Lifetime boxes? plastic safety concern?

Post  happy232 on Wed May 16, 2012 3:44 pm

Hi everyone, I am trying to find a good 4x4 box that is a little deeper than 6 inches (I will be gardening with my little kids and want to have some room so the mix doesn't end up on the grass =)

I found a Lifetime brand raised garden bed (I can't post the link because I'm new). It's made of "Protected High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE)" I'm wondering if there is a concern of leaching chemicals? I want to have an organic garden.

Thanks in advance for your reply.

PLASTICS - here's a good resource regarding plastics.

HDPE is on the "good" list.

I see a Lifetime bed that's 9" tall so I think that's what you're talking about. There are also plastic boxes with tongue & groove boards where you can stack one atop another.

BTW Hi and welcome to the Forum.
