What happens to all the milk jugs that have been recycled throughout the years? In 1990, in a garage in Northern Indiana, an innovative idea was taking shape. High school friends noted the high performance characteristics of plastic and its use in outdoor applications. Doug Rassi (President) and Mark Phillabaum (Sales), founders and owners of Poly-Wood, Inc., discovered they could extrude recycled milk jugs into plastic lumber. That lumber could then be used to design and build outdoor furniture with fundamental performance qualities.
