Brent Grafton owns Green Tree Plastics.
"We already have in our culture a thought process to throw away", he says.
For ten years Green Tree Plastics has taken discarded plastics --some from other local businesses , schools and community recycling groups.
"Well in the past everyone has been told to throw away the cap...the reason the system we have is set up to recycle those bottles".
The company has formed a niche through bottle caps and plastics that wouldn't normally gel together.
The plastics are minced and grinded through a process called flow molding;turning them into new pieces of decor and furniture.
His highest demanding product are park benches.
Through his ABC program or "a bench for caps"; Grafton is getting the next generation excited about recycling.
"They make that connection between the recyclability of our resocurces", Grafton added.
400 lbs of plastic lids and caps -that's what this factory uses to make one bench.
"The kids are excited about bringing caps in and being able to see what the saved adn being able to use it", Gore added.
Grafton hopes the program will help promote recycling more in today's culture..
"It's educating about recyling and the values".
