Some of us like wood, others prefer metal swings, but the best porch swings today are made of recycled plastic. This new material is fast becoming extremely popular for outdoor furniture because of its durability and versatility, and reasonably low price is attractive too. Environmentalists are particularly happy with recycled plastic as it is made of old plastic milk and juice jugs. If you prefer to protect the trees and reduce the mountains of used plastic, then recycled plastic porch swings are for you. This new material, called poly lumber, is resistant to chipping, fading, mold and sun. It is much more substantial than the plastic you used to see on people’s porches. Plastic swings come in many styles and colors like Tangerine to Weatherwood to name a few and you can find them in all sizes – from singles to large 5 foot long ones. You will love them for their look and ease of maintenance and your kids will have endless fun swinging back and forth. All these benefits and it's good for the environment too! Why would you ever look at another outdoor swing?
