Despite the recent attempts by manufacturers of reducing packaging and encouraging the sale of unpackaged fresh food, plastic continues to be used for many reasons and the only way to make it less harmful to the environment is recycling it.

It was a wonderful discovery to see that more and more companies producing furniture, especially garden and outdoor furniture, are using 100% recycled plastic and that the result is pleasant in appearance, as well as of high quality and functionality. As a matter of fact, recycled plastic does not require a specific maintenance and it perfectly resists weathering. The innovative green plastic material is achieved by using only waste from urban waste collection. Perfect for gardens, it marvellously adapts to indoor spaces as well.

By now, even architects and designers are choosing plastic made from recycled wastes for the furniture for public or private spaces. Look at some examples.
