Paris Olympics to Give Waste a Second Life With Recycled Plastic Chairs


Next year’s Games is promoting sustainability and raising awareness about recycling in creative ways. Spectators at the Paris 2024 Olympic Games will sit on chairs made of plastic recycled from local bins. 

The seats at Olympic venues such as the Arena at Porte de la Chapelle in Paris and the Olympic aquatic centre in Saint-Denis will be made from recycled plastic.

Around 11,000 seats will be made from recycled materials. Paris-based recycling company Lemon Tri has teamed up with eco-construction firm Le Pavé to collect plastic waste and transform it into shredded plastic chips.
