I was in the market for a new duvet, as I was getting too hot under my 10 tog winter duvet. I did a little research and discovered I could buy a duvet from Marks and Spencers made completely from recycled plastic bottles.
It's so important to buy products made from recycled materials. There's little point putting all your rubbish in the recycling bin if there isn't a strong demand for products made from the results of all that recycling. Buying recycled products makes recycling a viable business, saves new resources being used and creates less waste.
So, I was more than happy to part with £25 for my new duvet. I think this is a pretty standard price for a decent (king size) duvet anyway, the fact that it's recycled is a lovely bonus.
It's soft and squishy and nice and light for this hot weather we're having at the moment.
Have you ever bought any unusual or surprising recycled products?
