Are Teak Banana Chairs Sustainable?

The Sustainability Of Mr Teak Furniture

As the World’s forestry and woodlands are decimated due to unethical and illegal harvesting, entire ecosystems are being put at risk. Due to an Indonesian government incentive, the country now responsibly monitors all tree harvest, implementing rules to ensure any such activity is done ethically and sustainably. Timber plantations are a renewable source of farmed wood production and these initiatives are supplemented by groups such as Trees4Trees, a non-profit re-planting organisation Mr Teak supports. This aids towards reforestation, but they also strive to educate society about the impact of timber harvesting on communities and the environment.

All our Mr Teak garden furniture is SVLK (Sistem Verificasi Legalitas Kayu - Indonesian timber legality verifier) certified, ensuring all wood used is sustainable and legally sourced. Also all of our products are delivered to you via recyclable materials and any excess materials, including wood is repurposed, minimising waste and reducing our carbon footprint.

Mr Teak Banana Chairs

What Is A Banana Chair?

A banana chair, often referred to as a half moon banana due to the curvature of the wave support part of the design, is an extremely popular type of garden chair. Blending finely sanded teak with a smooth rolling crescent design, the banana chair collection is amongst our Mr Teak bestsellers.

Are Teak Banana Chairs durable?

Teak (Tectona Grandis) has a natural water resistance, meaning our robustly constructed furniture can be left outdoors year round no matter the weather, meaning you can shop with confidence knowing that our smooth finish plantation teak packs a punch.

Our finely sanded sustainable teak garden chairs have a lengthy life expectancy of around 15-20 years. Although our teak banana chairs require minimal maintenance, extra precautionary upkeep steps can be taken to further bolster sturdiness. Mr Teak Breathable bench and chair covers offer great, rapid protection to keep your garden furniture dry, preventing mildew growth.

Are Teak Banana Chairs Comfortable?

Due to the curved top rail support part of the design and the fact you sit in and not on them, our teak banana chairs provide great comfort and sturdy support. If you wish to further enhance the relaxing qualities of your garden furniture, something from our forest green cushion range may be the ideal option.
