Planet PVC

Oh how we love our plastic!  Nothing has shaped the modern world quite like it.  And it’s virtually everywhere you look:  vinyl flooring, electrical conduit, fencing, water pipes, windows, shower curtains, decking and wallpaper.

Polyvinyl chloride is one of those materials used for its durability and cost effectiveness.  It’s also very low maintenance and can be made softer and more bendable.  PVC is now a popular choice for outdoor furniture, upholstery and even clothing.

Black Friday – it’s Not Just About Fashion

Fashion, eh? It comes and goes, then comes back around again, at once fleeting and eternal. A style is in one month and then is never heard of again – until it is heard of again, of course.
