CHOOSE SUSTAINABLE DECKING
Over a decade ago, Eva-Last® was founded by a passionate and driven team that recognised the need for environmentally conscientious, durable composite. From the reused, recycled and renewable raw ingredients we use to create our products, to the solar power we harness to manufacture it (and the countless trees we protect from felling), we are proud to offer you holistically sustainable decking.
Eva-Last® is a globally recognised and trusted brand that creates and distributes a specialised co-extruded wood-composite range made from recycled and sustainable raw materials.
WE LOVE TREES
Not a single tree is cut down for the purpose of producing Eva-Last® composite decking boards.
MADE OF RECYCLED & SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS
Eva-Last® composite decking products are made up of 60% bamboo fibres and 40% recycled plastics, which would otherwise end up in landfills.
NO HARMFUL CHEMICALS
Eva-Last® products are free of toxic chemicals and preservatives normally used for the treatment of natural timber.
In our factory nothing is wasted. This means that every bit of left-overmaterial is put back into the manufacturing line to be recycled and made into something new and sustainable.
HOW IT’S MADE
In order to create the highest functioning composite with the lowest carbon emissions, we combine recycled and reused plastics with sustainable bamboo, the key ingredient that makes Eva-Last® refreshingly different. Our award-winning products are designed to last for years to come without the need for stains, sealants or other environmentally-harmful chemicals.

MADE USING SOLAR ENERGY
MADE WITH SOLAR ENERGYPollution free, no greenhouse gases emitted
We believe that how we manufacture is just as important as what we manufacture when it comes to going green. That’s why we’ve traded in fossil fuels for renewable energy. Our products are now manufactured using 100% solar power. We are fully committed to bringing you a product that’s truly eco-conscious, and setting an example for other manufacturers to follow.
Using the above averages, this translates into an approximate total 43 tons of CO2 emissions, per day that we will stop going into the atmosphere, while at the same time no trees are required to be cut down to produce our "timber" products and with the advances we have made in the tecnology, our products can do anything timber can o an more. By the end of 2020 we will be completely carbon negative and actually be putting a few hundred kwh of energy back into the grid
We choose bamboo because it is stronger, safer and more sustainable. It has a greater tensile strength (resistance to being pulled apart) than steel, and can withstand compression better than concrete. It is such a clean product, that it is certified by most food agencies as safe to eat, and is cooler underfoot than timber decking. It grows extremely quickly – without the need for pesticides or chemical fertilizers. Bamboo keeps our soil stronger, our air cleaner and our environment healthier.
- Bamboo rejuvenates over 30 times faster than traditional hardwoods used for decking.
- Bamboo releases 35% more oxygen into our air than most hardwood trees.
- Bamboo is made into our composite with almost no wastage.
- Up to 28,000 species indigenous to rainforests can go extinct in the next quarter century due to deforestation.
- By the year 2030, we might only have 10% of ainforests left due to human interferance.
- In the time taken to read this, almost 3 hectares of rainforest have been cleared
