The ashortwalk Tide Clock is made from 25 recycled vending machine cups each. This new innovative material has a lovely solid, heavy, quality feel much like slate. Synchronised to the moon's daily cycle, the tide clock gives you an innovative and convenient guide to tides. Simply set the hand to the full tide position at exactly high tide for your chosen location, then throw away your tide table! The quartz driven hand will rotate every 12 hours and 25 minutes around the recycled coffee cup fascia, giving you the state of the tide at a glance. This design also provides an indication of how many hours remain until high or low water. Measures 200 x 200mm. Wall mounted and provided with a full guarantee.
The entire 'ashortwalk Recycled Range' are hand crafted in the UK and made from vending machine coffee cups direct from the national Save-A-Cup scheme; providing unique, clean, beautiful products that seek to improve both our home and global environment.
At work buy one vended cup of coffee today, drink the coffee, place the plastic cup in the recycling bin, and see the time on your wall clock or sundial - made from plastic cups - the next week. The recycling loop has been closed.
Ashortwalk was recently shortlisted in the category 'Green Products and Services' for the Green Business Awards 2011.
