Greening Chessington's Furniture

Company News, Cleaning & Waste Management, Furnishing & Decor, EMEA
Chessington World of Adventures has installed furniture manufactured from 100 per cent recycled high-density polyethylene in its outdoor spaces as part of its plan to become fully sustainable.


The Merlin Group theme park which is 12 miles (19 Kilometres) southwest of Central London selected replacement picnic benches manufactured by NBB Recycled Furniture.


Jamie Chestnutt, Sustainability Manager at Chessington, says:

"We considered various options for our outdoor furniture and decided to go with NBB as the furniture they produce exactly matched our criteria of being attractive, hard-wearing, safe and environmentally friendly.


"It's our aim to ensure visitors to our theme park feel comfortable, and the purchase included a variety of picnic benches capable of accommodating the diverse needs of visitors who include larger groups and wheelchair users.


"It was refreshing to find a a supplier who can produce the furniture we require and also help in achieving our environmental goals."


An estimated 92,000 plastic milk bottles were saved from entering landfill sites as a result of the purchase, and Chessington is now working with NBB to replace its stock of litter bins with ones made from recycled plastic.
