Chessington World of Adventures Resort in Greater London has chosen to equip its outdoor spaces with eco-friendly furniture made from 100% recycled plastic. Find out more about this sustainable investment, and if it’s for you, here!
Chessington World of Adventures Resort, part of the Merlin Group, recently launched a sustainability project. Their aim? To look at all aspects of its venue, with a view to drastically reducing the park’s impact on the environment.
Having a need to replace the outdoor furniture throughout the resort, and given the park’s environmental objectives, Sustainability Manager, Jamie Chestnutt, started to research and source eco-friendly outdoor furniture options. He ended up deciding upon NBB Recycled Furniture as the company of choice.
So what is that makes them the choice of one of the best theme parks in the UK?
Benefits of NBB Recycled Furniture and Their Eco-Friendly Furniture
NBB Recycled Furniture is a UK organisation that designs and manufactures stylish eco-friendly garden furniture. The outdoor furniture is made entirely from 100% recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE), the plastic most commonly used to make milk bottles and carrier bags. Once HDPE is recycled, it becomes extremely strong, hard-wearing, and weather resistant.
Furniture made from recycled HDPE will never rot, crack or splinter, making it safer and more hygienic than wooden counterparts. Another major benefit is that NBB Recycled Furniture does not require any annual maintenance. This allows for extensive cost savings to be made for a minimum of 25 years - the guaranteed lifespan of NBB picnic tables and benches.
Furniture that is no longer required can easily be recycled again, ensuring a continuous reduction in plastic pollution which is so critical for the protection of our beautiful planet. These clear benefits are making recycled plastic furniture an extremely popular choice for outdoor venues across the UK.
Why Choose NBB?
Jamie Chestnutt tells why he chose NBB Recycled Furniture for the Chessington World of Adventures Resort:
“We looked at various options for our outdoor furniture and made the decision to go with NBB. The furniture they produce exactly matched our criteria of being attractive, hard-wearing, safe, and environmentally friendly.
“It is our aim to ensure that all guests that visit our theme park feel comfortable, so we have purchased a variety of picnic benches to accommodate the diverse range of guests we have, including larger groups and wheelchair users. It is really pleasing to have found a supplier that can produce the furniture we require so our guests feel welcome, as well as helping us to achieve our environmental goals.”
How Has This Collaboration Helped the Earth?
The initial order of furniture from Chessington World of Adventures Resort was made using over 92,000 plastic milk bottles previously destined for landfill. Since the launch of its recycled furniture range, the NBB organisation is proud to have saved over 27.4 million bottles from polluting the earth.
Chessington World of Adventures Resort are now working closely with NBB on the replacement of their current litter bins with recycled plastic options. NBB Recycled Plastic also offers fencing, bollards, noticeboards, planters, and play equipment on top of its vast range of standard and bespoke outdoor furniture and litter disposal products.
