What is HDPE?

HDPE stands for High-Density Polyethylene. It is a type of plastic that is known for its strength, durability, and versatility. HDPE is made from petroleum and is commonly used in a variety of applications, including bottles, pipes, and plastic lumber. One Sweet Earth chose HDPE for our Harvest Beds because of its durability, resistance to chemicals, weathering, and its ability to be recycled, making it an environmentally friendly choice.

Benefits of HDPE over PVC or Vinyl?

Durability: HDPE is a more durable material compared to PVC or vinyl. Its resistance to cracking, chipping, and fading ensures longevity and value for customers.

Safety: HDPE is a safer choice for Harvest Beds, as it is free from harmful chemicals like phthalates and BPAs commonly found in PVC and vinyl.

Environmentally Friendly: HDPE is an eco-friendly choice, as it is recyclable and has a lower environmental impact than PVC or vinyl.

UV Resistance: HDPE is more resistant to UV rays, ensuring that the Harvest Beds maintain their color and structural integrity over time, unlike PVC or vinyl which can degrade in sunlight.

Maintenance: HDPE Harvest Beds require minimal maintenance, as they are easy to clean and do not require painting or sealing like PVC or vinyl.

Colors: Our HDPE Harvest Beds come in white, black, brown and weathered wood.  Contact support@onesweetearth.com for inquiries on large custom orders for custom color options.

Cost-Effectiveness: While HDPE Harvest Beds may have a slightly higher upfront cost than PVC or vinyl, the long-term cost-effectiveness due to their durability and low maintenance requirements make them the environmentally and economically friendly solution.
