Cities looking to go green and some color to their city parks should check out Nikola Gramatikov's ReCycle Park. ReCyle Park is a conceptual set of modular outdoor furniture made from, you guessed it, recycled plastic.

The furniture of ReCycle Park may seem tame at first, but the benches and planters that make up this collection truly are more than meets the eye. For starters, the benches that comprise ReCycle Park can be turned up and sealed to create backrests. Benches left in the down position can function as backless resting spots or bike racks. The planters that border the benches can also be customized to act as either waste bins or flower holders. Since all of the furniture is made from recycled plastic, there is the potential to create a wonderfully colorful set of furniture made using multi-colored pieces of plastic.

The furniture of ReCycle Park would be a great alternative to the steel benches and cement chairs that currently litter most city parks. You can check out ReCycle Park in its entirety, along with other awesome objects made from recycled plastic here.
