Introducing PLOYS

PURPOSE: PLOYS - Creative Concepts in Disguise is an environmentally focussed Profit for Purpose business and we stand for sustainability and upcycling based on the principles of a circular economy.  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. This has to stop. Since starting PLOYS in January 2020 we have saved approximately 150 kg of discarded PVC, instead of this going into landfill! We would like to THANK YOU for your support in achieving this!

FUTURE: We recognise the need to safeguard our earth & future and combine this with our love for functionality and design, by creating unique durable products from waste. We have a vision to do no harm to the environment and support our planet by seeking solutions to the growing plastic waste crisis. We also focus on employment and work experience opportunities to communities.
