What is recycled plastic?
Recycled plastic is the end product of the plastic recycling process. Used plastic is washed, chipped and extruded to create plastic lumber which we turn into planters. As plastic can be recycled seven to nine times, even at the end of the planter’s life it can be reused and given new life. This makes recycled plastic environmentally friendly and extremely hardwearing.
