With winter in full-swing, that does not mean you need to quit composting. Composting in the winter and cold temperatures is still possible with these helpful tips: Keep your composter in the sun as much as possible. This is probably the same place you have had it all summer, but with the angle of the sun changing as it does during the winter, you may need to take another look and adjust the placement of your Lifetime Composter. For winter composting, keeping your compost a little on the dry side may also help. This can be achieved by modifying your typical brown versus green ratios to a little more heavy on brown. Moisture in the compost mix is necessary but too much will freeze and slow down the helpful composting bacteria, or put these bacteria into hibernation. So, a touch dryer during the winter is better.

Hassle-free shopping right at your fingertips in the convenience of your own home.

It’s that time of year again for a lot of us.  Time to store that kayak away for the cold cold winter.  We are often asked about how to store a kayak while it is not being used, especially during the chilly winter months.  So today, I am here to offer up some winter kayak advice! First piece of advice, kayaks are not for sledding!  They go fast but they don’t like the cold, so keep them off of the snow!  Ok, now for the real tips.  As always, make sure you wash your kayak after use.  This is especially important when you will be putting it into storage for several months.  Mild dish soap and water works just fine, no need for fancy cleaners.  Make sure you remove sand and dirt, even from those little crevices. And, just think about how nice it will be to pull this baby... More

Playground Safety in Your Own Backyard
With the start of a new school year, parents tend to have a lot on their mind. One topic that seems to come up a lot is playground safety. Although Lifetime doesnt influence school ground safety, Lifetime does make a variety of home playground equipment built specifically with your childs safety in mind. We have rubberized chain grips on our swing sets and playsets to prevent little fingers from being caught or pinched, and all hard edges have been rounded or covered. Our UV-protected, powder-coated steel and high-density polyethylene are heat resistant and will not burn kids on a sunny day like many metal or plastic outdoor toys. Our playground equipment passes all playground safety standards to ensure your childs safety. Our playground equipment is built durable and safe; however, it is also important to create a safe envi...
What is Blow Molding?
Blow molding. You hear us say it over-and-over again when we talk about our products. But, what does that really mean? In case you don't know, today I'll give you a quick explanation and show you a few photos to, hopefully, help you understand the process of blow molding a little better. Every plastic product that Lifetime makes starts as white plastic pellets, like in this picture. These pellets are hauled in on train cars to our factory. We usenearly 400train cars of pellets per year! The plastic pellets are then pumped to our outdoor silos and then to the building silos. (If you live near our factory in Utah, you may have noticed a new Lifetime logo towering in the skies. The logo is on our newest silo that stores these plastic pellets.) The plastic pellets are then heated by pressure and colored pellets are added at thi...
