For long now, we have been speaking of relatively more sustainable ways of living –– this includes consuming as well as producing. There is scope for many such processes to be better for the environment. In fact, participating in these processes counts for much of the future.
A brand that is taking steps to take ownership of, and reduce its waste is The Rug Republic. Recycling bicycle tubes, PET yarns extracted from recycled water bottles, recycled silk yarns, and other multi-fibre textiles, The Rug Republic is turning the act of controlling plastic pollution into a profitable proposition.
Aditya Gupta, Director of The Rug Republic says, “Products today need to have a story as well as a soul. Green living is not just a fad but a need of the hour. Recycled materials are a global favourite and outdoor furnishings made from recycled PET bottles are a universal hit.”
While the company’s other products, too, are biodegradable, the thought of PET bottles as rugs particularly excites us. Far from any tacky looks, these rugs can only add charm to your space.
A trendy yet homely rug to spruce up our home that controls plastic waste? Sign us up!
