Although plastic bag bans are spreading throughout the country, more manufacturers are switching to producing plastic pouches – meaning plastic will remain a part of everyday American life. But – there’s a solution.
In fact, Trex decking and railing products are made up of 16 percent post-consumer plastics – and there is potential for that number to considerably increase with help from consumers.
In honor of Earth Day on April 22, Trex encourages everyone to become an active polyethylene recycler and help raise awareness about the importance of keeping plastic out of landfills.
