Alasdair Mitchell said: " We were absolutley thrilled to win the first RHS Chelsea Sustainable Garden Product of the Year Award. As a diver i have seen first hand the impact plastics are having on our Oceans. Ocean Plastic Pots is a company focused on manufacturing with a challenging waste material to deliver innovative products manufactured in the UK. We are working towards a circular economy and to be recognised by the RHS for this is work incredibly humbling."
