An eco-friendly addition to the bathroom, the Buoy Toothbrush Stand is made from ocean plastic hand-collected from the shores of Japan. We think they are like colourful little mountains — bright statements in hues that will match any decor. Each toothbrush holder's gem-like pattern of colours is unique, and there are five hues to choose from, so there's one for every member of the family. To add an extra splash of colour to the bathroom, why not match them with the Buoy soap dish — another of our new favourite Buoy items.
Buoy is on a mission to raise awareness of and help reduce plastic pollution. We love how it has recycled marine waste into charming, colourful and useful homeware. The plastic is collected from beaches all across Japan, with the colours even indicating which regions they were found.
With so many different types of resin, it’s difficult to recycle waste plastic, especially the mix of ocean litter washed up on beaches. Yet Buoy has achieved this without a bonding agent or pigments. Aside from a thin protective coating, Buoy items are made of 100 percent marine plastic waste.

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.
