Plastics are incredibly useful materials but they don’t belong in our soil, lakes, rivers or oceans. Plastic waste is one of the most pressing problems our planet faces. We need to find uses for this waste to prevent it from being dumped in the environment. That’s why we have created the WeatherBeeta Green-Tec 1200D Detach-A-Neck using recycled plastics for the outer fabric, polyfill and lining.
Each rug saves over 380* from going into landfill or the ocean. But that’s not the only reason why this rug is a better choice for the environment. The way we have made it uses far less (over 50% less) energy to produce the fabric than a traditional rug. Plus it is packaged in recyclable packaging that is also made from PCR (post-consumer recyclable plastic) and our PU waterproof coating of which 27% is created using recycled camera lenses further reducing the environmental impact of our Green-Tec range.
We hope one day all rugs will be made this way. We have done all this while retaining 100% of the WeatherBeeta quality we are world famous for. While our rugs come with a 3 year warranty, they often last far longer than that. We like to think of a WeatherBeeta rug as a long term investment in a happy horse and a happy owner.
