In the Wellington, New Zealand seaside suburb of Seatoun, the council has fitted a recycled plastic Kimberley seat at a local suburban bus stop. Looking a little lonely out on the footpath, the new in-ground fixed seat nevertheless is a welcome sight to commuters, schoolchildren and shoppers when they need to wait for the bus to town.

This is the first piece of Replas furniture to go into this part of the city. Judging by the feedback from bus passengers it won’t be the last, as Seatoun catches on and rides the recycled plastic wave.
