Recycled or recyclable plastic street furniture
First and foremost, recycled recyclable plastic street furniture offers a wide choice. Whether it is in shapes or colours, this material allows the greatest fantaisies. Nevertheless, this synthetic material does not have a good reputation. Especially from an environmental point of view. In order to overcome that, here is what we developed:
- Flower pots, planters and flowerboxes are made with recyclable plastic
- Planting liners are only made with recycled plastic
Thus, the idea was to offer you plastic equipments, while respecting sustainable development. For that, we made the choice of polyethylene. This one present a double ability. The first one is that the raw material can come from recycled plastic. Consequently, no added resource is needed for its creation. But it only concerns planting liners. In a second time, they are recyclable. Because we are aware that the plastic waste management is a main concern, it was necessary to consider the product end-of-life.
For recyclable plastic, we offer a wide range of colours. Indeed, between neutral, pastel, “textured” or bright colours, there are about twenty possibilities.
Recyclable plastic street furniture assets
The first asset of plastic street furniture is the absence of maintenance. Indeed, this material doesn’t need to be treated in any way. Yet, maintenance cost are a variable to consider by cities.
The second asset lies in its multiple possibilities with shapes and colours. Let’s not forget that today, aesthetic is essential whether it is for outddor furniture or for street equipment. Then, street furniture must be beautiful, robust, comfortable and sustainable.
We mainly use plastic for greening spaces. Consequently, an other asset, needed for their function, is that it facilitates plants growth.
Finally, the cost of the material, brought to its longevity, makes a great quality/price ratio.
Recyclable plastic street furniture drawbacks
The main bias on this material, is the discolouration due to sunlight. Indeed, UV radiation has a bleaching effect and it can be detrimental to some colours. With that in mind, we considered that hypothesis and we offer you an upstream tretment. Then, plastic street furniture is treated with a anti-UV filter.
We considered plastic furniture like other materials such as wood or proposed metal (steel, corten, aluminium, stainless steel, zinc). In other words, we transpose our know-how and ethic through plastic. We wanted it robust and resistant. But, also, modern with our visual identity. Plastic allows you to, then, access outstanding shapes and sizes of products with an attractive price.
