My business idea is:
To crochet facewipes using SeaCell TM yarn - This yarn combines the eco-friendly credentials of lyocell, which is a regenerated pure cellulose fibre, with the properties of seaweed. (All of the nutrients, none of the smell)
The seaweed is sustainably sourced once every 4 years, and it's cut at a height that allows the plant to regenerate. This ensures that the plant isn't permanently damaged and by pruning the seaweed, we encourage the plant to sprout more.
Handmade crocheted face wipes
They are puffy, super absorbent and soft.
They are effective at removing dirt and oil in just seconds with water or your favourite cleanser.
& Best of all, they can be reused over and over again.
What will this crowdfunder achieve?:
In the bigger picture, these crocheted face wipes will save countless wet wipes from going to landfill after a single use. Effectively saving our planet from plastic. (Yay!)
Or it will prevent wet wipes from going into the sea - Data from 2017's Great British Beach Clean showed a 94% rise in the number of wet wipes found on UK beaches compared with their previous survey.
Marine Conservation Society Beachwatch surveys found on average 30 wet wipes per 100m of beach.
I think facial wet wipes are an avoidable plastic waste/source of micro-plastic in our oceans and I want to create an alternative.
In the smaller picture, you're going to help a stay at home mum launch her first ever business, doing something that she loves - crochet! (Double Yay!)
The money will be spent on buying SeaCellTM yarn, and crochet hooks.
