We just keep recycling plastic bottles and imagining that there must be a use for them. Well, it's not easy to turn post consumer plastic into marketable products. So these high-tech versions of low-tech goods please us.
Xpotential Products produces landscape timbers and parking curbs that are made from recycled plastic composites and shredded automobiles. The curbs are lighter in weight than traditional concrete bumpers, so they are easier (and thus cheaper) to install. They are also more resilient, so they don't chip or crack like concrete, meaning a longer lifespan. The landscape timbers are superior to wood in serveral ways: more durable and longer lasting, and of course, no actual trees are required.
