Go green with recycled ties from James Morton

Do you like the sound of ties made from recycled plastic bottles?

Here at James Morton, we want to reduce our carbon footprint and produce sustainable products whilst making sure the quality and durability of our bespoke products is not compromised, that’s why we have recently developed recycled ties – Eco-friendly Ties.

Eco-friendly ties are made using waste plastic; although a product that is indispensable in many everyday uses plastic is a scourge on our environment. Plastic takes over 1,000 years to degrade – causing growing concerns regarding landfill and food chain pollution.

Did you know?

  • In the UK alone, approximately 450 plastic bottles are used each year per household and only 50% of those bottles used are ever recycled.
  • Approximately 13 billion plastic bottles are used in the UK each year, this consumes 912 million gallons of oil

By creating recycled ties we are putting waste plastic to good use, whilst reducing degrading plastics on our land and in our oceans. The plastic bottles used to create the ties are put through a recycling process. The bottles are ground down into flakes that are then spun into excellent quality, high performance recycled polyester yarn. Each tie saves 2 plastic bottles from landfill.

Many regular ties are third party manufactured overseas and shipped thousands of miles impacting the carbon footprint however our Eco-friendly Ties are manufactured right here in the UK!

The quality of our recycled ties is second to none; we use extra stitching for long durability and make our ties to fit different age ranges. Our design team are here to work with you, free of charge, in creating a new tie or replicating a current one in an environmentally friendly way. Alternatively, you can use our online design tool.
