Since its founding in 1996, Trex has built a culture of using sustainable materials throughout its product lines.

The company utilizes plastic bags and sawdust scraps in its manufacturing process in its composite decking, using more than 850 million pounds of polyethylene film and reclaimed wood fibers in its products in 2019 and surpassing 900 million pounds in 2020.

On this week's Stef Talks Trash, hear from Bryan Fairbanks, the CEO of Trex, who talks about the company's commitment to sustainability, the ebb and flow of the material sourcing process and how commodities markets have changed throughout the years.
