For more than 15 years the communities of South Gippsland Shire, Victoria have shown their green credentials as fantastic supporters of recycled plastic products. Take for instance the Replas Daintree Seats that you see throughout the district when visiting or passing through. And while this street furniture looks like it was installed just last month, when it comes to recycled plastic looks can be deceiving. Some of these seats have been supporting people for many years.
Durability and low-to-no-maintenance, that’s the beauty of recycled plastic. But wait, there’s more. It is extra satisfying to know that soft plastic waste collected through Coles Supermarkets has been utilised as a valuable resource, recycled into highly-functional furniture and other products. Instead of being shipped offshore or buried as landfill.
