Launch of the GEOM collection of coffee tables made from Recycled Plastic Bags

The Geom Collection is a set of small coffee tables with geometric shape tops made entirely from recycled plastic bags. 
  • Eco-Board is a process to recycle plastic bags and plastic scrap (cups, plates, cutlery, CD's, toothpaste tubes, tetrapak juice & milk packages) into plastic panel boards.
  • Eco-Board was invented by Cedar Environmental, a Lebanese environmental and industrial engineering organization.
  • Eco-Boards are meant to replace wood or steel boards in most construction applications. Used for fencing or prefabricated house modules.
  • A typical Eco-Board weighs about 15 kilograms and diverts about 2500 shopping plastic bags from ending up in a landfill or scattered on roads and forests.
  • Eco-Boards are manufactured without any chemical or industrial additives. They are entirely made from reclaimed plastic bags. They are resin free and chemicals free.
    They have been processed at high temperatures to kill all potential pathogens. Eco-Boards are considered "sterilized" grade.
  • Each GEOM coffee table will have 300 grs. worth of Eco-Board or about 50 plastic bags.
  • Each GEOM coffee table is UNIQUE since the pattern of Eco-Board is completely random; there are no identical GEOM Tables.
  • Currently, Cedar Environmental is developing the process of making Eco-Boards to rely solely on alternative/renewable energy.

Come join us this Saturday April 21 2012 for the launch party at PLAN BEY Mar Mikhael, Achrafieh (25 meters before the Fire Department) 01-444110 from 18:00 to 20:30.

    1. What a beautiful collection! I'm so sad I couldn't make it.

    2. Hi! im really interested to this topic, can you discuss more about its physical and chemical properties? the effect of the heat of the sun to it. Or even its heat capacity?
