We’re in crisis. Plastic crisis.

More than 1 MILLION plastic bottles are bought every minute across the globe and ONLY 9% of all plastic waste produced is being recycled – the rest ends up in the ocean, landfills, and the wider natural environment.

All Maemara cushions are made from 100% recycled fabric and filling.
