The Barbados Defence Force recently highlighted the craftsmanship of its Engineering Company with a showcase of recycled shipping pallets to stylish and convenient furniture. The five (5) member team, under the direction of Sergeant Peter Gilkes created items such as coffee tables, cocktail tables, cabinets and desks.

Sgt Gilkes cheerfully indicated that it takes his team approximately 2 – 5 days to transform wooden pallets to useful furniture. To date the team has converted at least one-hundred and fifty (150) used pallets. He went on to further state that this project is part of BDFs commitment to protecting the environment, ensuring a cleaner and safer Barbados for future generations.
