The benches are crafted from composite sheets made of recycled post-consumption beverage cartons. These benches are very sturdy, water-resistant (not waterproof) as well as termite and pest-proof.
Meanwhile, using such a technology for preparing certain items can replace the use of wood or plywood thereby helping in preventing felling of trees and conserve the nature. Thus recycling can go a long way in preserving the ecosystem.
