Introducing PLOYS

PURPOSE: We are an environmentally focussed Profit for Purpose business and we stand for SUSTAINABILITY and RECYCLING.  Creating new unique one-off designer bags and purses by UPCYCLING PVC which cannot be recycled in mainstream.

REUSE-REDUCE: PVC takes hundreds of years to disintegrate into a MICROPLASTIC which re-enters our oceans and food/life cycle. Since starting in January 2020 we have saved approximately 250 kg of discarded PVC WASTE, instead of this going into landfill!

FUTURE: We recognise the need to safeguard our PLANET by creating unique durable products from plastic waste based on the principles of a CIRCULAR ECONOMY. We also have a commitment of providing a better future through community employment opportunities.

Customer Reviews

Bella doesn’t go on any adventures without her Ploys Tote bag anymore! Great for any activity specially the beach as sand just brushes right off. Also lots of room to store plenty of toys... or other needed items. Would recommend highly!

Emily Kruger

Absolutely love my tote bag from Ploys! So well made and fantastic to know that the material is all recycled. Thank you!

Sue Holley

Love my Ploys! Just ordered Wet/Dry bags for new mama’s to be…they are large and perfect for wet and dirty clothes. I got the messenger bag for myself because I’m tired of worrying if my bag is going to be ruined in the rain. Great quality and lovely owner. Get yours!
