Where we stand

We have been hiring a studio space in Brighton since the summer of 2018, where we collect the plastic, sort it, and create our products. The portable speaker electronic components are clicked together, and are being tested to ensure the components we use last the test of time. 

The speakers are all good to go, and we will be looking to order the internal components in bulk to begin production.

As for the portable charger, the electronics are finalised, and we are awaiting for our shiny new aluminium moulds to arrive, where we can make the casing from our marbley plastic material!

Charging working properly on our first prototype with lower capacity.

We have now sent the new prototype to be printed with the larger capacity batteries. We will be looking to order the new electronics with the money helped raise by you!

Prototype 1 with the old board and lower capacity.

The actual portable charger will have capacity of 20000mAh, thus larger in size compared to the current prototype.

Risks and challenges

In doing this project, we aim to stop over 500kg of plastic entering landfill sites and the ocean, this will require a process of collecting, sorting, and melting a huge amount of plastic! Thankfully, we are working with many local companies who cannot wait to have a sustainable way of getting rid of their unrecyclable waste - so we are confident that we can work together to ensure all of this plastic is redirected back into our workshop as simply as possible!

We are also committed to hand crafting all of the marbled patterns ourselves in our Brighton workshop, which requires us to work long shifts in order to get the artisan finish we are striving towards. We appreciate this does make the cost more pricey, but we hope that the finished products are so desirable that this is worth the extra pounds!

We aim to delivery a few months before the delivery dates and have given ourselves plenty of time to ensure that we can get the products out to you before the mentioned time.
