Our plastic lumber, is made with 100% recycled plastics , diverting millions pounds of plastic from landfills. Recycled Plastic Lumber is our structural material for supports, posts, and decks, comprising approximately 75-91% of the weight of each play structure. All lumber is blended with non-toxic UV Stabilizers and Colorants for uniform, lasting color.

Our 100% recycled plastic product utilizes high quality HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) to create a long lasting product.
