Popular Mechanics recently showed the process for Polywood recycled plastics being used in place of lumber for items such as lawn furniture.

Recycling materials like this are reducing materials finding their way into waterways, reducing the amount of new virgin material required to be manufactured, and recycling material that would otherwise likely find itself in the landfill.

As an extra added bonus, you can kick back in your new Adirondack chair and relax outside all summer.
