What Is Our Playground Equipment Made of?

Now more than ever it’s important for businesses to address the need for both recyclable and recycled materials in the manufacturing of products. Within the UK, the government have created a 25 year environment plan which aims to have zero avoidable waste by 2050 and eliminating avoidable plastic waste by the end of 2042 (1).

Following this, we have increased the amount of playground equipment that contains recycled materials. From recycled plastic to rubber granules made from recycled tyres for our wet pour surfacing, our playground equipment not only encourages creative play but it’s also environmentally friendly.

Playground Equipment:
