The 2018 Maleny State School Student Council chose Replas furniture as their donation to the school. They were very excited when the recycled plastic Buddy Bench from Replas arrive and was put into place. The Buddy Bench is a recycled plastic seat ‘welcoming space’ for any school to help foster friendship to any playground area. Students who feel alone or in need of a friend quickly learn it is a great place to meet up with others and make new friends. Made from durable and sustainable material, the Buddy Bench not only helps the environment, but may also help change the culture at a school. Maleny students were proud to show off the fact that they chose to make use of recycled plastic in this way in their own unique piece.
