Polly Products combines style functionality and ecology in manufacturing durable outdoor furnishings for commercial recreational municipal and residential use. Our park benches picnic tables receptacles and message centers are made from 100 post-consumer recycled High-Density Polyethylene plastic (HDPE 2) adding only colorant molding enhancer and UV protectant. Research by the Mote Marine Laboratory in Sarasota Florida found that plastic bottles take 450 years to decompose. Used plastic is filling up our landfills littering our environment and polluting our waterways. However that long-lasting problem of plastic can also be a wonderful problem to have if it is recycled into something you want to last. Recycling plastic not only keeps trash out of landfills and reduces pollution in the environment but we also consume less energy and natural resources plus we can make furnishings that will last far longer than those made of wood metal or other traditional materials. Our outdoor furnishings will not rot splinter peel or flake and never need to be stained or repainted because the color is molded through the entire product. Stainless-steel fasteners ensure rust-free lifetime durability.Outdoor furnishings made from recycled materials may also qualify towards LEED points.
