Universal Services Products


We are focused on environmental responsibility through sustainable solutions. Starting as an investing partner and eventually evolving into full ownership, Ice River Springs seamlessly aligns with our vision of a sustainable landscape. Ice River Springs is the only North American water bottling company with a plastics recycling operation, manufacturing recycled P.E.T. into 100% recycled bottles using state-of-the-art equipment.

Together, Ice River Springs and C. R. Plastics have created a circular economy where used plastics can be transformed into beautiful recycled outdoor furniture, ensuring that post-consumer plastics are recycled, reused and repurposed into sustainable products.

From our beginnings as a small family operation, our furniture can now be found in outdoor spaces all over the world. We have experienced massive growth over the past 25 years, and proud to be a vertically-integrated company that manufactures all our products in our 300,000 square foot facility in Stratford, ON, Canada.

As we look to the future, our team is focused on maintaining the synergy between the environment and outdoor furniture, with a core focus on developing new and innovative ways to create sustainable, eco-friendly, beautiful outdoor furniture.


What started out as a compassionate goal to save the environment has evolved into a pursuit of innovation and design in recycled plastic outdoor furniture. Our core focus is to develop new and innovative ways to create beautiful, sustainable outdoor furniture.

In 1994, Canadian Recycled Plastic Products Inc. (Universal Services) was founded by two Canadian environmentalists, Jamie Bailey and Trudie Wiseman. Their passion for sustainable living led them to create recycled plastic furniture using a manufacturing process that diverted millions of pounds of plastics from our landfills, rivers, lakes, and oceans. Their goal was to upcycle unwanted plastics into outdoor furniture that emulated wood but would withstand exposure to the elements year-round.

Universal Services Products history


"I’ve had my Adirondack chairs for 10 years and love them just as much as Day 1! No special winter care and no sun fading (and let me tell you, the sun where I live is INTENSE). Worth every penny!"
— Jessica B.

"Just a quick note to say, I don't like your chairs, I LOVE them. Bought 8 chairs for my West Van home and the colours pop, the quality is great, and the weight is fantastic. No more chairs being blown into the sea with these. Great job. Great creative. Made in Canada. Gotta love that to."
