HDPE is repurposed into sheets of poly lumber for patio furniture
A trend in patio furniture that has grown steadily over the past few years is the use of poly lumber. And why not? Here is a way to take our reprehensible piles of waste product and turn it into well-built, well-priced patio furniture.
Poly lumber is created from recycled milk jugs. HDPE, or high density polypropylene, is repurposed into pellets that are used to form sheets of "poly lumber". The sheets are then used, just like wood, to construct patio furniture.
Earth tones and brilliant primary and tropical colors are available in classic Adirondack and mission style furnishings among others. Besides doing something great for the environment, you get patio furniture that won’t rot, crack, fade, or split; it never needs sanding, refinishing or painting. Some poly lumber comes with a 20 year warranty.
A great example of poly lumber seating is the Comfo-Back Adirondack Chair from Cape Cod (pictured above right).
