Frequently asked questions
Is it safe?
We use manual labour and an infra-red scanning machine to separate the materials and get rid of any contamination.
Quality control is carried out throughout the entire process from the collection of discarded plastic to the final finishing of the products.
Samples of the recycled plastic are tested in the laboratory to ensure safety.
The material that we recycle and retain for the production of ecoBirdy furniture is polyethylene, the most common plastic. It is often used in household goods e.g. food containers.
Our collection of kid-sized furniture pieces features friendly rounded shapes; there are no sharp edges.
Our furniture is childproof, even for the most boisterous and energetic of children.
Tests by inspection institutes are performed.
Are they recyclable?
ecoBirdy products are entirely recyclable at the end of their product life.
Due to accurate sorting and grinding, ecoBirdy's raw material is high-grade and pure.
This is different from the majority of recycled plastic products, which are mostly a mix of different types of plastics.
Are they biodegradable?
Our products are not biodegradable.
They are made of petroleum-based polymers which comes from post-consumer plastic waste.
We advise mechanical plastic recycling at the end of their product life.
How to clean ecoBirdy products
It is best to clean the products with a damp cloth, if necessary with neutral soap. Do not use ethanol or cleaning products containing solvents such as acetone, trichloroethylene or ammoniac.
How are the products made?
Our furniture is made in Italy. The technique is rotational moulding, which is a traditional way of producing plastic furniture. But we invented the new process of adding upcycled raw material using our own special formula. During the production process, not only are machines used, but there is also significant manual input from skilled operators.
Why are they unique?
Because of the special production process, each product is unique. By this we mean, the speckled pattern is never identical.
Why is the colour not uniform?
There is a very good reason for this. The gradient look comes from the moulding which is used in our production and from the composition of the material. The design choice is one we have consciously made, and we feel it contributes to the special identifiable look which is a hallmark of our design.
Can the products be used outside?
ecoBirdy products can perfectly be used outdoors.
The advantage of recycled plastic is that it is weather-resistant.
Resistant to temperatures from -60°C to +80°C.
