We used a total of 1,474kgs of recycled plastic to build the jungle gym at Yzerfontein Caravan Park, this is estimated to be the amount of plastic an average family of four would use in 29 years.
The plastic is non-toxic, making it ideally suited for children, it never needs to be maintained and will not rot and decay in harsh outdoors. Another advantage for the kiddies is that the plastic will not splinter or crack like wood does, leaving sharp edges which will cut hand hurt the sensitive skin on toddlers and kiddies. The lumber is durable and slip-proof.
What is even more astonishing is the fact that this jungle gym is equivalent to almost 30 years of plastic packaging that has been used by the average family of four! What would normally find its way into landfill sites, is now being used in a constructive and eco-friendly way.
