At Street and Park Furniture we aim to create a culture encouraging environmental sensitivity. We strive to reduce the impact of our industry through sustainable practices; currently our cast products are produced using recycled materials which can also be recycled. We also offer our clients a variety of recycled or certified timbers or the option of using recycled plastics or composite materials.
In addition to the above Street and Park strive to make sure all printed literature is environmentally friendly. Our specifiers manual is encased in a plastic that uses 40% recycled polypropylene and the pages within the manual uses 100% recycled paper. It is also printed using digital print technology, a waterless, waste reducing and energy efficient process.
Our A5 fold out custom brochures and ready reckners are made using ecoStar. ecoStar is an environmentally responsible paper made carbon neutral (CN) and the fibre source has been independently certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). ecoStar is manufactured from 100% post consumer recycled paper in a process chlorine free environment under the ISO 14001 environmental management system which guarantees continuous improvement.
Recycled timber is something that a lot of our clients are interested in, and our Shoreline Range uses recycled jarrah as a standard. Street and Park support the use of recycled timbers, based on an environmental stand point but also for its aesthetic purposes. Using a material as characteristic as a recycled timber can give a great feeling and look to the product, with visible nail and bolt holes. Street and Park Furniture have a high quality standard and make sure we always supply only the best of what the product has to offer, but also fit the material so the least effected side is visible.
Street and Park also give clients the option of branding their recycled timber with a plaque, so the public can see this material is recycled. It shows to the public that the developer/council are environmentally conscious, and are looking at ways of making their street furniture sustainable.
