The recent opening of Europe’s largest 100% recycled plastic boardwalk, made entirely from Ecoplastic materials, has made headlines all over Ireland. Trade publications, design journals and media outlets have all featured the Ecoplastic boardwalk at the River Boyne – which forms part of the Boyne Greenway connecting the town of Drogheda to various tourist sites in the area.
The buzz has also attracted the attention of the Belfast Telegraph, Northern Ireland’s largest daily newspaper, who interviewed Ecoplastic Managing Director Sara Velasquez about the project. You can read the interview here.
Since opening in April 2014, the 3250m2 installation of recycled plastic boardwalk has been a hit with the thousands of weekly users who cycle, run or walk along the river Boyne but it’s also blazed a trail with architects, consulting engineers and other specifiers, with a number of other projects around Ireland now altering their plans to include Ecoplastic as an alternative to traditional materials such as steel or timber.
