The daintiest of our recycled marine plastic Buoy Leaf Trays, the petite Mini Leaf is perfect for framing a favourite piece of jewellery or a tiny trinket that you like to always have close at hand. A little bit more rounded than the Buoy S Tray and cuter than its Medium or Large siblings, it's great on its own, but even better when completing a set.
When we came across Buoy, we admired its dedication to reducing plastic pollution, from organizing its own marine waste collections to inventing a way to meld so many different resins without additives into a new material — a notoriously difficult task. Aside from a protective film coating, Buoy items are made completely from marine waste!
The stunning colour palette of Buoy’s eco-friendly recycled ocean plastic leaf trays also has an environmental story to tell. Each vivid hue indicates which region of Japan the plastic waste used to make an item was acquired.

Based in Yokohama, Buoy is a recycled plastic homeware brand with an unusual aspiration. By recycling marine plastic waste, it aims to contribute to the cleanup of the world’s oceans, with the hope that eventually there will be no plastic pollution to source its material from.
Buoy organizes its own litter collections, and shreds and recycles plastic litter into homeware using a patented process that can meld together different resins. No bonding agent or pigments are added, and its products’ vibrant hues are the result of carefully colour-sorted plastics.
