$26

In stock

Description

This band supports the United Nations Global Goal 12, which encourages more conscious consumption. All profits of these bands go directly to supporting the achieving of these goals with the United Nations!

 

We’re consuming far more than our planet can keep providing. If we carry on like this, our projected population of 9.6 billion by 2050 will need three earth-like planets to maintain our current lifestyle. Goal 12 looks at how we can all be more Responsible Consumers and Producers. How we buy, eat and use things and the ways we source and make them can make big differences to both our planet and its population. From upcycling clothes to eating odd shaped fruit to even making beer from uneaten bread, it’s time to get creative with the products we consume.

Sustainability

To encourage people to make that choice, Bottle Top designed the #TOGETHERBANDs - a set of ethically made and sustainably sourced friendship bands. Each of the bands is a different colour to represent each of the 17 Global Goals. By choosing your Goal and wearing your #TOGETHERBAND, it brings you closer to the issue that you are championing as both a reminder and a call to action. We hope they will become a symbol of us all uniting to create a healthy planet. What’s really cool though, is that when you buy a band, you actually get two - one to wear, and one to share - so that you can give the other one to a friend and spread the message even further.

Details + Care

- Every #TOGETHERBAND rope band is made from 100% recycled plastic. Recovered plastic pollution from the coasts of Costa Rica and the US is transformed into yarn by BIONIC®. BIONIC® addresses ocean plastic pollution by orchestrating recycling operations and beach clean ups, and transforming this recovered plastic into fully traceable high-grade textiles and polymers, including the rope for your #TOGETHERBAND. In fact, for every Ocean Plastic #TOGETHERBAND sold, an additional 1KG of plastic is removed from marine and coastal environments.

- Humanium Metal is an upcycled stainless steel repurposed from destructed illegal firearms, which are seized by local authorities in Central America. The firearms are melted down and transformed back to raw stainless steel material by IM Sweden Development Partner in Sweden. Your clasp is made from the resulting Humanium Metal moulded into the shape of the signature upcycled ring pulls BOTTLETOP uses in the creation of our products. This gives the steel a new positive life as your #TOGETHERBAND clasp whilst helping to put an end to armed violence and creating new sources of funding for victims and projects aiming to rebuild conflict-torn societies.

Size & Fit

- How to fit your band:

1. Slide the loop knot to adjust the length of the band.
2. Wrap the band around your wrist and hook the loop onto the clasp.
