Our laser engraved slate coasters are designed and created by ourselves. Here at eco seed balls we create thoughtful products ensuring each and every one of them would be perfect for yourself or to make a thoughtful and unique gift. 

Our laser engraved slate coaster is a beautiful and unique gift that combines practicality with an aesthetic appeal. The coaster's design is intricately engraved by using a laser beam, creating a crisp and detailed pattern on the slate surface.

Slate, the material used to craft the coaster, is known for being an eco-friendly choice. Here's why:

  1. Natural and Sustainable: Slate is a natural rock formed over millions of years, making it a sustainable material. It is quarried from the earth's surface, leaving minimal environmental impact during extraction. Unlike materials like plastic or metal, slate is not a synthetic or artificially produced substance.

  2. Durable and Long-lasting: Slate is highly durable and long-lasting, meaning the coaster made from it will have a prolonged lifespan. This durability reduces the need for frequent replacement, reducing waste and the production of new coasters.

  3. Renewable Resource: Slate is harvested from quarries, which can be refilled and remain operational for several decades. This practice ensures that the slate used for coaster production is derived from a renewable resource, supporting sustainable harvesting practices.

  4. Minimal Processing: Slate requires minimal processing to convert it into a coaster. It undergoes a simple cutting and polishing process before being ready for use. This minimal processing reduces energy consumption and associated carbon emissions, making it an environmentally friendly choice.

  5. Recyclable: Slate is a natural material that can be recycled once it reaches the end of its life as a coaster. It can be crushed and reused in various construction applications or repurposed for other creative uses, minimizing waste and reducing its impact on landfills.

Choosing an eco-friendly gift, like a laser engraved slate coaster, is a great way to show concern for the environment while still offering a unique and personal present. The sustainability, durability, and recyclability of slate ensure that it remains a responsible and eco-conscious choice for gifting purposes.

Your bee design slate coaster is approximately 10cm x 10cm and 0.85cm deep / 0.8cm deep to include the foot pads underneath.
Each coaster comes neatly tied with jute string. This not only finishes the coaster of just beautifully but also adds to our environmentally friendly ethos.
Jute string is a natural fibre that is extracted from the stem of the jute plant. It is also biodegradable, meaning it can easily decompose in the environment without leaving behind harmful pollutants. Jute production requires less energy and water prepared to the production of synthetic fibres. This results in a lower carbon footprint and a reduced impact on climate change.
