Find out why we are such HUGE fans of NEWLY! These blankets are in our office and we’ve taken to draping them over us as our space is getting a little chilly with the seasonal change. They have the perfect heft and are oh-so-soft. To then find out that they are made from 51% recycled cotton and 49% recycled plastic bottles was mind boggling! Yes, each blanket uses 12 plastic bottles and saves 2250 gallons of water, but that only matters if you have one awesome blanket, and we assure you these are just that. Helping the world out with this purchase is an additional bi-product.
NEWLY was started by five friends who identified what they believed to be a serious problem — not enough high-quality consumer goods were being made with recycled content. Too many times the consumer was forced to make a decision between style and sustainability.
They set out to prove that both can co-exist, and they have done just that!
They searched around the world and found sources for 100% recycled materials to craft beautiful home goods. And, these blankets are so soft and sturdy. You will enjoy them for years to come!
Blankets are 50″ x 60″. Makes a perfect gift, but fair warning as they are hard to see and feel and then give away!
