Recycled Plastic Furniture
When we think of outdoor furniture, we tend to think of wood. But there’s a much more sustainable alternative, and it’s made of recycled plastic. Recycled plastic is great for outdoor furniture because it’s durable and robust, plus it can be moulded or formed into all kinds of shapes and styles so you can find exactly what you want at a reasonable price.
- Despite the negative focus on waste plastics in recent years, plastic is a highly recyclable material.
- Plastic furniture is durable and robust.
- It’s easy to maintain and keep clean, too!
Are you looking for eco-friendly furniture? Try plastic furniture! Our plastic chairs, tables, benches and even dog agility items are all made from a range of recycled materials including sweet tubs, food containers and car bumpers. They’re made using a process called flow moulding that melts the plastic to form ‘planks’ which can then be used to build a wide range of useful, high-quality products. Plastic furniture is extremely durable and will last for many years. It’s easy to maintain and keep clean, too!
The great thing about recycled furniture is that you don’t have to worry about constant cleaning and stain removal. The recycled plastics we use are resistant to water absorption, meaning it stands up to dirt or liquids far better than wood, and there is no need for any added protection such as paint or varnish.
Plastic is a much denser material than wood, making it heavier and much more robust. Therefore it will stand up to the rigours of everyday use much better, and will be much less likely to be dented or damaged.
No splintering, cracking, chipping or peeling
Plastic is a highly durable material that is well-suited for making outdoor furniture for our temperate climate here in the UK, and the mild, wet weather we enjoy (or endure) will not affect the quality or appearance of the product. Unlike wood, it will not absorb moisture, will not become discoloured and rot, it will not splinter, warp or crack, and it is impervious to insects that often enjoy eating wooden products. We also add in a UV stabiliser to our plastics to give it added protection from fading.
A great choice for outdoor furniture
If you’re looking for outdoor furniture, plastic may be the better way to go. Plastic is more durable than wood and can withstand exposure to the elements better than other materials without the need for expensive and time-consuming protective treatments (which are not good for the planet). It’s also resistant to mould and mildew, splintering and cracking, and it’s easy to clean with soap and water!
Plastic is a great choice for outdoor furniture because it’s durable, strong and resilient As it is weatherproof, you won’t need to spend your time maintaining it every year, leaving you more time to relax in your garden. Furthermore, you can feel happy in the knowledge that you’re are doing the right thing for the environment by buying sustainable products, manufactured locally from recycled plastics, which helps keep carbon emissions as low as possible.
