Sunday 5th June 2016 marked World Environment Day; a day that is especially prevalent and important to us here at NBB Recycled Furniture. We always want to raise awareness for the importance of looking after our planet and especially when it comes to encouraging recycling. Recycling our unwanted waste is one of the easiest and most effective ways to reduce our carbon footprint and impact on the environment. It is something that we can all do in our daily lives that can make a significant difference, along with making smarter and environmentally friendly choices when choosing new products.
Purchasing one of our standard picnic tables saves over 2500 plastic milk containers from being sent into landfill, and uses 66% less energy than is used in virgin plastic production, so is a more sustainable option than buying ordinary plastic furniture. Switching to recycled plastic is also more sustainable than opting for traditional timber furniture, as it saves trees from being cut down, and recycled plastic does not need any chemical treatment or maintenance.
There are so many benefits to choosing recycled plastic; it’s the more sustainable and greener alternative to traditional materials, as well as being extremely strong and durable. Our furniture stands up to the test of time and comes with guarantees of up to 25 years, so you can buy with peace of mind knowing that you won’t have to replace your furniture for many years to come! And when eventually (if ever!) the furniture comes to the end of its life, you can of course recycle the furniture again, thus continuing this sustainable process.
So how you can get involved and help to celebrate World Environment Day? By spreading the recycling love and taking photos of your recycled plastic furniture in action- we’d love to see them! And if you’re yet to take the plunge and switch to a greener alternative, there’s no better time to get on board as we’ve got loads of fantastic deals. Buy 3 of our standard picnic tables for only £945, or 5 of our octagonal picnic tables for just £2225. Are you a school and looking for low cost outdoor seating options? You can buy 5 of our backless benches for the price of 4! After all, we believe that looking after our planet shouldn’t break the bank!
