+ Poly is a cutting board made out of 100% recycled plastic material. The goal of our product is to serve as a tool when preparing and cutting food while benefiting the environment. Every board is constructed from various reclaimed High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Plastics, such as grocery bags and plastic bottles. By constructing Poly from recycled HDPE plastics, our product is made from the strongest FDA approved plastic available.
+ Observe characteristics of current products on the market - materials, price and size.
