LifestyleGarden Nassau DuraOcean 6 Seat Rectangular Dining Set - Mixed

As December arrives, bringing with it the festive spirit and the anticipation of welcoming a new year- make a conscious choice to embrace sustainability in our outdoor décor. This blog is dedicated to showcasing eco-friendly garden furniture options that are not only stylish but also perfect for the winter season, aligning with the ethos of Shackletons Home and Garden.

The Importance of Sustainable Furniture

Sustainability in garden furniture is more than a trend – choosing eco-friendly pieces not only minimises environmental impact, but also supports a greener future. Lifestyle Garden’s furniture embodies this philosophy, utilising sustainable materials and processes to craft pieces that are as kind to the earth as they are stylish.

The Importance of Materials

Wood: Wood is synonymous with classic garden furniture. Lifestyle Garden opts for responsibly sourced timber like FSC-certified teak, ensuring each piece comes from sustainably managed forests. These woods offer durability and natural beauty, perfect for the harsh conditions of winter. A fantastic range that features Lifestyle Garden FSC-certified teak is the Bahamas collection which includes some great corner and lounge set options.

Recycled Plastics: Lifestyle Garden is at the forefront of using recycled plastics in garden furniture. Using recycled marine waste, Lifestyle Garden created DuraOceon® and produced the first commercially available chair made with marine plastic waste. This material is utilised in the Nassau collection, which features colourful bistro and dining sets.

Petan: Petan is an environmentally-friendly, weather-resistant wicker, with a natural colour made from eco-friendly colour additives and a natural feel. Paten is blended to be extremely durable and comfortable making it the perfect addition to your outdoor area. The Samoa collection features Petan in its bistro and dining sets.

Aluminium: Lifestyle Garden uses high-quality aluminium coated in Duracoat® for effective protection from the weather. Lifestyle Garden’s aluminium is designed to withstand the elements, making it a great choice for your garden this December. The Panama collection is part of the aluminium collection at Lifestyle Garden and is a great example of its versatility and endurance.

Sustainable Design Principles

Functional and Stylish: Lifestyle Garden’s furniture balances functionality with aesthetics. Each piece is designed to maximise comfort and style whilst adhering to sustainable practices, ensuring your garden looks fabulous and eco-friendly.

Innovative and Durable: Durability is key in sustainable furniture – Lifestyle Garden’s innovative designs withstand the elements, reducing the need for replacements and minimising waste. Lifestyle Garden furniture products are all recyclable, so when your furniture is at the end of its useful life, you can look up local recycling points to ensure the materials can be used again.       

Style Meets Sustainability

Your garden can reflect your style as well as your commitment to the environment. Lifestyle Garden has ranges to fit every shape and style of design. Look for designs that match your garden and complement them with sustainable accessories like solar-powered lights to enhance the aesthetic and promote a greener lifestyle.      

Lifestyle Garden’s commitment to sustainability extends our product range. We engage in practices aimed at reducing our carbon footprint, such as using renewable energy sources and creating new and innovative ways to use recycled materials.

Choosing eco-friendly garden furniture is more than a style statement; it’s a step towards a more sustainable future. Lifestyle Garden’s range of eco-conscience furniture not only adds style to your outdoor space but also aligns with your environmental values. Embrace these sustainable choices and transform your garden into an eco-friendly sanctuary this festive season.
