Costa Nova embraces sustainability with Plano

My Gifts Trade and ECP Design will present a spectacular range of home and tableware across a number of different brands at Spring Fair 2020 (Hall 8 Stand C60-C71; B70-C71), including the brand new Plano collection by Costa Nova.

Produced from the surplus materials of Costa Nova’s own factory in Portugal, Plano is the first recycled collection launched by the iconic European tableware brand.

All Costa Nova collections are reusable and can be recycled but Plano goes even further, demonstrating that first class tableware can be directly produced in an eco-friendly way using recycled materials, without compromising either the function or aesthetics of the product.

The Plano style has a distinctive organic shape, combining raw and rustic charm with a clean, strong look. Evocative of traditional, hand-turned studio pottery, these beautifully unique pieces are manufactured to a very high standard and designed to enhance unforgettable moments at the table.

With sustainability running so high on the world’s agenda and high in consumers’ minds, the impeccable eco-friendly credentials of this beautiful new collection are sure to be an important selling point for stockists.

The collection is manufactured of Eco-Gres®, a registered trademark. Products under this label are guaranteed to be made of non-hazardous recycled materials, derived from ceramic surplus and other additives. They are guaranteed to be food-safe, complying with International Standards and in line with European directives 2006/12/CE and 2008/98/CE, which are oriented toward transforming the EU into a ‘recycling society’.

Costa Nova is dedicated to designing and manufacturing tableware and accessories made of fine stoneware from the best natural resources in Portugal. With a manufacturing drive towards emission reductions, sustainability and recyclable packaging, these beautiful products for the home are not only on trend, they’re also helping the drive to make our planet a greener one.

My Gifts Trade is the exclusive distributor of Costa Nova in the UK. Also on display on their stand at the show will be the latest exclusive licensed collections from top British brands including Sara Miller London, I Like Birds, Yvonne Ellen and Emily Brooks.
