It’s Earth Day!

IMG_7448.JPGIt’s Earth Day! The perfect time to plant a tree, start your garden, start composting to reuse material, or simply . . . take your recycling out! At Lifetime, we’re conscious of our community and our role and responsibilities to the environment around us. Did you know that our products are made with a plastic called High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)?  This type of plastic is what makes our products so durable and long-lasting. In making our HDPE products, all plastic materials not used in the initial process are reused! Not only that, but HDPE is an easily recyclable material.

The other great part about producing HDPE is that it’s created using natural petroleum instead of fossil fuels, therefore making the process from start to finish, safer for all!

Why No NBA Label?
Over the years, many of my friends and family have asked me why Lifetime doesnt have the NBA logo on their basketball hoops. Well, the answer is simple. Money. To have the NBA logo on Lifetime backboards, it would cost money. A lot of money. Money that Lifetime chooses to instead put into the actual quality of their products. Whether its using that money for more research, new manufacturing equipment, or improved materials, the end result is a higher quality product for you. As a former employee, I can assure you thatthis philosophy carries through all aspects of Lifetime. You wont find any lavish corporate offices at the Lifetime Products headquarters in Clearfield, Utah. No marble floors, revolving doors, or plush corner offices with beautiful wraparound windows. Nope, far from it. The Lifetime Products headquarters are ac...
Win Two Lifetime Modular Cabinets!
This giveaway has ended. The holidays may be gone, but more than likely, they left behind a lot of new "stuff" for you to store or stash. Whether it's new toys, outgrown toys, Christmas decorations, craft supplies, or tools, reorganizing after the holidays is sometimes an overwhelming task. (No wonder the National Association of Professional Organizers has declared January as "Get Organized" Month!) That's why we thought this month was the perfect time to give away two Lifetime Modular Cabinets to one lucky winner to help solve those storage problems! As you saw last week in Charyls' blog post, the Lifetime Modular Cabinets are attractive for use in your home or office, yet strong and durable for use in your garage. The cabinets can be used freestanding on the floor, or hung on the wall. And, by using multiple Lifetime Modu...
Lifetime Garden Beds Are BPA Free
Some of you have asked if the plastic panels on the Lifetime Raised Garden Bed contain BPA (Bishphenol_A). Good question! BPA is a plasticizer that is used in the manufacturing of PVC (Polyvinyl chloride, recycling type 3 7) and other polycarbonate plastics to make them flexible. It is used mostly in flexible PVC piping, toys, plastic bottles, and the lining of some canned goods. In 2008, BPA became controversial as research indicated that it may be dangerous to our healthespecially to babies. The US Food and Drug Administration has now taken steps to reduce human exposure to BPA in our food supply and food containers. The good news is thatLifetime's plastic garden bed panels and the frost coverDO NOT contain BPA. They are a Green Product. We use high-density polyethylene plastic (HDPE, recycling code type 2), and non toxic...
