Remarkable extends retail contract with the Eden Project

Eco-manufacturer Remarkable has extended its retail contract with the Eden Project by stocking a larger range of products in-store featuring its re-launched packaging range, made from recycled drinks bottles and card.

Remarkable has been stocking its recycled products in the gift shop since the attraction first opened. Items include pencils made from recycled CD cases, pencil cases and mouse mats made from recycled tyres, and geometry sets made from biodegradable corn starch.

Eden Project Gift Shop buyer, Tammy Barclay said that sourcing attractive products that are recycled or made from natural and sustainable products are high on her agenda, and described the Remarkable brand as "a perfect fit" for the Eden Project.

Remarkable's eco-manufacturing process is housed in a 30,000 sq ft old red brick factory in Worcester, powered by renewable energy. The company employs 30 members of staff and recycles over 10 tonnes of UK materials every week.

This latest retail success is another milestone for Remarkable. Founder and inventor Ed Douglas Miller said: "One of the greatest goals of Remarkable is to keep raising environmental awareness, continuing to innovate and create stylish products while inspiring others to start making small everyday changes."
