Benefits of Choosing Eco-Friendly Outdoor Furniture.

Making a choice that is kinder to our planet is only the tip of the iceberg of the benefits of buying eco-friendly outdoor furniture. Although it will usually cost more upfront, quality furniture made from sustainable materials is often a more financially friendly decision in the long run.

Choosing an eco-friendly design starts with looking for furniture that is durable and built to last. Buy timeless pieces that you would want to keep for 10 years or more. When you are ready for something new, perhaps you could offer your old setting to a friend or family member to enjoy.

In the past, people have been in the habit of buying landfill-type products and being quite disposable with them, but now there is a whole lot more mindfulness around things lasting outdoors in the elements.

Natural materials are gradually becoming the common preference for high end outdoor furniture, both for their ability to withstand harsh Australian weather conditions and for their aesthetic appeal. Most of our collections have a very earthy and organic style that fits in well in an outdoor setting.

Researching the source of the furniture’s materials will tell you a lot about its environmental impact. A large range of our contemporary outdoor pieces are made from A grade teak grown in sustainably managed plantations in Java. It takes an impressive 50 years to grow a teak tree to a usable size.

Teak is an incredibly hard timber, so if you maintain your teak furniture you could easily get 10 to 20 years out of it. Treating your outdoor furniture with care makes a huge difference in keeping it long term. Just like a car, there is upkeep required to ensure its longevity.
