What is recycled plastic and why use it?

Recycled plastic comes in many different types and formulations and they each have their own characteristics.

All the products you will find on our website are made from mixed recycled plastics that are formulated to perform in the application they were designed for. Our products contain a careful mix of polyethylene (HDPE/LDPE), polypropylene (PP) and some other plastics such as ABI and HIPS.
