Giving your abode a makeover doesn’t need to cost a lot of money. Aside from making use of what you already have and redesigning them to breathe new life into a space, you can also count on plastic home furnishing items that don’t compromise on style, quality, and safety.

Uratex Monoblock, for one, has monobloc chairs that could match any corner of your place. While it’s one of the most common plastic chairs in the world, the brand is offering it in different designs and styles with comfort and durability in mind. 

In time for its 30th anniversary, the company recently launched the Bawal ang Marupok campaign aimed at not just highlighting its purpose “to nurture and protect its customers” with its plastic home offerings but also bringing awareness of how Filipinos can choose the right plastic chairs over brittle options that only could be a potential cause for harm.

One of the best ways to do so, according to industry experts, is to check the warning label and make it a point that it comes with the Philippine Standard (PS) certification that proves that the product met the requirements set by the Department of Trade and Industry’s Bureau of Philippine Standards for monobloc chairs and stools.

Celebrity moms Rica Peralejo-Bonifacio and Camille Prats-Yambao also attended the affair to talk about buying quality household items for their families.

“For me, my family’s safety always comes first. Whenever I purchase items for our home, I always consider how the item can serve our family. Is it safe? Is it durable? Can it last for a long time?” Rica said.

“Monobloc chairs have been a Filipino household staple, but I agree that not all are made the same,” Camille added. 

“I really agree with Uratex Monoblock’s campaign, bawal talaga ang marupok. It’s really an invitation for every Filipino home to give importance to products that are safe and durable,” she continued.
