Marmax Products On The Way To Green Glory

662 750 Marmax Recycled Plastic Products

Marmax Products Ltd, based in Stanley, County Durham, has won a Green Apple Environment Award in the international campaign to find the greenest companies, councils and communities.

They competed against more than 500 other nominations in the Green Apple Awards for Environmental Best Practice, and they will be presented with their trophy and certificate at a glittering presentation ceremony on November 12, 2018.

As a result of this Green Apple Award Success, they have been invited to have their winning paper published in The Green Book, the leading international work of reference on environmental best practice, so that others around the world can follow their example and learn from their achievement.

They could also progress to represent their country in the Green World Awards 2019 and have 100 trees planted in heir name as part of the United Nations Billion Trees Initiative.

The Green Apple Awards began in 1994 and have become established as the country’s major recognition for environmental endeavour among companies, councils, communities and countries.

The awards are organised by The Green Organisation – an international, independent, non-political, non-profit environment group dedicated to recognising, rewarding and promoting environmental best practice around the world.

The Green Apple Awards are supported by the Environment Agency, the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, the Chartered Institution for Wastes Management and other independent bodies.

If you know a company, council or community that deserves recognition for its environmental efforts, you can nominate them for a Green Apple Award by telephoning 01392 88 1066.

1024 834 Marmax Recycled Plastic Products

Here at Marmax Products, we want children to enjoy school life and what better way to do it than with our 100% HDPE recycled plastic outdoor products. We feel that the playground should be an extension of the classroom where children can have fun, no matter their ability.

After working with a Special Educational Needs school, we designed and manufactured our award winning SEN range of products to encourage inclusion, regardless of the capability of the child and to give them the same opportunities as their peers to enjoy outdoor play. All of the products in our SEN range are accessible for both able and less able bodied children so that everyone is able to interact with their friends.

Our pirate ship, village shop and train carriage provide imaginative play, encourages role modelling and role play. The village shop also teaches children simple mathematics, whether it be how many items they have in their basket, how much these items add up to and also how much change is to be given.

We also have picnic benches which come with wheelchair access letting all reflect on their day with friends. And with our SEN potting table, children can join in  growing their own vegetables and plants with ease.

All of our products are maintenance free, do not rot, corrode or splinter and come with a 25 year construction guarantee.

Here at Marmax Products, we want the children to enjoy all of this at school as well and what better way to do it than with our 100% HDPE recycled plastic outdoor products.

Recycled Plastic Outdoor Products can save you Time and Money

Recycled Plastic Outdoor Products can save you Time and Money!

Picture the scenario

Outside your school, in your theme park or in your local parish, you have wooden outdoor products. You have to clean, stain and varnish constantly. What if we told you that with recycled plastic outdoor products, you would only need to clean them once a year! Sound too good to be true?

Marmax Products manufacture 100% recycled plastic outdoor products; the same plastic which is used to make milk containers. Because of the nature of this material, our products are maintenance free, they do not rot, corrode or splinter, and can withstand the harshest of weather. And with our 25 year construction guarantee, we are certain that our products will last for generations.

But what’s in it for you?

By purchasing our products, you are guaranteed to save time. Normally, someone has to take time out to stain and varnish wooden alternatives, but with Marmax Products, you can choose when you clean them down. This may be once a month, or even once a year; all they require is either a wipe down with soapy water or jet washed, meaning that you have extra time to carry out your other jobs. This will save you money, as it means that you do not have to employ extra staff to cover additional jobs that have not been completed. Even if your products become vandalised, this can be removed with white spirits, again saving you the time of having to paint them to cover it up.

We pride ourselves on our recycled plastic outdoor products, and ensure that you receive the best quality to help save you time and money. Whether you require our recycled plastic outdoor products for a playground, zoo, golf course, fishing lake, school or pub garden, we can guarantee that our products can withstand any environment and still keep their appearance all year round.

Finally, when the product comes to the end of its life, we are able to recycle them back into the extrusion process to manufacture more outdoor products for future generations.
