This Global Recycling Day (March 18th), LifestyleGarden® – one of the UK’s most exciting outdoor furniture manufacturers – has its eye firmly set on a more sustainable future with the launch of its new Nassau® offering, powered by Social Plastic® from Plastic Bank.
13.2 million bottles rebirthed in 2022
Not only will every Nassau chair be made from the equivalent of 175 recycled plastic bottles, but the range is already committed to utilizing the equivalent of 13.2million bottles (or 264,000kgs) in its first year. That’s a lot of plastic! However, the impact of the Nassau collection – launched in collaboration with the Eden Project once again – goes further than vital environmental protection. In a true industry first, this collection will also close the loop by positively impacting the social and economic communities within the Plastic Bank supply chain through the use of Social Plastic®. Put simply Social Plastic® is ethically recovered plastic that helps local collectors in vulnerable coastal communities gain access to stable income and basic family necessities, whilst also working to help to eliminate ocean plastic pollution.

About Nassau – powered by Social Plastic®
This incredible new collection of chairs and tables (from RRP £299) has been created in a uniquely sustainable way by using ethically recycled Social Plastic® from Plastic Bank, part of an exciting long-term partnership between the two brands. And, what a partnership it shall be, with both parties perfectly aligned in their vision to create a world without waste, further building on similar partnerships such as that with the Eden Project and the ground-breaking DuraOcean® chair.
What is Social Plastic®?
Simply put, Social Plastic® is ethically recovered plastic that helps fight ocean pollution, whilst simultaneously improving the lives of those who collect it.
The collected plastic waste is washed, flaked, and goes through a recycling process, where it is then pelletized and integrated into products and packaging as part of a closed-loop supply chain. These pellets are what LifestyleGarden® will use to “power” its Nassau collection, every item of which will be created within its in-house manufacturing facilities, which enables LifestyleGarden® to ensure complete traceability of material and product.
Collectors in Plastic Bank’s ethical recycling ecosystems in coastal communities receive bonuses for the materials they collect, which helps them provide basic family necessities such as groceries, school tuition, internet access, health insurance, cooking fuel, and more.
