Plastic Bags’ Productive Afterlife

Share this on:

The ease of recycling plastic bags into various green building products is creating new markets. Not only is recycled plastic and wood-fiber plastic composites good for outdoor lumber, they are now being made into door jambs, window casings, siding, roofing shingles, mouldings, playground equipment, and other products.

These long-lasting products are superior to wood in many ways. They are virtually maintenance free and don’t warp, rot, splinter or crack, or become dinner for destructive insects.

Various businesses are doing their part utilizing recycled plastic, and in the process, helping to save trees, which in turn help combat global warming.
