Our Sustainable Picnic Plates - Oceanic Plates - Set of 6
Your guests will be amazed by the entrancing colours in our set of Oceanic Plates. Their smooth surfaces and intricate details make them a beautiful addition to any feast, picnic or garden party. We were inspired by the Australian coastline for this stunning design and it's proven itself to be our most popular picnic plate!
The inspiration behind our sustainable picnic plates...
While this mandala plate wasn't the first design in our collection, it's one that resonates with us deeply and our customers agree. Draw your eyes to the centre of this ocean inspired plate and appreciate the intricate details that represent every special and unique part of our seas - from the rock pools filled with seaside treasures to the reefs adorned in corals and anemones to the dark blue waves that carry dolphins, whales and turtles on its tides to the depths of the ocean where jellyfish sway with the currents. Our ocean is a piece of art.
Our picnic plates - The story behind the art
It was our dream to create a mandala plate that not only represents this ocean inspired beauty but for our customers to be able to bring a little piece of the deep blue into their homes. The Oceanic Plate is a daily reminder that our wide, open earth is a precious and fragile place that needs our protection.
These beautiful mandala plates have already spread to many corners of the earth and our customers and community are raving about the way they add life to their feasts and homes.
Wondering how our sustainable picnic plates are created?
We use non-toxic pens to fill the black template in and for this Oceanic Plate, we decided to use different hues of blue, green and purple to create the desired ocean effect. This particular plate took a total of 13 hours to design and complete so you can only imagine the focus and intricacy of details that went into its creation.
We then send our designs off to an Australian owned company who run their entire factory off solar power and use recycled packaging to send their orders out. While these plates are made from melamine, we've weighed up their impact and the fact that they're unbreakable and fade resistant, means that they'll last a lifetime, therefore becoming sustainable in their ability to perform their duty time and time again without waste.
Sustainable shipping & packaging - From Sophia. to you...
From there, we use Sendle - an Australian owned courier company which are entirely carbon neutral. They ensure this by partnering with South Pole Group to offset the emissions from every parcel that is picked up and delivered by Sendle. They are currently supporting conservation projects in the Annya State Forest.
Not only are our parcels sent carbon neutral, but here at Sophia. we also remove one hundred pieces of rubbish from our waterways and bushland on behalf of each customer and plant one tree for each shipment.
