If you’re wondering where all your recycled plastic milk jugs go, the Canadian Recycled Plastic Products can show you.
C.R. Plastic Products manufacture outdoor furniture using recycled plastic milk containers. Their products range from a variety of tables to an assortment of chairs.
Bernie Whetter is the owner of the Green Spot Home and Garden Center in Brandon. Whetter says the CRP Products are a favorite item for those who want to brighten their back yards with these colorful furniture pieces.
“We still like to talk about our CRP furniture,” says Whetter. “It’s an exciting line of products and we’ve been carrying this product for 8 years now. They put out 2 new colors this year, burgundy and aqua, so we’ve got pretty much the whole spectrum of colors that can match with anything that you’ve got going on in your backyard.”
“The neatest thing about this is that it is 100% recycled and so we know that the recycling process is happening.”
Manufactured in Stratford, Ontario, the furniture is made for Canada’s hot Canadian summers and cold winters and so they don’t fade, crack or split.
“Whatever your wooden product does, this will not do,” he adds. “It’s made in Canada so it knows how to survive our Canadian winters!”
