The importance of using furniture made from recycled materials in outdoor space design.

When furnishing outdoor spaces such as parks, plazas and courtyards, there are benefits to selecting weather-resistant materials such as plastic. But unfortunately when new materials are used to furnish these often large landscapes, valuable resources are wasted and landfills expand.

By utilizing furniture made from recycled plastic as an alternative, cities planners and business owners can reduce waste and follow a sustainable path to designing beautiful and practical outdoor spaces.

Chairs, benches and tables made of recycled plastic provide a clean, modern look and are quite durable compared to non-recycled alternatives. Speed bumps, parking stops, and even trash cans can be constructed of recycled materials, making it easy for decision makers to design responsible landscapes.

Another sustainable furniture solution is eco-friendly bamboo. Bamboo looks like wood but is actually a type of grass. This stylish and strong fiber grows quickly, ensuring harvested bamboo is quickly replaced.

Outdoor spaces can be clean, beautiful, convenient and environmentally-friendly. Consider recycled or sustainable materials when furnishing large landscapes to reduce waste, and preserve our valuable resources.
