One Man’s Waste Can be Another Man’s Treasure

Did You Know

Every 20 benches we manufacture saves landfills from approximately 1 ton of plastic

  • We use plastic in our products that other recyclers cannot process
  • The material used in our recycled plastic furniture resists bacterial growth
  • The furniture will not absorb liquid and can be high-pressure washed or steam cleaned
  • There are no splinters in the material to damage in transit and cause injuries to handlers
  • Our recycled plastic furniture demonstrates our care for the environment by saving trees and saving landfills from plastic
  • The recycled material we use is non bio-degradable industrial waste which would have ended up in a landfill so our products are environmentally, much more sound.
  • There are no colourants or tints added which weakens the material and will eventually fade and flake.
