And although it is a recyclable material majority of High-Density Polyethylene ends up in landfills contributing to our ever-growing issues with plastics. Which are clogging up the earth, waterways, and oceans causing serious issues for future generations. Wooden Sheds require materials that directly contribute to logging and land clearing.
