The Office chair made from recycled fish netting!
We are often asked how sustainable the products that we supply are and what impact they have on the environment. This subject is becoming more and more talked about after the recent publications, and awareness is increasing at a rapid rate. Being situated in Cornwall, we are very aware of the effect that plastic is having in our oceans. Every day approximately 8 million pieces of plastic pollution find their way into our oceans. There may now be around 5.25 trillion macro and microplastic pieces floating in the open ocean. Weighing up to 269,000 tonnes. Plastics consistently make up 60 to 90% of all marine debris studied.
One of our suppliers, Humanscale have created a chair, keeping the frightening facts above, in mind. We are really impressed with the brilliant Smart Ocean chair. The chair utilises material from discarded ocean fishing nets collected and recycled by Bureo, an emerging venture developing innovative solutions to prevent ocean pollution. The nets are transformed into plastic pellets and then used to manufacture Smart Ocean chairs. Smart Ocean is the first-ever ergonomic chair to be built with recycled net.
The Smart Ocean chair offers the same timeless design and functionality as the Diffrient Smart chair, Smart Ocean offers Form-Sensing Mesh Technology to instantly adjust to and move with every unique user. There is no need for training, instructions or manual adjustments. If you would like more information on this fabulous ergonomic and more sustainable chair, please do not hesitate to get in touch or come and see the chair for yourself at our premises.
