All Pad Outdoor products are made in Los Angeles. They are as conscientiously made as we can manage. The main material, aluminum, is one of the most recyclable materials in the world. In fact there is a good chance that recycled soda cans have found their way back into the raw material from which our planters are made. The spinning process, by which they are formed, requires only electricity and manpower and yields no non-recyclable waste product. The powder coating paint process is nontoxic and RoHS compliant. All the factories that make PAD products pay their workers living wages.
These factors add to the PAD Outdoor story of a company that tries hard to do things the right way, but the main plot line to our story is that we design beautiful products that look beautiful wherever you decide to place them... and we are just getting started.
