Green Living: Choosing Recycled Plastic Adirondack Chairs & Tables

Green living isnít just a trend Ė itís the new norm. Being environmentally responsible is often on the minds of homeowners as they make efforts to recycle, opt for reusable shopping bags and purchase items made from recycled materials. One of the great places to incorporate products made from eco-friendly materials is in your backyard, with recycled plastic Adirondack chairs and tables.

What is Recycled Plastic Furniture?
Recycled plastic Adirondack chairs and tables are made from recycled milk jugs and plastic containers. When recycled, the plastic products are manufactured into a synthetic form of lumber that has the appearance of wood but all the benefits of plastic products.

Why Choose Recycled Plastic Adirondack Chairs?
Traditional Adirondack chairs are well known for their spacious, wide and deep seats; large arm rests; and all-around comfort. When you purchase these types of chairs and other outdoor furniture, itís sometimes hard to know if the wood used is FSC-certified or if the company used sustainable practices to create the product. When you purchase a recycled plastic Adirondack chair, you can feel good about doing your part to help the environment.

Earth saving aside, recycled plastic Adirondack chairs also offer the following benefits:

  • Durability. Recycled plastic Adirondack chairs are made from color-compounded materials that resist fading, discoloration and other forms of sun damage. You donít need to worry about leaving one of these chairs in the rain because it wonít crack, rust or splinter, and the paint wonít peel.
  • Selection. Recycled plastic tables and chairs have come a long way since they started to become popular in the 1990s. Todayís plastic Adirondack chairs come in more than 15 colors, including a style that looks like natural, stained wood. In addition to the traditional chair style, there are different types of Adirondack chairs to meet your needs, such as gliders, chairs with built-in foot rests, recliners, rockers and bar chairs.
  • Simple maintenance. Adirondack tables and chairs made from durable recycled plastic are perfect for homeowners with a busy lifestyle or who seek the convenience of virtually maintenance-free outdoor furniture. Youíll never have to paint or stain a recycled plastic Adirondack chair, because its color is not just on the surface of the piece of furniture. If you were to cut into a length of recycled plastic lumber, you would see that the color is uniform throughout the entire piece. To keep your Adirondack chair or table looking new, you simply need to clean it with soap and water. If you plan to keep your recycled plastic furniture outside, consider using a mild, biodegradable dish soap to help the wildlife in your area stay healthy.
  • Cost savings. Because these Adirondack tables and chairs are so durable and easy to maintain, you ultimately save money. While the initial price of a recycled plastic Adirondack chair is more than a traditional chair made from wood, bear in mind that youíll never have to purchase the supplies to refinish it over the years. Because wood products are susceptible to sun and water damage, itís only a matter of time before youíll need to purchase replacement patio furniture. On the other hand, when you purchase recycled plastic chairs and tables, youíll only need to make a one-time investment. Since Adirondack chairs have been a popular piece of outdoor furniture for decades, your environmentally friendly purchase will continue to be trendy.

Going green isnít just a nice thing to do for the environment. Itís an investment in the future of your children and their families. By purchasing items made from reusable resources that would have ended up in a landfill, you act as a prime example of how to be a responsible homeowner and live in comfort.
