We’re wildly excited about our newest earrings! We love our feather series, but birds need a food source so we’re delighted to launch our new kōwhai earrings! The bright yellow flowers are loved by NZers and the way they burst into life heralds the arrival of spring and the lightness of our steps.
Remix Plastic’s kōwhai earrings are laser cut from ice cream container lids and plastic bottles. This is the first of our products to use PET bottles! To find out more about why we make these, read our blog post.
The plastic used for bottles is easily recycled, but this provides manufactures an escape clause - they can keep using single-use packaging while claiming that it will be recycled. But in reality, only 8% of recyclable plastic is actually recycled and plastic bottles are one of the top two most damaging ocean pollutants.
Reuse, not recycling, is the answer and our Kōwhai earrings challenge you to switch to reusables whenever you can. Like Kōwhai flowers you can burst into spring with a positive climate action, making small changes for big environmental change!
Brighten your day and lighten your footsteps with these 100% recycled earrings! $2 from every pair sold is donated to Trees that Count to support planting of native plants.
