Who We Are
Nearly two decades ago, our founder, Grant Harrington, saw an opportunity to transform recycled plastics into high-end construction materials. Armed with more than 30 years of experience as both an entrepreneur and a leader in recycling, Grant made his vision a reality.
What We Do
Alternative Plastics specializes in developing and manufacturing a wide range of synthetic lumber products. Over the past 15 years, we’ve perfected our formulations to produce more than 50 plastic lumber profiles. Our high-quality products provide a cost-effective and enduring alternative to traditional wood materials.
Have you ever wondered what happens to the plastic bags and detergent containers you send to the recycler? The truth is not much. Seen as less-desirable for other uses, most end up at the landfill.
Alternative Plastics goal is to turn unwanted plastic recyclables into reusable products, significantly reducing the amount of waste in our landfills and the number of trees that get cut down for construction materials. It’s a win-win for the environment.
As our business grows, we continue to look for ways to do better—to educate, empower, and innovate. By choosing our products, you’re making a socially responsible commitment to creating a cleaner, healthier world. After all, it’s everyone’s accountability to protect the environment, and rethinking the way we use plastic waste is a great place to start. We’re doing our part. How about you?
