The birth of a full-circle playground

A full-circle playground built on global UN goals and a circular economy

KOMPAN's first full-circle playground is built on global sustainability goals and a circular economy.

The full-circle playground is partially made of ocean waste and recycled plastic from hospitals in the region of Mid-Jutland in Denmark. 

The playground is made of textile waste, post-consumer recycled plastic bags, and ocean waste.
