Sustainability with 3D printing 3D printing breathes new life into garden furniture
The companies Replique and Siena Garden have announced the production of over 1,000 3D printed foot caps for garden chairs, emphasizing the Repair aspect of the 4 R’s of Sustainability (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair). This initiative is part of their Eternal Spare Parts concept, which began under two years ago and aims to promote sustainability.
Replique, the provider of a secure 3D printing platform, and Siena Garden, the renowned German garden furniture brand, continue their joint commitment to sustainability with a great achievement. Together, they announce the production of more than 1,000 3D printed foot caps or protection covers, breathing new life into garden chairs and contributing to a circular economy by adding on the Repair pillar of the 4 R’s of Sustainability (Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Repair).
This follows their Eternal Spare Parts concept started less than two years ago that promotes sustainability by offering continuous replacement parts for garden furniture, extending the product lifespan and reducing waste.
The seamless integration of Replique's 3D printing platform allows spare parts to be produced on-demand and locally, eliminating excessive inventory and avoiding huge minimum order quantities.
This not only reduces costs for Siena Garden, it also enhances customer satisfaction with improved aftermarket services. In addition to foot caps, the Siena Garden web shop offers other repair parts, such as handles, connecting and moving parts, designed for Holywood swings and garden loungers. Without the technology, these spare parts would remain unavailable, leaving garden furniture looking worn or thrown away.
