13cm pot with drainage hole and saucer.
These Ocean Plastic Pot are made from the darker elements of Rope and Fishing Net and manufactured in Scotland.
"Diving in this amount of refuse and seeing the impact of plastic waste on our marine life inspired Ally. He taught himself some basic, manufacturing techniques and started making plant pots from plastic he picked off the beach as well as discarded ropes and fishing net. All this was done from his home in Glasgow.
The pots themselves although durable and built to last can also be recycled again, creating a circular economy." - Ocean Plastic Pots

True to their colour online, they’re beautiful and really brighten up the place. I also bought several other plants and pots on this order and none of them disappointed, I’d recommend Moose Plant Shop to anyone!
Sidenote: I watched a guy on YouTube who made a video talking about recycling ocean plastics, as lots of companies have claimed they’re recycling ocean plastic, but instead it’s marine plastic, meaning it can be taken from rivers, beaches, basically anywhere within a 30km radius of the coast.
I can’t say that’s true of this brand, they’re manufactured in Scotland after an environmentalist who loved marine life started gathering old nets and turning them into plant pots. It all seems really legitimate, with the supplier of the fishing nets being a group of volunteer divers who have collected over 300 tonnes of ghost fishing nets. It warmed my heart to learn there are people doing these amazing things. Even donating some of their profits to other marine conservation work. Definitely worth the £15. I bought 3!
