Recycled plastic has gone a long way from the flimsy garden material we remember. If you are looking for a new glider for your porch or garden, you will be surprised by the quality of the new recycled plastic patio gliders. The material is made by recycling plastic milk and juice jugs, which are melted, processed, painted and formed into a lumber. Modern designers are having fun with this highly weather-resistant new material and the result is a wonderful choice of recycled plastic gliders in all sizes, forms and colors. Your new recycled plastic glider might look like it is made of oak, teak or pine, or you might prefer vivid colors. The designs vary from traditional to ultra-sleek and modern. There is almost no maintenance required, except from oiling the moving parts occasionally. Just grab your garden hose and give your gliders a quick wash and rub with a dry cloth, and they will look like new year after year. To make things even better, just think of the trees you have saved and environment you protected by supporting recycling efforts.
