A warm* rain has finally come to Vermont to wash away some of the 4 feet of snow that's been piled in my front yard for the longest time. I can't remember ever having such a snowy Febuary… and it was great fun for awhile.
But now I'm ready for Spring, and leafing through the photos of our new line of poly wood outdoor patio furniture is lifting my spirits. Manjula and Dennis are finishing putting the final touches on the outdoor furniture section of our website even as customers start receiving our first deliveries of Polywood chairs, tables and chaises.
Polywood furniture is 100% made in America and we are the only company I know of that offers a lifetime guarantee on it.
Besides the fact that it's made out of recycled plastic, I love the aspect that we no longer have to clear-cut the rainforest for tropical woods like teak and mahogany that were once the only real choice for durable outdoor furniture. It's a win-win: we're taking waste out of the waste stream and we're conserving forestlands at the same time. Not to mention the fact that it's beautiful and durable.
Check out this very cool outdoor patio furniture today. Even if you're not shopping, just looking at the pictures will help lift you out of the winter doldrums… and make you start to Think Spring. Or summer. Or maybe even a tropical vacation…
*In Vermont, at this time of year we can define "warm" as anything above 32F

Outdoor Patio Furniture That Helps Clean Up the Oceans? I know you must be thinking that's a bit of a stretch, but actually it's true. It's the lazy environmental activist's dream: casual seaside furniture that works to clean up the oceans while you relax sipping your pina colada on the beach. This is one of those rare times where you can have your cocktail and drink it too!
The latest in high end outdoor patio furniture is our line of eco-friendly "poly wood" chairs, tables, lounges and rockers all made from recycled plastic bottles that might otherwise end up as ocean pollution.
See Peggy's article in EzineArticles.com and read more about ocean plastics pollution and the role of polywood furniture in cleaning it up.
