Today (April 22nd) is Earth Day. Launched in 1970, Earth Day has helped to bring together over 190 countries and more than 1 billion individuals, as part of this modern environment movement. Focused on transformational change, Earth Day is designed to help us understand how we are all accountable for our role in the ongoing environmental crisis, and looks to drive change through energy, enthusiasm and commitment to creating a new plan of action for our planet.
At LifestyleGarden® we are proudly committed to playing a positive role in protecting the planet, and to placing the spotlight on responsible manufacturing and material innovation. So today, and every day, we want to uphold the values of Earth Day and ask you to join us on this journey!
Future-proofing our planet- how LifestyleGarden® is blending sustainable practices with the ultimate in style and performance
1. FSC™ Teak
Teak remains one of the world’s most desired species of wood. With its rich golden-brown hues and ability to resist the weather, teak’s rustic beauty ensures that this beautiful timber never goes out of fashion. LifestyleGarden® is proud to only use teak that is FSC-certified, meaning it’s grown in responsibly-managed plantations – while teak is also sourced and recycled from structures on the island of Java, taking sustainability to a whole new level.
Like the new Social Plastic collection and DuraOcean®, Duresin® has been created to showcase the fantastic ‘green’ uses of plastic. The material features a unique formulation of 100% virgin polypropylene without fibre glass and contains no harmful chemicals. Each Duresin® piece can be recycled without waste or damage to the environment and is injection moulded in order to create hard-wearing, recyclable and maintenance-free products. Once injected into the mould and formed, polypropylene and composite polypropylene are extremely durable, creating long-lasting furniture with UV resistance, which only requires soap and water to maintain a long-lasting look.
3. Aluminum & Duracoat®
Aluminum offers the latest in contemporary style and the great news is that all LifestyleGarden® aluminum furniture is fortified and protected with Duracoat®. Not only does this multi-layer, oven-cured powder coating offer sophisticated appeal, but it provides a high-class finish that’s resistant to the worst that British weather can throw at it. Cast aluminum in the Portals range is manufactured using die-casting technology, allowing for ergonomic design and the creation of unique shapes. The result is supremely weather-resistant and lightweight aluminum frames, protected by Duracoat®, to ensure that furniture stands the test of time.
4. Rope and textiles
It’s easy to create a stunning outdoor space with LifestyleGarden®’s Rope – a premium-quality material made from olefin yarn, which combines strength with high performance. Handwoven by skilled craftsmen, LifestyleGarden®’s rope holds the latest in contemporary appeal. Finally, LifestyleGarden®’s fabrics collection ticks all the boxes: excellent weather-resistance, durability in all climates, easily cleaned and maintained, with a premium appearance that resembles woven linen fabric.
