The Reasons Why We Love Recycled Garden Furniture...
When we think of recycling, we often assume that it is just putting some plastic bottles into a separate bin in the kitchen, right? Well, there is so much more to recycling than you might think! There are so many advantages to recycling which are beneficial economically and socially within society. As we live in a consumer-driven environment, our vision can become clouded with the issues that are arising around climate change and mass-producing waste. So, you might be wondering where garden furniture comes into this? In this blog post, we will delve into the ins and outs of recycling and why it is important for us to keep our planet protected one milk container at a time!
Why is recycling important?
Recycling is the best way to make a drastic change to our planet and to tackle many environmental issues such as climate change and greenhouse gas emissions. As plastic waste has not been sourced from raw materials, this cuts down the energy far less due to the absence of mining, quarrying, and logging for alternative resources.
What is more, upcycling plastic waste in large quantities allows businesses and factories to save expenses as it is six times cheaper to discard recycled waste than domestic rubbish. The main important reason for recycling is how we can ethically source and create new products to use without the danger of harming ecosystems and wildlife. With that said, recycling plastic waste will conserve natural sources, without the fear of harming or endangering any natural habitats.
What recycled materials are used to manufacture garden furniture?
Fundamentally, the best plastic that is used for constructing garden furniture is synthetic resin due to its light weight and strong structure as well as its economical and low-cost value! This plastic waste can range from anything you would recognise in your household from crisp packets to bottle caps to grocery bags!
Finding ways to produce products from plastic waste is the way forward to tackle the ever-present issue of climate change and cutting down greenhouse gasses. Since we only use plastic packaging only once before throwing it away, this means that the levels of waste are climbing within landfills and as such these do not break down or biodegrade quick enough. The percentage of waste which we produce is 75% recyclable, meaning that it is easy for us to reuse this waste to create something sustainable and practical.
