Elma, WA-based NewWood  Manufacturing has developed an innovative line of composite building panels that are made of 50% recycled plastic  and 50% recycled wood . In the process, they’ve breathed new life into a town by employing residents of an area in Washington State that has been affected by chronic unemployment. Utilizing post-consumer and post-industrial wood and plastic waste, NewWood is dedicated to making “Better materials to build a better world.” NewWood  makes for a superior building material because it is waterproof, insect resistant, durable and easy to use. NewWood cuts like wood and performs like plastic – and, of course, it’s eco-friendly.
