    Recycled Plastic Products: How do we do it?

    This is a question I get asked all the time! This process isn't easy but anything worth doing isn't easy! We are firm believers that using "waste" plastic and turning it into something new, shiny, & fashionable is why we are here! Yes, it's cheaper to use virgin plastic but for Crann, it's not "all about the money" to quote that famous line from Tom Cruise. It's about making a small difference one product at a time! For the team here at Crann, that's what it's all about.

     

    So let's dive into how we do it

    01

     

    SORT
