StartUp Turns Old Wind Turbine blades into Furniture.

Canvus, an Ohio startup, transforms old wind turbine blades—usually disposed of in landfills—into innovative furniture, labeling it "functional art" for public spaces. By repurposing challenging-to-recycle fiberglass blades, the company promotes sustainability. Their creations, including benches and picnic table sets, incorporate various reclaimed materials like recycled aluminum, rubber from tires and shoes, post-consumer carpeting, and rice hulls, contributing to waste reduction. Canvus aims to extend the life of wind turbine components and make environmentally conscious design choices. https://www.ecowatch.com/wind-turbine-blades-furniture.html Below is the Canvus company's Deborah Cove covered bench, built with a wind turbine blade.

        Love the mix of beautiful design, practical cover from rain (maybe it could be a bit extended in another iteration) and the saving of resources of course!

        We appreciate the support from the community, and hope everyone has the chance to check out our products in person! Canvus is helping to change the narrative on retired wind turbine blades by creating functional art that inspires people and brings communities together. We upcycle end-of-life blades and other recycled materials at scale into benches, tables, and planters for cities, parks, and schools. We also have a Request Program that allows companies with a commitment to renewable energy to make a positive impact in public spaces by donating sustainable furniture to the communities they care about.
