What Our Customers Are Saying

“ I received my circular garden beds to use for my fruit trees as I have clay soil & planting them in the ground was not an option. They are much cheaper and better quality than anything else I could find on the market. I love they way they look and I love that they are made from 100% recycled plastic – also made in Australia. WHAT A DREAM!! Most of all the customer service is AMAZING. I can’t wait to buy more in all different sizes. Keep up the great work Plastic Forests”

About Plastic Forests

Plastic Forests is an award winning Australian company which specialises in manufacturing recycled plastic products, made from used soft plastics. With the closure of Asia to the world’s plastic waste in 2018, we are committed to rescuing soft plastics (such as plastic bags and packaging) from landfill and reprocessing it into our growing range of  recycled plastic products. Consumers, agriculture and industry across Australia generate the huge volumes of soft plastics which are used in our recycled products. We are proud that many of our products also incorporate challenging plastics such as household soft plastics from REDcycle and takeaway coffee cups from the Simply Cups program.

We especially love working with companies to transform their used soft plastics into quality recycled products, which can then be purchased to create a circular economy.

After all, recycling doesn’t work until someone buys a recycled product!

After years of research, Plastic Forests became the first company globally to commercialise a unique dry-cleaning process to recycle soft plastics, without using water or chemicals. Soft plastics (or plastic films) are lightweight and voluminous, and hence notoriously difficult to collect and recycle. Used soft plastics pose an even greater challenge due to their contamination with organic food residues, dirt and hay etc. In Australia, there are few options for used soft plastics other than dumping it in landfill. We sought to develop a better solution to this worldwide environmental problem through our innovative recycling technology.

Today, Plastic Forests transforms used soft plastics into resin and our sustainable range of recycled GreenMongrel garden products such as garden beds, garden edging, stakes and root barrier. We also manufacture a growing range of commercial, agricultural and infrastructure products including fence posts, cable cover, dunnage and air-con mounting blocks.

Our goal is to ‘keep plastic as plastic, at its highest level’ and in the process make the world a better place.

Currently, there is a waiting list for receiving plastic films.
