Shop For Environmentally Friendly Outdoor Furniture
Opt for a patio set that is made from a green material rather than PVC that can have a negative impact on your health and the environment. Plastic lumber is made from plastic like yogurt containers and looks like wood! It's durable, fade resistant and available in a variety of colors.
If you really want wood furniture (like me) choose products certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (stamped FSC certified) to be sure that the wood was harvested responsibly.
