Recycled Plastic Outdoor Furniture
The demand for Recycled plastic outdoor furniture is continuing to grow. This is partly due to the fact that in 2022, more people are considering plastic as a financially and environmentally beneficial outdoor furniture option. And with enough plastic to circle the earth four times being thrown away each year, it comes as no surprise that its use as a furniture material is becoming more popular than ever.
Can furniture be made from recycled plastic?
Not only can furniture be made from recycled plastic, but the use of plastic to create outdoor furniture also comes with many benefits.
The benefits surrounding recycled furniture have made plastic become a favourable choice in comparison to its more traditional counterparts, such as wood.
For example, recycled plastic outdoor furniture lasts at least 5 times longer than treated wood. This is thanks to the fact Recycled Plastic doesn’t rot, crack, or splinter. As a result, you will find that these products are highly durable and weatherproof.
Due to its high durability, plastic recycled furniture can last at least 25 years! Its extremely hard wearing and its weatherproof properties mean minimal damage will be caused by the elements over the years. Both of these admirable attributes also result in outdoor furniture that is low maintenance. As a result, investing in recycled plastic outdoor furniture, in comparison to wood, works out to be cheaper in the long run due to the extremely low maintenance costs and long life span.

Approximately a single ton of recycled plastic saves 23 cubic meters of space in a landfill, 3114 litres of oil and 20,786 megajoules of electricity. With sustainability becoming a more popular topic, it comes as no surprise that the use of recycled products has become more and more common.
