The school’s old play equipment had reached the end of safe use: the wood had rotted in places and split in others. So when we were looking for a replacement we were pleased to find a company that manufactured their equipment from plastic which would last a long time and not succumb to rotting or splitting. However, we were concerned that plastic wasn’t environmentally friendly. When we found the Hideout House were using recycled plastic this “ticked all the boxes”.
The children (and parents) were really excited to think that the new trim tail had once been milk cartons! Now that the equipment is installed it looks sturdy, but quite rustic, in our play area. The children love it and we expect to get many years of use from it.
