No Butts Recycled Plastic Large Picnic Table Review

Plastic tables and benches for outdoors are not quite as popular as the wooden versions but with recycling at the forefront of many people’s minds, this is set to change.

We all enjoy sitting outside in beer gardens in the summer sun, well you can buy your own plastic bench to enjoy the sunshine and know that you’ve helped the environment.

This ‘No Butts’ product is made from 100% locally-sourced recycled plastic and is extremely strong and durable against bad weather.

The benefits of buying plastic rather than wood are sometimes not blatantly obvious.  However, 2 great perks are that you won’t get splinters and they’re much easier to keep clean and stain-free.

This particular product is available in 6 different colours and is delivered part assemble to your chosen delivery address and has full instructions on how to complete but is simple to fully assemble.

Resistant to Bad weather

As this product is made from plastic I can understand your concerns about whether it can withstand hot and cold weather.

Firstly, this product will be absolutely fine in the searing heat and sub-zero temperatures.  There is no need to bring it indoors as it will not melt in hot or crack in freezing cold weather.

Part Assembled on Delivery

To make life easier for all parties, this product will be delivered part assembled.  This helps the driver by not having to lift a fully assembled bench to your door but also helps you to build it quicker by just attaching a few extra parts.

Assembly is very easy as full instructions are provided and there aren’t too many parts to attach.

Size of the table

This large picnic table measures 2000mm in length which equates to being 2 metres long.  This provides ample room for 4 people to sit in separate sections because as you can see in the image there is a plastic divider in between seated people.

These sections provide ample room for you to sit comfortably without the person next to you being able to encroach onto your space.

This is particularly ideal when eating food, as there’s nothing worse when you’re bumping elbows with someone who thinks it’s ok to excessively spread out.


If you’re looking for an alternative to a wooden bench for your patio or business then this product is more than suitable.

It comes in a range of colours (black, blue, brown, cranberry, green and multi-coloured).

Therefore, if you need it for a certain type of event or to match your garden decor then at least you have 6 options to choose from.

These benches also require zero maintenance and only need a damp cloth to wipe clean in case of spillages.

Unlike wood benches, you don’t have to apply a coating and you don’t have to worry about it rotting because plastic doesn’t rot.

Eco Friendly

As mentioned above, this product has been made from recycled plastic and has prevented 1,444 plastic milk containers from going to landfill.

Just think, if people bought plastic benches that have been recycled rather than chopping down trees for wooden benches or using non-recycled plastic how much more eco-friendly we all could be, and this is just benches…

Purpose Built Kids Bench

It’s great that kids have the opportunity to have their very own picnic bench that is made to fit their size.  So many times you see kids being lifted onto the seat of the bench or having to jump off the seat to get down.

Now they can sit by themselves and learn that little bit of independence and responsibility of having their own table.

If your kids are anything like mine then they’ll be setting the table for you and your partner to have lunch on there and also cleaning it after you’ve eaten too.

Custom Orders Taken

This table is available in the traditional ‘wooden park bench colour’ however, should you require a custom colour for your child then you can order your prefered colour.

Maybe you’re buying for a school playground, to kit out your pub beer garden or for a park, then you can contact the supplier to check their colour range prior to ordering.

Please be aware that once custom orders are placed they cannot be cancelled or returned due to the product being ‘tailormade’ for you or your event/occasion.

Parasol Ready

Unfortunately, there isn’t a parasol umbrella included but you can easily purchase one for this plastic bench.  The diameter is 38mm so all you need to do is purchase one on Amazon at the same time of ordering this product.

More than likely, the umbrella will arrive before your picnic table.

Alternatively, check out these standalone cantilever parasols or check out these garden shelter reviews.
