We are now selling school ties made from plastic bottles; rescued from landfill to help reduce the amount of plastic in our environment!
Rescuing plastic bottles from the landfill is a much better idea than using crude oil, a fossil fuel, to make yarn (which is how everyone else does it). Two plastic bottles are needed to make every Eco Tie.
At the same time we are also supporting British manufacturing. Keltic Ties in Lancashire is a family business which is now in its fourth generation of weavers. It currently produces over 9,000 school ties per week, on looms powered by solar panels.
FACT: plastic takes over 1000 years to degrade and the particles pollute the ground and get into our food chain.
Wear an Eco Tie and make a positive difference to the planet!
(These ties are only available from reception)
