The EcoReDesign2 programme with the Centre for Design at RMIT University identified 50% less greenhouse emissions and 80% less energy used in the production of Recopol recycled resin compared to virgin resin.
At the design stage Wharington International’s aim is the elimination of glues in construction and upholstery. Streamlined upholstery techniques reduce stapling and allow for easy removal of the fabric for cleaning and replacement.
Wharington International offer the furniture industry a viable, sustainable, cleaner alternative to using timber products for framing upholstered furniture.
Wharington International thus eliminate sawdust, off-cuts and minimise glues and solvents from the work place. In furniture production, moulded shapes reduce the bulk of materials like foams required in upholstery, thereby reducing costs and the volume of waste at end-of-life.
