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.
When customers asked us to start carrying outdoor furniture naturally we searched for a real wood product. However, while there are weather resistant species such as cedar, teak, eucalyptus and redwood that make fine outdoor furniture, we still worried about the longevity of the furniture, maintenance, and the environmental impact. Forest conservation is at the heart of our mission at Vermont Woods Studios and is a key factor in our decision making process. While researching high end outdoor wood furniture we discovered recycled plastic lumber (RPL) made from high-density polyethylene (HDPE). Also know as Poly-Wood, it looks like real wood & has the heavy weight of real wood plus it’s durable, versatile and environmentally friendly.
White, Black, Blue + Many Colors & NO Painting or Scraping
If you want colors, you’ll have to paint wood furniture and re-paint it over the years. But with Poly-Wood the color is evenly mixed throughout the RPL boards so when scratches occur, they rarely show. No painting, oiling or maintenance is required other than simply washing with water. Poly-Wood tolerates harsh weather such as rain, snow, ice, and salt water and unlike wood it’s insect, mold & mildew-proof.
I love the quality and style of POLYWOOD furniture and the fact that it’s American made. But I have to confess, the biggest reason we chose this recycled plastic outdoor furniture is the environmental aspect. We are a company that works to raise awareness about where your furniture comes from. So how cool is it that with POLYWOOD our customers are not just helping to save trees in the rainforest, they’re also taking waste out of the waste stream and keeping it out of our landfills?
