Ett Hem has risen beyond home decor by committing to a cause that is important for us all – environmental sustainability. Through our yearly partnership with Plastic Bank, Ett Hem is not only adorning spaces with exquisite forever flowers but also planting the seeds of change to combat plastic pollution. Ett Hem is committed to removing 1,000 KG of plastic from the oceans every year, equivalent to 50,000 water bottles!
About Plastic Bank
Plastic Bank® empowers the regenerative society. We are helping the world stop ocean plastic while improving the lives of collector communities. Plastic Bank builds ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities and reprocesses the materials for reintroduction into the global manufacturing supply chain. Collectors receive a premium for the materials they collect which helps them provide basic family necessities such as groceries, cooking fuel, school tuition, and health insurance. Plastic Bank’s certified blockchain platform secures the entire transaction and provides real-time data visualisation – allowing for transparency, traceability, and rapid scalability. The collected material is reborn as Social Plastic® which can be easily reintegrated into products and packaging as part of a closed-loop supply chain. Plastic Bank currently operates in Haiti, Brazil, Indonesia, the Philippines, and Egypt.
