“Replas was extremely easy to deal with and their product selection was fantastic. An added bonus was that one of their designs for our Buddy Bench aligned with our school logo! The fact that this was a student led project and the students were engaged from the beginning of the process was fantastic,” said Vanessa Erickson, Thornleigh West Public School P&C President. The recent installation of a Buddy Bench at Thornleigh West Public School in New South Wales has been “extremely positive,” explains Vanessa. “The local paper ran a story about our Buddy Bench and the school community loves the Buddy Bench and what it represents.” The Buddy Bench from Replas creates a welcoming space and helps foster friendships for students who feel alone or in need of a friend. Like all recycled plastic products from Replas, the Buddy Bench will not split, rot, crack or ever need painting. The low maintenance and durability of the seat allows students to enjoy the seat for many years to come. “The quality is amazing and the customer service has been excellent. The fact that the chair is made out of recycled plastic was an extra bonus for the students,” said Vanessa.
