restaurants, events, conferences and an educational center to challenge people’s consumption habits. All products are recycled or reused, or developed in responsible and sustainable materials.
With the explosion of online shopping, single-use packaging has become king (we are talking about 14.3 billion items sent in France alone per year). This Finnish company created THE solution: when you receive a parcel, you just have to send the packaging back. It’s simple, efficient and reduces considerably the unique plastic packaging!
Balzeo was created by a 23 years old French entrepreneur who wanted to act against plastic pollution. It offers a wide range of products, at low prices and for all tastes, including a water bottle, helping in financing the Manta project.
BLACK & BLUM
Black&Blum is THE English brand that has revolutionized lunch boxes by combining design and innovation for eco-responsible and no-waste lunches.
With clothing made from recycled materials, this French West Coast brand wants to combine comfort, style, and eco-responsibility in a wide range of products, with short circuit for 80% of their clothes made in France, and 20% made in Portugal.
Umaï is the new French brand of organic cosmetics, very mindful of the environment: recyclable and natural packaging for products designed only 20km from their laboratory.
As we already miss the sun, let’s focus on Nomads Surfing, the French start-up that creates board drifts from fishing nets recovered from the oceans or harbors. An innovative concept that gives eco-responsible alternatives to the development of surfboards. Their crowdfunding campaign started on October 5th, don’t hesitate to give them a boost!
In France, Chilowe has become THE media of choice for micro-adventures! A repertoire of activities and ideas to spend a green vacation, while respecting the environment.
