Composite Prime® says demand for its decking range made from the latest composite technology has soared as consumers 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 every day. Playing a part in tackling this challenge is one of the key priorities for Composite Prime Ltd, a Yorkshire-based eco-friendly decking firm. Composite Prime’s concern for the environment is an ethos shared by employees who are passionately committed to tackling dangerous environmental changes both globally, and locally. This priority is reflected in the company’s work processes and the results can be seen in the composite decking range which is attracting growing interest.
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, seen as a crucial consideration in the current global campaign to reduce plastic waste. Composite Prime takes great pride in its environmental credentials – using sustainable friendly materials throughout the manufacturing processes of its entire range of decking products.
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.
Starting from scratch just two years ago, Composite Prime® now has over 70 stockists nationwide and has seen business performance double in the last 12 months.
Sales director Charles Taylor says: “Our entire ethos is centred around 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.”
