The present paper work is decrease the usage of thermoplastic materials by increasing strength, the replacement of materials in our daily application decreases by increasing the strength of materials it is indirectly helps to the nature because the thermoplastic composites are non biodegradable .The strength of the material increased by natural fibre reinforcement. Lady Finger fibre, Glass fibre and polyester composite specimens are prepared by variable weight fraction (5%, 10%, 15%, 20% and 25%). The fibre and glass fibre are taken 50% in each composition. The fabricated specimens are tested and Mechanical properties of the tested specimens are given better result when compared to the pure polyester resign.
