Wallace & Turner Insurance spoke with our insured David Cook, owner of Plastic Lumber Store in Springfield, Ohio to learn more about his innovative company, and the range of recycled products and services offered to the community.
When was Plastic Lumber Store established and what prompted opening the company?
Plastic Lumber Store was established in 2009 and our physical retail store opened in 2017. We wanted to offer something new and unique: long lasting, green building made from recycled materials.
What services/products do you offer?
Our main offerings include: recycled plastic lumber, plastic sheet and furniture; recycled rubber mulch, mats, pavers and landscaping products; LED lighting – interior and exterior; and solar solutions.
It looks like you can create a variety of customized products. What’s the most interesting/unique customization you’ve done?
Solar furniture, where you can utilize long lasting plastic furniture combined with the plug-in feature of solar power.
You have both a store front and online shop—will customers find the same products at each?
We can build and customize many projects so there’s really endless possibilities whether you shop online, stop in the store or give us a call. We’re happy to discuss options and make recommendations.
Anything else potential customers should know?
Recycling uses less energy than making a product from scratch and reduces the amount of waste sent to landfills and incinerators. It also helps conserve natural resources such as timber, water and minerals, and prevents pollution by reducing the need to collect new raw materials. This allows our costs to be substantially lower than buying, maintaining and replacing similar wood items.
