Smart home buyers are recognizing the advantages of incorporating materials made of recycled plastics into their newly built Trilogy Homes. Keeping with the trend for green home design, the amount of products that are available is now larger than ever before and the possibilities are endless because of the versatility of the material.
Recycled plastics can be used to produce eco-friendly building materials made of HDPE (high-density polyethylene) or PVC (polyvinyl chloride), such as decking, exterior trim and flooring. You will enjoy the advantages of having a sturdy, well-made product that is naturally resistant to rot and mold growth unlike other materials.
Textiles for the home that are created from PET (polyethylene terephthalate) plastics, such as those used for water bottles are now available in different forms. Fibers created from PET are similar to nylon in their durability and offer protection from moisture and stains, while resisting fading. This makes this material a good choice for carpeting and upholstery for your furniture that will continue to last.
Less energy and pollution are involved in the production of recycled products, which is good for the environment. This latest trend in green home design offers several benefits, in addition to reducing landfill waste.
