Posted October 04, 2018 04:07:15When plastic and wooden make goodchairs, it’s a lot easier to get the job done.
A study by the Institute for Energy and Environmental Research (IEER) showed that the use of wood and plastic is a cheaper alternative to installing a new carpet or metal bench, with a cost savings of $0.19 per square foot per year.
The report also found that a wood bench is more energy efficient than a plastic bench.
Wood is also lighter than plastic, and can be used in a variety of applications.
It can also be used for more durable materials like plywood.

Wood is cheap compared to plastic, but it’s not a particularly high-energy resource, the IER researchers wrote in their report.
The average energy used per square meter of wood used for furniture is only about 0.16 kWh per square inch, compared to 2.1 kWh per sq. ft. of plastic, according to the IESR study.
This difference is smaller than the energy consumption of a new car, and the energy required to power a microwave oven, the report found.
