Sustainability & Green Design in Street Furniture

“Sustainability” and the concerted effort to “reduce environmental impact” has been a key priority for businesses around the globe for a number of years now. Nowhere is this more so than in the construction industry where designers and specifiers are charged with making their projects as environmentally friendly as possible.

This means not only considering the way people will interact with the outdoor spaces they have created (whether it be installing litter bins in the right places to reduce litter & encourage recycling or incorporating cycle parking to promote low carbon transport).



The landscape architects and building contractors who design & deliver these external works projects also have to consider the overall ecological impact of a scheme from conception to completion (and beyond). This includes all materials and products used, as well as the sustainability credentials of potential supply chain partners.

As suppliers of design-led street furniture to some of the most prestigious public space projects, we at Bailey Artform decided to ask some searching questions in order to assess our own green credentials and commitment to sustainability

  1. What part do we currently play in making public spaces and urban development greener overall?
  2. How can we as external furniture suppliers keep our own environmental impact as low as possible?
  3. Who else is doing this well at the moment and how?

The True Cost of Buying Cheap

A green supply chain is only as strong as its weakest link…

Bailey Artform has three supply chain partners each with a distinct and unique offering in high end, design-led street furniture. We chose them not only based on the quality of their products, but also because their values and principles matched our own. A key consideration for us was their commitment to the environment and a sustainable approach to product design and manufacturing
