Synthetic Rattan - An Earth Friendly Alternative
When deciding whether or not to buy a synthetic rattan or go with something natural you must first ask a few questions. Most people are considered with how environmentally friendly the materials are as well as how long will they last. Natural wicker is made from a tree and while long lasting in the right conditions most rattan furniture is used outside. Because they are made of a natural fiber the damp and weather extremes will cause them to break down quickly and they will not stay looking good long.
Synthetic rattan on the other has a very long life span, 50 years or more, and during that time if made properly it will not fade easily and requires very little maintenance. You may wonder what is so earth friendly about this material. Just its long life span alone make it a better alternative, you would probably buy 2 or 3 sets of natural rattan to the one set that is synthetic, and when you do decide to replace your synthetic rattan furniture it is fully recyclable.
