Beat the Bottle / Eco-friendly plastic lumber

Beat the Bottle
Beat the Bottle

We use post-consumer plastic waste as a resource to manufacture eco-friendly plastic lumber. The plastic lumber is an affordable alternative to timber, which reduces the need for building material manufactured from wood, helping to preserve forests and cut down on deforestation and effects of climate change. Plastic lumber made from recycled plastics are ideal for fencing on farms, homes, national parks, forest reserves and commercial places. Our solution creates economic value on plastic at the points of generation to enable the households/farms/companies to sort and sell plastics in order to earn income.
