PlasTEAK is Made of Recycled Material


The use of recycled materials is extremely important these days. When you choose products that are made of recycled materials you are making an environmentally-friendly decision to help the Earth by reducing deforestation and diverting plastic waste from landfills.

Our recycled plastic products are made out of HDPE (high-density polyethylene) which is derived mainly from plastic milk jugs. An average recycled plastic parking block uses about 300 milk jugs and a standard 8ft picnic table uses about 3,200 milk jugs. That’s a lot of recycling! And not only are our products made of recycled plastic, but they are also fully recyclable.

In addition to being eco-friendly, recycled plastic provides numerous advantages when compared to other products made of non-renewable materials such as wood or concrete:

  • Recycled Plastic Products are long lasting and virtually maintenance free
  • Recycled Plastic Products never need to be treated/painted and are resistant to most graffiti
  • Recycled Plastic Products do not splinter, crack, chip, absorb moisture or rot
  • Recycled Plastic Products are resistant to salt and acids and bacteria
  • Recycled Plastic Products are unaffected by termites, rodents, worms, marine parasites, or other insects
  • Recycled Plastic Products do not leech or bleed toxins or carcinogens into the soil or marine ecology
  • Recycled Plastic Products are resistant to UV and mold and mildew
  • Recycled Plastic Products are easy to clean

And greetings to you from far off NZ… I’m sending this email because of all the suppliers of artificial teak you were by far the most helpful. Take a bow!
