Neptune Street Furniture has been creating street furniture since the 1960s and throughout its time in the engineering industry it has consistently been at the forefront of innovation and advances in designs. For the last five years the company has become one of the leading manufacturers of the now famous ‘Buddy Benches’. These have become a smash hit in schools up and down the UK.

Produced from 100% recycled plastic, these benches utilise bright and eye-catching colours while also being incredibly comfortable to sit on. Neptune Street Furniture has adopted a once simple phenomenon and created a whole “Friendship” range dedicated to creating a safe space for school children to go when they are lonely and sad. Furthermore, they reinforce the notion of communication from a young age and help teach children that asking for help is healthy and normal. Additionally, these benches help limit the carbon footprint left behind too, being a sturdy, reliable, recycled material, ensuring it will last a long time, but limit the damage made to the environment.

The concept behind Buddy Benches started in Canada back in 2013 and has since grown into a united global effort to combat loneliness in children. The concept was simple: give children somewhere to sit and visit when they are lacking friends or someone to talk to. This instils a sense of compassion and reinforces the importance of kindness. All while teaching children about talking and listening to people when its needed and not to bottle up emotions.

Neptune Street Furniture has a large selection of products in its Friendship Range including, but not limited to, benches, seats and planters. These are all made from 100% recycled plastic and come in a variety of bright colours.
