Chessington World of Adventures chooses eco-friendly furniture
Chessington World of Adventures in Greater London has chosen to equip its outdoor spaces with eco-friendly furniture made from 100% recycled plastic.
The Merlin Group theme park is constantly striving to reduce its global impact on the environment and as such looked at a more sustainable range of picnic benches for its guests. After researching options, the company decided upon NBB Recycled Furniture, a UK organisation that designs and manufactures stunning outdoor furniture made from 100% recycled high-density polyethylene.
Jamie Chestnutt, Sustainability Manager at Chessington states: “We looked at various optionsfor our outdoor furniture and made the decision to go with NBB. The furniture they produce exactly matched our criteria of being attractive, hard-wearing, safe and environmentally friendly.
“It is our aim to ensure that all guests that visit our theme park feel comfortable, so we have purchased a variety of picnic benches to accommodate the diverse range of guests we have, including larger groups and wheelchair users. It is really pleasing to have found a supplier that can produce the furniture we require so our guests feel welcome as well as helping us to achieve our environmental goals.”
Having saved over 92,000 plastic milk bottles from entering landfill sites so far with its choice of outdoor furniture, the park is now working with NBB to replace its existing bins with 100% recycled plastic options.
