vac from the sea
A beautiful end to an inspiring idea. Electrolux decided to clean-up the ocean in a literal way, but using materials from the ocean, and combining them into one-off pieces of beautiful, brightly coloured art pieces. Each of the five pieces represents the five oceans, but sadly, these will not be available from any store.
Don’t expect to find these one-off vacuums in stores–an Electrolux press release claims that “the quality and the logistics needed for cleaning and sorting ocean plastic makes it difficult to use in mass production.” The vacuums are intended to raise awareness of the amount of trash scattered throughout the ocean–and of Electrolux’s new range of UltraOne Green vacuum cleaners.
