Composite Prime has claimed that demand for its decking range, which has been made from composite technology, has soared as consumers start to shun plastic.
With around eight million tons of plastic polluting the earth’s oceans every year the race to protect marine life and fragile corals is growing ever more urgent on a daily basis.
Composite Prime’s concern for the environment is said to be an ethos which is shared by its employees, who are committed to tackling dangerous environmental changes both globally and locally. This priority is also said to be reflected in the company’s work processes and the results can be seen in its composite decking range.
The company’s HD Deck Dual and HD Deck XS products combine Forest Stewardship Council FSC 100% certified hardwood timber from well managed, sustainable sources and recycled plastics. This is reportedly seen as a crucial consideration in the current global campaign to reduce plastic waste.
Composite Prime uses sustainable friendly materials throughout its manufacturing processes of its entire range of decking products.
Managing Director, Dom Harrison, commented: “One million plastic bottles are bought every minute around the world, and that number will top half a trillion by 2021. Less than half of those bottles end up getting recycled.
“In the last six months alone, Composite Prime has saved the equivalent of 9,520,000 plastic milk bottles from landfill and recycled the equivalent of 121,500,000 plastic bottle caps.”
Sales Director, Charles Taylor, added: “Our entire ethos is centred on a range of products that offer low maintenance and long life, are socially responsible and kind to the environment, safe and child-friendly. Not only is our slip-free composite decking comfortable to walk on barefoot, but it’s also naturally splinter-free.
“Sustainability is a byword. Both stockists and end-users have the satisfaction of knowing that they are selling and buying a product that’s great for the environment.
“Consumers are increasingly switching to composite materials instead of plastic and as global challenges around plastic waste and the ability to plant forests to meet future timber demands increase, composite provides a sustainable and genuine alternative to timber.
“There has been extraordinary growth and very positive feedback in the last twelve months alone, which suggests there is enormous potential for expansion into other sectors.”
