This innovative outdoor dining set is made from recycled ocean plastic – and are available exclusively from the Eden Project.
The four carver chairs are made from recycled fishing nets combined with eucalyptus wooden legs, whilst the table is made from sustainably sourced eucalyptus wood. Sleek design, ideal for balconies and suitable for four people.
Our planet is facing a plastic pollution crisis. Each year we produce 300 million tonnes of plastic waste – that’s nearly the same weight as the entire world population. Predictions show that unless something is done to reduce this, we will have created four times as much plastic waste by 2050.
It’s a well-known fact that much of this plastic waste ends up in our oceans, about eight million tonnes in fact – that’s enough to circle the earth 425 times. Each year this ‘ocean plastic’ is killing in excess of 100,000 marine creatures, and by 2050 there could be more plastic than fish calling the ocean its home. However, there is help at hand. Initiatives such as ocean circular recovery projects are helping to raise awareness and encourage consumers to take responsibility for local ocean clean-up operations. But what happens to the ocean plastic that is recovered?
Tackling a worldwide issue, LifestyleGarden® presents the DuraOcean® chair, an innovative product development that is breaking new ground by utilising ocean plastic waste such as recycled fishing nets, ropes and debris collected from the oceans, to create the world’s first commercially available chair made with ocean debris, setting the benchmark for sustainable material usage and design.
What is DuraOcean?
It is an innovative product development with recycled fishing nets, rope and plastic waste collected from the ocean, as part of an ocean circular recovery project.
The Ocean Collection is designed for disassembly, meaning that the design allows each component in its purest form to recycle into new production circles.
What is inside the DuraOcean chair?
This chair is 100% made with recycled plastics originating from marine debris and mainly consist of fishing nets that have been safely removed from the ocean, cleaned and turned into this beautiful chair.
Is this chair recyclable?
Yes, this chair is fully recyclable, after use you can dispose of this chair at a green point station near your home. Most countries have these stations available; as an alternative, you can also leave the plastic bucket on the container for plastic bottles.
Can I choose my colour for DuraOcean?
No. DuraOcean is made from marine debris and therefore the colour palette available is limited to the colour and composition of the debris found, which is normally green, blue and occasionally brown.
