About Us

What We Do

Our Mission

Contributing to environmental sustainability by creating attractive, long-lasting Smartawood™ products.

For seven years, we’ve been recycling, processing and designing sustainable outdoor plastic wood products. Our mission is to save plastic waste packaging that is otherwise destined for landfill or incineration. We repurpose this waste, transforming it into durable and practical Smartawood™ products that require no maintenance and have a positive environmental impact.

How We Do It

Creating Eco-friendly, Highly Durable Products

Plastecowood has spent a decade developing the technology to turn Smartawood™ into the innovative product it is today.

We have a great passion to protect the environment, so have made sure that Smartawood™ contributes to environmental sustainability. Smartawood™ is created using a proprietary process which is the most cost effective process in the world at converting mixed plastic waste into exceptional durable products. Unlike timber, Smartawood™ has greater longevity and does not release captured carbon into the atmosphere. Smartawood™ is not only great for external spaces such as seating for eating in pubs, but it is also a uniquely ecological option for outdoor furniture.
