PolyWood Recycled Outdoor Furniture


Have you heard the phrase, “One man’s trash is another’s treasure?” Well, Poly-Woodrecycled outdoor furniture takes this to a whole new level. Since 1990, Poly-Wood has been taking the trash of many men, women, and children (primarily milk bottles) and turning it into high quality, well-constructed outdoor furniture.

Not only are they doing the environment a huge favor by preventing the waste of valuable materials, they’re doing those of us who like relaxing outside a huge favor as well–a purchase that gives us peace of mind every time we use it.

Obviously, Poly-Wood furniture is a clear choice for those of us who are trying to be more eco-conscious. But there is also a practical side (aside from just having cool outdoor furniture).

Poly-Wood repels water and substances like ketchup, tanning oil, and sunspray.

It won’t need sanding, staining, or painting.

And unless you’re a pro wrestler using your furniture as a fighting weapon, chances are your Poly-Wood furniture will be completely maintenance-free.

For those of you that like variety, Poly-Wood has furniture to match your style, whatever it is. The Polywood Adirondack is a customer favorite, but any of the styles–Captain, Long Island, or Park–can help you create a unique outdoor living space to enjoy with family and friends.

Here’s another thing: If you’re accustomed to the solid feel of wood, Poly-Wood has both the weight and feel of hardwood, so it won’t tip or blow over easily. But unlike wood, it won’t crack, fade, or splinter.

Whether you live in Alaska or Arizona, Poly-Wood maintains its integrity and beauty. It’s so durable, in fact, that some customers even leave it outside all year round.

We won’t lie, Poly-Wood is not the cheapest outdoor furniture you can buy. But it’s definitely some of the most solid and long-lasting, giving you value over time. It’s also an American made product that addresses a huge environmental challenge, making Poly-Wood both a sensible and practical investment.

The next time you look at your deck or patio and see an empty space, think about filling it with an eco-friendly, long-lasting chair, bench, or table from Poly-Wood.

And did you know that Polywood is made in the United States from 100% recycled materials? Polywood’s lumber is comprised of high-density polyethylene (HDPE), UV-inhibited pigment systems, foaming compounds and selected process additives. The HDPE primary raw material is derived from post-consumer bottle waste, such as milk and detergent bottles or other HDPE post industrial material. This material is cleaned by a decontamination process to a high purity level, which removes contaminants such as food residue, paper and adhesives. It is then compounded into a rigid board stock material, with the resulting finished product containing over 90% recycled plastic by weight!

Because HDPE products are made with a single, purified polymer, they are manufactured to exacting, reproducible specifications. They have exceptional resistance to corrosive substances, oil and fuels, insects, fungi, salt spray and other environmental stresses. Impervious to all types of weather conditions, including rain, snow, salt water, sun and ice, HDPE products like Polywood do not absorb moisture and will not rot, splinter, or crack. Furthermore, they require no water proofing, painting, staining, or similar maintenance when used in many exterior applications.

The characteristics of this durable material are both pleasant to the eyes and touch, and Polywood unites this plastic lumber with stainless steel hardware producing long lasting performance furnishings. Our extensive selection of Polywood furniture includes chairs, tables, rockers, garden benches, chaise lounges, ottomans, tete-a-tetes, planters, gliders, porch swings, bar furniture, furniture sets and cushions. With their many color options and styles, we are certain that you will find the outdoor furniture  that creates the outdoor space you desire!
