| Best out of Waste Ideas > Others



And so the Pantone Colour of the year is ‘Living Coral’!


Living Coral is dynamic, living coral is vibrant living coral is beautiful! It is a bright shade of orange with a slight pastel undertone of golden yellow. This shade is going to dominate designers’ collections all throughout the year.

Living Coral is a tribute to the coral families found all over the world. Corals, which are prized as a protective stone, are actually small sea animals which live in colonies and form reefs in the tropical sea.  Due to rampant water pollution and climate change coral colonies are dying in scores. This shade is an urgent call to get the world’s attention to conserve this beautiful gift of nature and sustaining them for future generation.
