Recycled timber art frames by PanelPop. Photos: PanelPop website - Treehugger

The PanelPop is made from: Timber , which is acquired from industry and salvaged from renovation and demolition. This timber is often in thin lengths and no longer a viable building product and discarded (at cost) to landfill. Polystyrene (EPS) forms the backing for the PanelPop, creating structure and support so the panel can remain lightweight. EPS is extremely hard to recycle and largely ends up in landfill. What is recycled uses vast amounts of energy for little outcome and ends up in road fill. PanelPop reuses EPS directly from manufacturing waste such as fruit boxes and refrigeration/electrical goods packaging. Liquid stone: PanelPop uses a composite of gypsum based cement and industrial by-products to create its unique porcelain-like surface. PanelPop in combination with Melbourne based company Zeobond are striving to remove all carbon inputs from the stone mixture.
