Video showcases Trex's commitment to creating a cleaner environment

Without compromising quality or beauty, we collect, salvage and repurpose plastic, wood scrap and sawdust to create low-maintenance outdoor living products that stand the test of time.

In celebration of Earth Day 2011, Trex, the world’s largest manufacturer of wood-alternative decking and railing products, has created this video message to showcase its commitment to creating a cleaner environment and a healthier future for its consumers and communities.

On Earth Day – and every day – Trex sets the standard for “green” outdoor living. As one of the largest film and plastic bag recyclers in the U.S., every year Trex turns more than 1.5 billion recycled bags into beautiful and durable decking and railing.

Starting in 1992, long before the term “green” was even on the scene, Trex composite technology was used to recycle the plastic waste from Mobil Corporation. Today, the Trex brand has expanded to include a variety of eco-friendly outdoor living products – from decking and railing to deck lighting and outdoor furniture. Trex outdoor living products offer significant design flexibility with fewer ongoing maintenance requirements than wood, as well as a truly environmentally responsible choice.

Green by the Numbers

  •      Zero – Trees cut down to make Trex products
  •      98 – Percentage of recycled and reclaimed materials in each Trex composite product
  •      600 million – Pounds of plastic and wood scrap kept out of landfills each year
  •      1.5 billion – Recycled grocery bags used to manufacture Trex products each year
