The importance of ecological materials in contract furniture

When it comes to furniture, ecological materials play a crucial role in reducing environmental impact. Opting for sustainable materials not only helps preserve the planet's natural resources but also contributes to the reduction of carbon emissions and prevention of pollution. In addition, ecological furniture is often manufactured using processes that are more efficient and less aggressive towards the environment, which makes them a responsible, ethical choice.


Ecological alternatives to propylene and newly-manufactured resin

Although propylene and synthetic resin are popular materials in the contract furniture industry, there are more sustainable alternatives that can offer the same aesthetic and functional benefits without compromising the environment. We present our alternative furniture made from post-consumption recycled polypropylene, Garbar Recycled, an ideal solution for establishments that wish to maintain the durability offered by new plastic furniture, but are looking for sustainable, viable manufacturing alternatives. In using recycled plastic, the amount of waste that ends up at the rubbish tip is reduced, promoting circular economy.

Our designs made from ecological materials stand out on the furniture market as they are:

  • Furniture made from post-consumption recycled plastic
  • 100% recycled and 100% recyclable furniture
  • Hard-wearing, functional products
  • Designer pieces


Aspects to bear in mind regarding ecological materials for sustainable furniture

In addition to choosing the appropriate materials, there are other considerations that should be taken into account to select ecological furniture, especially for an establishment:

  • Durability: Opting for quality, durable furniture ensures a longer useful life and avoids the need for frequent replacement, thus reducing waste.
  • Proximity: Giving preference to local and regional suppliers can reduce the carbon footprint associated with the transportation of the furniture.
  • Sustainable manufacturing processes: Investigating and choosing manufacturers committed to sustainable, environmentally-friendly manufacturing practices guarantees that the whole life cycle of the furniture will be responsible.

We are committed to forming part of this change the furniture industry needs. That's why we've designed a new line of contract and functional furniture using ecological, sustainable methods. Some of our most prominent products that are ideal for furnishing indoor and outdoor spaces are our tables and chairs made 100% sustainably from post-consumption recycled plastic.
