Botanist Benches, out of Santa Ana, California, are made out of up to 50% recycled aluminum and come in a dazzling variety of colors, with custom pieces available to fit your home or office. Before you comment on the fact that these are new pieces of furniture (maybe not so eco-friendly), the company is committed to green practices and environmental sustainability, and their choice of aluminum makes for a 100% recyclable product.
The products are colored using a powder coated paint process which contains no VOC’s. Botanist offers custom colors and designs and can deliver your custom bench to you in 6 to 8 weeks, shipping direct from the factory in the US. The products are packaged with corrugated/cardboard materials made out of 100% recycled materials.
The choice of aluminum for the material is super-responsible, as it is quite possibly the perfect recyclable material. Aluminum is the only material that’s endlessly recyclable, and can be recycled over and over without breaking down. We've produced so much aluminum already that we have a nearly inexhaustible supply of it in circulation. If 100% off aluminum was recycled, no more new aluminum would have to be produced.
The benches are cut with a water jet, using a highly pressurized stream of water containing fine diamond dust as a cutting blade, producing no toxic fumes or high consumption of energy, with virtually zero material wasted.
Botanist is committed to social awareness, and donates 2% of all Botanist product sales to charities and foundations. For more information about the company and its products go visit them on the web at Orange22modern.
