“Plastic Oceans UK was founded by Jo Ruxton and Sonja Norman in 2009. They embarked on their first project, creating the film A Plastic Ocean, to raise awareness of the plastic pollution issue. That mission became a reality in January 2017, when the film launched on a global scale. The foundation has since developed 3 pillars of identity: our science, sustainability and education programmes.”
Nalu Beads donates £2.00 from the sale of every one of these special beads.
We worked with the founder of Plastic Oceans, Jo Ruxton to come up with a bead that truly represented how beautiful our ocean is and what the charity means. We decided to use and work with colours that portray the changing colours of the beach, shoreline and the ocean. We used an ivory glass to represent the sandy beach sitting next to a white glass for sea foam. A turquoise, dark teal and stunning cobalt blue glass where then chosen for the ocean colours, becoming darker and running in that sequence. While the bead is being made the glass is twisted with a tool to produce a beautiful swirling pattern, which depicts the crashing waves found at sea.
Each Nalu Bead is individually hand made so please expect each bead to have variations in colour and pattern, this is what makes your Nalu Bead unique!
