An aluminium garden furniture set is the 'green choice'

10/08/2010 An aluminium garden furniture set could be the ideal choice for an eco-conscious homeowner, it has been suggested.

Shawna Coronado, writing for Chicago Now, explained that over 31 per cent of aluminium is made from recycled materials and once the garden furniture set has served its purpose it can often be recycled again.

Ms Coronado said that there were a few things to consider when looking for "green" garden furniture sets.

"Consider products which are longer lasting, sturdy and will not be thrown into the landfill when you are done using it, but could be used for something other than its original purpose," she explained.

Maintaining the furniture properly over its lifetime also ensures it will last longer, which is both good for the environment and cost effective.

Choosing an aluminium garden furniture set doesn't have to mean compromising on style, however.

The Garden and blog explained recently that cast aluminium garden furniture sets offer "sophistication" and "fresh design". ADNFCR-3488-ID-800019381-ADNFCR
