It is simply wrong to delberately place plastics in the environment. Paticularly those places we need to keep un poluted. They will eventually break down and perneantly degrade our world.
Some misguided people believe it is "green" to use recycled plastic instead of timber for access provision. We are actually using our special places as a store for waste plastic
It uses lots of energy and more polymer to convert the waste into a "usable" form. In this form it is variable in quality and performance.
Laughably these recyced plastics are much more expensive than timber.
Some manufacturers, realising the poor performance of recycled plastics, are now making decking using new materials!
This folly needs to stop.
