Beneath a boardwalk outside Newcastle, a large recycled-plastic profile acts as a support bearer. NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service used the 225 mm x 320 mm in a 7 metre length. The recycled-plastic is particularly well suited for coastal areas due to its resistance to salt water.
The large profiles are longer lasting than wood, promising not to rot, shrink or warp, remaining resistant to marine organisms. This particular profile has saved an astonishing total of 113,750 plastic bags from landfill.
