Back in 1990, POLYWOOD® pioneered a technique to manufacture high-quality garden furniture from recycled plastics, and today the product has renewed significance in a time when the impact of human waste on our planet is at the forefront of consumer’s minds. POLYWOOD® represents an intelligent consumer choice and remains a market leader in eco-friendly outdoor tables and chairs.
It is thought that a plastic bottle will take up to 450 years to completely biodegrade in landfill and while countless plastic bottles are still produced and used every year around the world, it makes perfect environmental sense to recycle them into something else. POLYWOOD® recycle over 2million kilos of plastic into their ‘timber’ every year, keeping millions of plastic bottles out of landfill and ensuring they are made into an attractive and durable product.
The careful manufacturing process of POLYWOOD® furniture ensures that all offcuts and rejects of the ‘timber’ are recycled and used to create the next piece of POLYWOOD outdoor furniture. Even the fabric elements of the POLYWOOD® range are made from recycled Phifertex material, and any offcuts during the production process are always recycled.
Alternatives to POLYWOOD®, such as lightweight plastic furniture that easily suffers damage and cracks, may be thrown away after just a season or two, adding to the growing problem of landfill sites full of discarded consumer products. POLYWOOD’s sustainable, heavy duty outdoor furniture provides a lifetime of enjoyment that will withstand high winds and blazing sun with minimal maintenance, and remain a part of our gardens for many years to come.
