So What is freep?
The freep project was born to help us reboot our understanding of the materials we encounter in our daily lives. How do we choose to keep us hydrated? What touches our face when we choose to clean it? We love coffee what is its impact to the environment? How do we stock up food either on our shelves or in our stomach? And what do we consider necessary to bring along when we leave our house?
300 million plastic coffee cups per year are estimated to be used in Greece ( which means 11 cups per second) excluding paper cups, which are not recyclable due to their plastic coating
For all these questions we had, we tried to find an answer with freep. We are slowly getting into a new plastic-free, package-free, pollution-free age. Freep has as a goal to help your transition to this exciting era in an easy and happy manner, and to indulge you to try how small but important changes can effect your life and the world you live in.
Give yourselves the chance to re-experience materials like wood, bamboo, cotton, fibers and steel. You will find all these qualities such as hard, soft, warm and cold in the philosophy of every product we offer that combines exceptional design with environmental consciousness. Start freeping today and enter with joy and optimism the plastic free era.

In Greece, only 8% of plastic waste is recycled due to low sorting rates, difficulties in recovering plastic from mixed waste streams and limited recycling infrastructure. Most of the waste (84%) ends up in landfills.
A new study finds on average people could be ingesting approximately 5 grams of plastic every week, which is the equivalent weight of a credit card. Coming mostly from tap and especially bottled water, nearly invisible bits of polymer were also found in shellfish, beer and salt, scientists and the University of Newcastle in Australia reported.
