Of all the casual dining places along Jackson Street in Petone, NZ, there’s one that really stands out. The ever-popular Go Bang Café recently upgraded its outdoor seating, using standard Metal Art table and seat framing topped by Replas recycled-plastic slats.
Designed with a mixture of profile sizes and colours that nicely match the café’s existing decor, Go Bang’s new seating is an innovative recycled-plastic solution that has people talking. ‘Every morning when we put the tables and seats out, passers-by ask about the material used,’ says Go Bang staff member Sophie. ‘We like explaining they are made from recycled plastic.’
For Go Bang's owner Jason Hall, it’s a win-win. ‘We get a lot of good comments from our customers, and staff are proud of the bit they are doing for the environment.’ The equivalent of 6,900 two-litre milk bottles went into the furniture that now adorns Jackson Street outside Go Bang Cafe.
