Use ocean plastic pegs to dry clothes

Clothes pegs made from recycled ocean plastic

The NONA Ocean Clothespin is manufactured from 100% recycled ocean plastic primarily sourced from worn-out fishing nets. Their mission is to help support the circular economies dedicated to intercepting ocean plastic through the manufacture of useful everyday products.

An average drying-machine cycle uses just over 4kWh of energy and produces around 1.8kg CO2.
