Choosing Materials - IKEA
An example is wood-plastic composite. Using wood fiber waste makes plastic products stronger and less expensive - and it helps put waste to good use. That's the beauty of composite: there's less material usage and a great potential to utilize lower quality materials (otherwise classified as waste) and turn them into something new that is strong, compact, and light with a long life time. Find composites in everything from BILLY bookcases, ODGER chairs to RÖDTOPPA covers.
