At Lumberock®, we understand that "going green" is not just a fad; it's a lifestyle. Sustainable living defines a way of life that attempts to reduce an individual's use of the Earth's natural resources by minimizing waste and incorporating eco-friendly products into every day existence. Choosing Lumberock® helps achieve this environmentally responsible lifestyle.
Post-Consumer Recycled Materials
Lumberock® is made from recycled high-density polyethylene plastic. This type of plastic is typically indicated by the number "2" recycling symbol, as found on milk jugs and detergent bottles. Other composite lumber companies use virgin HDPE plastic to create their boards, however 75% of the plastic material that Lumberock® uses comes directly from the post-consumer waste stream. This means that almost all of the plastic used in our boards was once a milk jug like you recycle in your own home!
Our recycled plastic lumber features another stage of reusability. It is 100% recyclable at the end of its original intended use. All of the boards can be reduced to scrap plastic that will be reincorporated into other recycled plastic products and will never touch the global waste stream.
Premium Decking is a proud member of the U.S. Green Building Council and the use of our mineral plastic composite lumber can help achieve LEED credits for your building project (The Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design Green Building Rating System®
). Our product was also named a Most Environmentally Preferable Product by the Healthy Building Network.
Our Green Initiative
In addition to manufacturing a recycled and reusable product, Lumberock®
maintains the highest standards for ecological conservation in both its business practices and product development. No harmful emissions are released during the production or use of Lumberock®
Premium Decking, and the lack of wood materials helps reduce deforestation and global warming. Our business encourages recycling and keeps plastic waste out of our landfills. Also, we insist on energy-efficient office and factory management and all of our team members participate in the reduction of office waste and energy usage.
