Newcastle sustainable furniture start-up, Resourceful Living, is doing its part for the environment by giving problematic plastics waste a second life, turning it into functional household items.

Reducing plastic pollution and boosting business in the Hunter region, Resourceful Living takes tonnes of discarded plastic, shreds it, heat-presses it, and then cuts it into practical items – ranging from furniture, to clocks, and even skirting boards.

Based in Beresfield, the company takes waste from yellow bins and environmental clean-up groups, and the process from “pollution to practical” can take as little as two days.
