Record cabinets sustainabily made
Sustainability is key with all elements of Vinyl Station record cabinets. From timeless design, sourcing of materials, manufacturing, product longevity and product end of life.
Vinyl console design
Designed to be visually unique and for longevity, each Vinyl Station is a strong and durable piece of furniture. The functional design, that encourages flipping and playing vinyl at waist height, means your Vinyl Station will be relevant and used as long as vinyl records are around.
Sourcing of sustainable materials
We only craft Vinyl Stations from sustainable materials. Either post consumer recycled plastics, or reclaimed Australian hardwoods. We would never choose a virgin plastic, or wood sourced from old growth forests. Globally, and as well as in Australia, plastic waste is a problem. According to the DCCEEW, in 2020 Australians used 3.4 million tonnes of plastic, and much of which goes to landfill. We’re turning this valuable resource into something that’s useful for decades. Plus, we’re diverting this waste from landfill.
Recycled post consumer HDPE plastic
With a wide range of colour choices and colour mixes, plus the stunning speckle that each colour mix creates, post consumer plastic a great choice. HDPE plastic is durable and strong, and will stand the test of time.
Reclaimed Australian hardwood
Only trusted suppliers of reclaimed timbers are considered when sourcing particular timbers. When starting the process of designing a Vinyl Station, will carefully select reclaimed timber from either Whelan The Warehouse in Port Melbourne, or Timberzoo in Geelong. Reclaimed timbers include Messmate, Blackwood, Red Gum, Jarrah, Ironbark and many more.
Each Vinyl Station is made in our Geelong or Melbourne workshops, from locally sourced sustainable materials. By taking waste plastic, recycling it, and creating something with real value at the location where the original material has been sourced, this process is a great example of sustainability. Australian made products means that less shipping is required, as locally made avoids the need for international freight from parts of the world where much manufacturing occurs.
