If you remember when I was in Port Kelang, Malaysia back in December, there was a weird smoke smell in the air. With the number of factories nearby it wasn't too surprising.
So when a special little package from Princess Cruises made its way to me on the Royal Princess today, I was quite excited.
You know I like my Ocean Medallion™ accessories. I've used the metal clip and the plastic clip. I've used the sports band. And now I'm using a brand-spankin' new band for my Medallion.
Made from ocean recycled plastics.
Yep, you heard me right. Princess has created the first wearable accessory in the world made from 100% ocean plastics.
100% recycled from all kinds of plastics collected from the coastlines and oceans. The plastic casing holding the Medallion is made from hard plastics like shampoo bottles and plastic containers.
And the wrist band? Two water bottles removed from the ocean are combined into fabrics to make one wrist band.
|Can't tell it's from recycled water bottles, can you?|
Thanks to Princess, I'm the first guest on a ship outside of Australia to get to try it out. There's so much more to tell you about it, but here's the shortened version:
I'll be using it for this seven day cruise and will let you know how it works out. I'll also work on finding out more details of when we can find these showing up for purchase on the MedallionClass™ ships in the US.
|Such an exciting development for Ocean Medallion accessories!|
If you have any questions about it, let me know and I’ll work on finding the answers. (I’m still learning about this new product myself!)
