Environmentally conscious developments by ScanCom

Interest in sustainable production and development continues to grow day by day. Rethinking an innovative way to reuse post-consumer waste to create eco-friendly designs that both look great and encourage a sustainable environment is now a must in the furniture industry.

At ScanCom, we understand that environmentally responsible initiatives are the only way to deliver innovative product development. DuraOcean® and DuraLand® chairs are a shining example of our commitment to sustainable development practices and are designed to firmly close the recycling cycle, the entire chair can be disassembled and recycled once again at the end of its lifecycle; this is a solution that offers an enduring impact on the environment.

No harmful materials are used in the production of this groundbreaking range of chairs, which are manufactured in accordance with the EU’s REACH regulations. This product also honours the UN Sustainable Development Goals of protecting, ‘Life Below Water’ (SDGs 14), ‘Life on Land’ (SDGs 15), ‘Responsible Consumption and Production’ (SDGs 12) and ‘Partnership for the Goals’ (SDGs 17).

Our partners collect the waste and process it into a valuable recycled raw material, which is delivered to us in pellet form. These pellets are mixed into resin with other additives and gas-injected into our custom-built moulds. The result is a UV-resistant and ergonomically designed bucket that is supported by our hard-wearing FSC® Brazilian Eucalyptus wood.

This is only the start of LifestyleGarden® and ScanCom’s ambitions with DuraOcean® and DuraLand®; it is our aim that all future innovative plastic models will be designed in recycled materials from 2020 onwards.

The challenges facing our environment require creative and innovative solutions; these groundbreaking chairs are just the tip of the iceberg, with lots more to come from our design team in the near future. DuraOcean® and DuraLand® are the result of ScanCom’s sustainability journey, but it is not the end point, we will continue to look for even more ways to further lower our carbon footprint, while still delivering our customers the highest levels of quality always Doing Business the Right Way – The Sustainable Way.
