While these two "building materials" won't stand up to the scrutiny of the local building authority, they might just work for for a shed, doghouse or patio. And while plastics and vinyls aren't green on their own accord, keeping them out of the
dump landfill certainly is.
While some argue that their durability might be questionable, Matt Glassmeyer, the artist behind the project, says that he "left 100 of these outside for 2 years through rain, snow, and heat to test the durability. They cleaned up perfectly and are in the same shape as any other record. And this porch is on the north side of a two-story house which gets no direct sun."
