Recycled Plastic Glider

For Your Front Porch, Deck, or Patio

What we love about recycled plastic gliders is how impervious they are to the outdoors and whether it is a bright, sunny day or a warm moonlit night, a glider is a relaxing way to enjoy the outdoors on your front porch, deck, or patio.



Recycled gliders are virtually maintenance free, is fade-resistant, and they come in a variety of beautiful colors and grains.

They are strong and durable so you will get many years of enjoyment.

Recycled Glider Materials

Did you know that many recycled gliders are made from recycled dairy and detergent bottles? Kind of neat to think how that plastic becomes something beautiful.

High Density Polyethylene Plastic

Recycled gliders are made from either HDPE (high density polyethylene plastic) or polywood (plastic wood). Both products are environmentally protective and used to make many everyday products worldwide.

HDPE is created from used milk jugs and other plastics that would normally be placed in a landfill. The process involves cleaning the plastic using ultra-violet stabilizers along with color pigments and then forming the material into various shapes.




Another recycled material is polywood. It does not absorb moisture, will not rot, warp, or splinter making it ideal for outdoors. Polywood is almost impervious to saltwater, gasoline, paints, and more and is ideal for beach house porches, around pools, and anywhere moisture is a factor.

Recycled Plastic Glider Options

One major advantage of recycled or polywood gliders is color selection. You can find recycled furniture in an array of colors and color combinations that you can use to create curb appeal.

Here are some gliders we found that we think you would also like.

We like the straight lines and simplicity of this porch glider. Grey works with almost any color too.

This five feet long, heavy-duty glider is built to last. Like other recycled gliders, this one looks like painted wood but requires almost no maintenance, painting, or waterproofing.

What we like about the glider below is two things: It comes in many colors but the neatest part is that it has a flip down center console and can seat three people when the console is up.

Glider chairs are perfect for almost any size porch, deck, or patio. They won't warp, splinter, crack or decay and never need to be painted - a true benefit of recycled outdoor furniture.
