Never break a clothes peg again

The NONA ultra-durable, recycled ocean plastic clothes peg is not only preventatively eco-friendly and socially responsible, its sturdy, mono-form shape is practically unbreakable. 

Made in the UK and built to withstand exposure to extreme weather and prolonged sunlight, NONAs have no moving parts, are durable, dependable, and long-lasting. If they don’t outlast you, just recycle them at the end of its life.

Why we love NONA

Not only are NONA pegs are super stylish, and practically unbreakable, the team are so concerned about environmental impacts, they are doubling down on their own impact. By offsetting twice the amount of carbon emissions from production and shipping, their products are now climate-positive. Through their partnership with ON A MISSION they are investing a portion of their sales into responsible reforestation projects.

About Ocean Plastic

Ocean Plastic is a huge source of pollution.

– Every year 8 million metric tonnes of plastic enters the worlds oceans, it is estimated by 2050 ocean plastic will outweigh fish 

– Oceans are already filled with about 165 million tons of plastic (and that has recently been challenged as a modest estimate)

– Microplastics have been found in just about every corner of the planet

– More than 640,000 tonnes of nets, lines, pots and traps used in commercial fishing are dumped and discarded in the sea every year, the same weight as 55,000 double-decker buses.

NONA take discarded ocean plastic, clean, shred and mould into the NONA Recycled Ocean Plastic Clothes Peg. You can read more about the process here.
