An innovative new outdoor patio furniture line called Poly-Wood keeps plastic garbage out of landfills and oceans.
Online PR News – 23-March-2011 – – The sustainable furniture crusaders at Vermont Woods Studios have added “Poly-Wood” an innovative new brand of outdoor patio furniture to their product line. Their extensive collections of luxury, high end patio chairs, tables, chaise lounges, bar furniture and rockers are all made from recycled plastic bottles that would normally be sent to the landfill. Instead they are transformed into a durable, heavy and rigid board stock. Traditional solid wood colors and textures are offered in Poly-Wood, as well as an array of vibrant colors including blue, teak, tangerine, red, sand, mahogany, lime, lemon, green, black, aruba and white.
Unlike traditional outdoor teak wood, the new generation of Poly-Wood furniture does not degrade when exposed to rain, snow, ice, sun, salt water, insects, mold or mildew. “I guess that’s not surprising given that scientists estimate the plastic bottles themselves will take over 400 years to biodegrade,” noted Vermont Woods Studios representative, Dennis Shanoff. “Vermont Woods Studios is the only company that I know of that carries a lifetime guarantee on Poly-Wood outdoor furniture -- thanks to the virtually indestructible nature of plastic.”
Mr. Shanoff noted that Americans use 2.5 million plastic bottles every hour, most of which are thrown away. “Plastic garbage thrown into the ocean kills an estimated 1 million sea creatures every year. Poly-Wood furniture is not only an ingenious solution to the problem of plastics disposal, it’s also well-designed, stylish furniture that people will enjoy for many years.”
