In an industry rife with eco-friendly claims, there’s at least one that
continues to prevail. In an unprecedented nine-year streak, Trex, the
world’s number one premium decking and railing brand, has been named the
"greenest” decking in one of the industry’s most respected surveys –
Green Builder Media’s 2019 Reader’s Choice Awards. Trex is the only
composite decking manufacturer to hold this title since 2009.
This press release features multimedia. View the full release here:
This year’s results are particularly telling, as Trex received nearly three
times as many votes as the next closest competitor, underscoring
the brand’s leadership and strong preference among eco-conscious
architects, builders and contractors.
"After more than 25 years of business, our commitment to producing
eco-friendly outdoor living products is as strong as ever – and being
honored as the ‘greenest decking’ is a title we’ve worked hard to
achieve and to maintain,” noted Jim Cline, President and CEO of Trex.
"Clearly, our adherence to our company’s core values continues to
resonate with customers – both contractors and consumers – who
understand the importance of environmentally conscious building.”
Built on green values, Trex offers consumers a truly environmentally
responsible choice with eco-friendly decking and outdoor living products
that last – without leaving a lasting impact on the environment. As one
of the largest recyclers of polyethylene plastic in the United States,
Trex salvages and keeps more than 500 million pounds of plastic film and
reclaimed wood out of landfills each year. Through a proprietary
manufacturing process that reuses nearly 100 percent of runoff, Trex
transforms these materials into eco-friendly decking and outdoor living
products that have a significantly smaller carbon footprint than wood
The entire portfolio of high-performance Trex decking – including Trex
Transcend®, Trex Enhance® and Trex Select® –
is manufactured from more than 95 percent recycled and reclaimed
materials, an achievement confirmed through the International Code
Council Evaluation Service® (ICC-ES)* SAVE Verification for
Recycled Content. In fact, Trex was the first company in the
wood-alternative decking category to receive such distinction.
"Sustainability is in the DNA of Trex,” added Cline. "From the
beginning, we have been committed to making our products and processes
as eco-friendly as possible in order to offer consumers an
environmentally responsible choice.”
The April issue of Green Builder magazine will include
comprehensive data from the 2019 Reader’s Choice Awards. Green Builder
Media is the leading North American company in the residential building
