Lush Cosmetics are widely known as a 100% vegetarian, ethical buying, animal test fighting, handmade, naked packaging products. Because of their strong sustainable and environmental ethics, they have recently installed two Lyrebird benches from Replas, made from recycled soft plastics. “We had a need for outdoor seating for our staff and with anything we purchase, we look to find a product that aligns with our values and ethics of sustainability. In this case, we saw Replas featured in the War On Waste series and were inspired and keen to support a local manufacturer in their efforts in reusing plastic waste into outdoor furniture,” explained Nellie O’Neill, Business Support Administrator at Lush. “As the benches are placed outdoors, we know we’ll get a good long life out of them, without the worry of them rotting over time as it would with traditional wooden benches and our contractors were surprised by how simple it was to assemble the benches,” Nellie continued. The staff at Lush love the new outdoor benches and the ‘warm and fuzzy’ background story that comes with it. “It’s great to come across local manufactures who are just as passionate about producing high-quality products in a sustainable and environmentally friendly manner,” said Nellie. Durable, long lasting Lyrebird benches from Replas will have a bright future at Lush Cosmetics headquarters in NSW.
