PLASTIC IS NOT WELCOME HERE
With World Environment Day just around the corner, ethical holiday brand Aspiga has pledged to clean up Malindi beach in Kenya, with a new initiative which will see them removing a basket of plastic for every pair of their Kenyan sandals sold. Even though Kenya has banned plastic bags, there is still a lot of plastic bottles, flip flops, fishing nets which are a hazard for the marine life and the future of the planet.
The brand has maintained a close relationship with the Kenyan community since they launched, and are delighted to be able to include local children in this project in promoting the avoidance of plastic.
With a range of eco-friendly products including bamboo cotton buds, re-useable snack bags, E-coffee cups and Swell drink bottles, Aspiga are on a mission to recycle as much waste as possible and are on their way to a zero-plastic office. Through their production processes, they try to avoid airfreight whenever possible, minimising the company's carbon footprint. And the brand's packaging is reviewed regularly as they strive to create as little waste possible when sending our goods.
With over 60 different sandal styles in the Kenyan range, you can shop in the pop-up shop on at 345 Kings Road which opens on 17th May for three weeks or online at https://www.aspiga.com/
The campaign will launch online on May 1st and run through to World Environment day on 5th June 2019.
