Since 2003, ashortwalk has been using recycled materials to make gorgeous home and garden products, beginning with tide and time clocks they now offer a wide range of ECO products including house numbers and signs along with stylish tableware. The company started when Dan left his previous job as a product designer/inventor at Dyson and started his own business near Truro, Cornwall so he could live only a short walk from the sea. All of ashortwalk’s products are made from recycled materials such as coffee cups, plant pots and now even paper packaging, the materials that otherwise may not be recycled, and are collected through schemes pioneered by the company.
