If you’ve discovered POLYWOOD all weather, recycled plastic outdoor furniture you love it, right?  It’s available in dozens of modern and traditional styles including Adirondack chairsrocking chairs, chaise lounges, outdoor dining tables, patio bar and counter height tables and more.

 

Plus POLYWOOD pool and patio furniture comes in white, black and 11 colors: blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, aruba and slate grey.  And it’s made in America of recycled plastic drink containers, so while you’re outside enjoying nature you can feel good about helping to preserve it through your purchase.

So now that you’ve decided to buy POLYWOOD, you’re looking for the best deal.  This kind of high quality furniture isn’t cheap.  Thus, where to go for the best price?

Well, have you noticed that all the dealers charge the same price?  That’s because the furniture maker (POLYWOOD Inc) has determined the lowest price that dealers seem to be able to stay in business with, and set that as a required minimum price.  Dealers who violate the minimum price policy will likely not be in business for long– either because POLYWOOD refuses to sell to them or they’ve run themselves into bankruptcy.

As it turns out the best deal on POLYWOOD isn’t about the lowest price.  It’s about the quality of the company you’re buying from and the way they stand behind their products.  At Vermont Woods Studios we’re committed to offering you the best values in POLYWOOD furniture that you will find anywhere and we stand behind all of our furniture (including POLYWOOD) with a lifetime guarantee (we’re the only dealer who does this, as far as I know).  Check it out along with the Top 10 Reasons to Buy POLYWOOD Furniture at Vermont Woods Studios.

I started Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture almost 7 years ago as part of a mission to help with rainforest conservation. We promote American made furniture that’s built with local, sustainably harvested wood as an alternative to imported furniture made with illegal tropical timber, clear cut from the world’s rapidly disappearing rainforests.

 

But a couple years ago when we were searching for an eco-friendly line of outdoor furniture, I began to learn that furniture is such a HUGE commodity it’s manufacture affects ocean conservation as well as forest conservation.  Often when rainforests are clear-cut for timber, they are converted into plantations that require massive amounts of pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers. The whole process results in soil erosion, run-off, ocean pollution and coral bleaching.

This knowledge is what led us to begin carrying our POLYWOOD outdoor furniture collection which is made from recycled plastic beverage containers, rather than rainforest woods like teak or mahogany.   I know this is a convoluted pathyway, but that’s what reminded me of today’s designation as World Oceans Day.

There’s no denying it– we are destroying the oceans and we need to take action to restore them.  90% of the big fish are gone and many of the fish caught today never even have the chance to reproduce. The average size of the remaining big fish has been cut in half in the last 50 years (the average weight of a swordfish caught today is 90 lbs., down from 266 lbs. in 1960).

The Green Prophet has some great suggestions if you’re wondering what you can do to help restore the oceans.  In addition to avoiding the purchase of furniture made from tropical woods (like teak, mahogany, ipe and eucalyptus) you can also help by eating only sustainably harvested fish and learning more about ocean conservation.

OK, thanks for reading all this.  Now time to head out to the beach for a swim!

Mother’s Day Gift Ideas

Flowers are always great for Mother’s Day, but if you’re looking for something a little different (and perhaps more extravagant) this year, how about something handmade in Vermont?

 

We’re running a special for Mother’s Day on Ken’s handmade cutting boards (small and large), chopping blocks and wooden drink coasters.  These are gifts Mom can enjoy for many years!

 

If you think Mom should be relaxing instead of preparing and serving food, maybe you’ll want to check out some of our new all weather patio, pool and deck furniture by POLYWOOD.

 

Whatever you think would delight Mom on this Mother’s Day, it’s probably time to get going on it today if shipping is involved.  At Vermont Woods Studios Fine Furniture, we’re at the phone now and ready to help.  Give us a call!

Living Chair by Peter Cook of Pooktre

How cool is this?

 

Check out Peter Cooks website, Pooktre.  Peter's tree gardens are in Austrailia where you can learn how to shape your own tree, or commission him to grow and shape a tree for you.  If you choose the latter, it takes about 7 years or so till the tree is shaped and you can transport it to your own garden.

Pretty wild.

All weather outdoor pool, patio, beach and garden furniture by Polywood is made from recycled plastic bottles

Many thanks to our Vermont Woods Studios staff members who volunteered to pick up trash today as part of Vermont’s Green Up Day.

 

We bagged about a dozen pounds of old beer bottles, empty cigarette packs and plastic shopping bags, most of which we were able to place in Vernon’s recycle bins.

 

So that’s a fun project for us to do and besides supporting our community it also it dovetails into our new line of POLYWOOD all weather outdoor furniture.

 

POLYWOOD is a line of patio, porch, pool and beach furniture that’s made from (90-100%) recycled plastic bottles.  We love the POLYWOOD brand because of it’s eco-friendly, green nature but also because it’s 100% made in America and the quality is superior to any comparable patio furniture we’ve seen.

 

If you’re looking for super strong and sturdy all weather outdoor furniture check out these POLYWOOD collections on our website:

*     Adirondack Classic Furniture

*     Deep Seating Patio Furniture

*     Modern Euro Poly Wood Furniture

*     Kids Indoor – Outdoor Furniture
