We know it’s winter and you’re cuddled up indoors, but now is the perfect opportunity to start preparing your outdoor entertainment space for summer. Many retailers have specials and promotions during the winter months, so keep an eye out. When considering which outdoor furniture to buy, we highly recommend investing in furniture that is eco-friendly. Here are the top benefits of eco-friendly outdoor furniture.


Furniture made from recycled plastic is extremely durable with an average lifespan of 60 years.


Cost Effective

Eco furniture is usually significantly cheaper than solid wood furniture, as it is not as labour intensive to make. There is no painting or treatment necessary, as the material used is recycled plastic.

Maintenance Free

Eco friendly furniture is not prone to rot or algae growth, so you do not need to maintain it.


Less Flammable

Most recycled plastic products are difficult to ignite, which means that these products are not a fire risk.


Insect Resistant

Recycled plastic products are resistant to damage caused by termites, wood borra, and other destructive insects.

Weather Resistant

Recycled plastic is highly resistant to harsh weather conditions when compared to other furniture materials.


Slip and Splinter Resistant

Recycled plastic is moulded to have a non-slip surface that does not splinter like wood does.
