Members Statement - Somerside


Wednesday, 18 March 2020

Mr NEWBURY (Brighton) (9:49):

SomerSide produces lifestyle towels which are made from 85 per cent recycled plastic bottles. Each towel contains up to 14 bottles.

After taking up surfing 25-year-old Gabby Samkova from Brighton East noticed how polluted the water was with plastic. She created the company SomerSide as a way to help reduce plastic in our oceans.

Her initial Kickstarter campaign saw 350 customers across 37 countries back her incredible initiative.
