New on the scene for Spring 19…
It’s no secret that there’s a plastic crisis happening and Mother Earth is in danger from plastic waste. Children’s brand Frugi have been tackling the problem by recycling more than half a million plastic bottles to make a brand new enviable outerwear collection, ideal for every wet, muddy and soggy adventure. The handy Packaway Jacket with matching Ready Steady Go bags and wellies, are all made from recycled plastic. The Puddle Buster Suits and Jackets are fully waterproof with taped seams to prevent water entering the pocket, side pockets, reflective prints for safety, a safeguard at the top of the zip to prevent catching little chins and are machine washable because mud doesn’t have to stick! Not only do we love the eco-hero element, but this entire gorgeous collection is perfect attire for all those little April showers and jumping in muddle puddles. RRP from £12 from welovefrugi.com
