We have designed Tidey tide clock with the environment front of mind, and are doing our best to keep our environmental impact as low as we can. The main construction of Tidey is from recycled bioplastic and recycled cardboard. The plastic is recycled PLA – a plant-based plastic which is biodegradable (not home-compostable). We also will take back Tidey’s for recycling if they have reached the end of their useful life.
The USB cable we supply is made from wheat-grass bio plastic and is also biodegradable. We do not supply USB plugs to power Tidey as we believe that many people already have spares of these and can therefore source and re-use their own.
The electricity that has gone into the production of Tidey (from laser-cutting to coffee making) is from renewables.
