Environmentalists take note. Cleaning up the beach has never been so easy with American Made Outdoor Patio Furniture.
It’s the lazy environmental activist’s dream: all weather outdoor patio furniture that works to clean up the oceans while you relax sipping a pina colada on the beach. Too good to be true? Actually this one of those rare times where you can have your cocktail and drink it too. It turns out the latest in American made outdoor patio furniture, is a line of eco-friendly chairs, tables, lounges and rockers all made from recycled plastic bottles. The best part: the furniture is well designed, beautiful and lasts for many years.
This innovative eco-friendly patio furniture is created from recycled plastic lumber (also known as RPL) using an extrusion process that replicated the look and texture of real wood. Post consumer recycled HDPE containers such as water, soda, milk or detergent jugs comprise 90-100% of this furniture. They get transformed into a super durable, heavy and rigid board stock that looks and feels like real solid wood but can withstand outdoor abuse from rain, snow, ice, sun and salt water.
An Elegant Solution to the Problem of Plastics Disposal
- Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour & most of these are thrown away
- Plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kills an estimated 1 million sea creatures every year
- Plastic trash does not biodegrade
Two geniuses, Doug Rassi and Mark Phillabaum looked at these facts and saw a plentiful source of raw materials to make outdoor patio furniture that’s virtually indestructible. Just like our plastic trash, their brainchild recycled POLYWOOD all weather patio furniture does not deteriorate due to weather, insects or moisture. It doesn’t rot, splinter or crack. Sadly, plastic trash will be around forever but on the bright side, that’s what enables recycled POLYWOOD outdoor patio furniture to sport a lifetime guarantee.
