Maintenance-free and environmentally stable.

Our furniture is made from all weather marine grade recycled HDPE polymers - made from milk and ice cream containers diverted from landfill sites.  The recycled plastic is melted, treated with a UV protector and coloured so that the colour extends right through the product. Then it is extruded slowly and painstakingly into an extremely high grade  all-weather marine grade HDPE Polymer that’s 99% UV stable.

This meticulous process ensures that the product is really exceptionally strong without the bubbles or imperfections that can prove to be weak spots in some recycled plastics. The frames are non-porous and resistant to moisture, fading, insects, splinting and warping, so it is essentially a maintenance-free product. 

Customers concerned about the environment can feel confident they have made a good decision by purchasing our products. Unlike other types of resin and polymers, HDPE is the most environmentally stable, giving off no harmful fumes.

Our products are designed to hold up to all kinds of adverse weather conditions for decades. And when they are finally ready to be replaced, the materials can be recycled again into new useful products.

Here is how the whole recycling cycle works:
