G-lish weavers use 270-300 recycled plastic bag twines in every recycled Bolga basket. Since G-lish began producing baskets using recycled pure water plastic bags in 2010, we have consumed 368,000 plastic bags. The fact that each Modern Basket uses at least 270 pure water plastic bags means that we consume a lot of recycled plastic every year.
Upon waking this morning, we were greeted with this visually stunning story about G-lish Foundation on Recycled Interiors, a site and business managed by Helen Edwards in South Australia. A little about Recycled Interiors: "Recycled Interiors has a focus on health & wellbeing – in the home, at the individual level and from an environmental perspective – believing that design, architecture and interior decoration should focus on the health of people and planet, alongside function and form. We encourage people to use a blend of sustainable, locally designed, upcycled and vintage pieces in decorating their homes."
We're excited to share this interview with you on SBS radio. Godwin Yidana and Gayle Pescud, the co-founders of G-lish Foundation, were interviewed by Bertrand Tungandame at the SBS studios in Sydney. Thank you Bertrand and SBS Radio!
