Outdoor Furniture Spotlight: Colorful, Recycled Designs from Loll

August 11, 2016

We love an Adirondack chair, but we don’t love splinters or rotting wood. Enter Duluth, Minnesota-based Loll Designs, with chairs, tables, and benches made from recycled HDPE plastic (mostly single-use milk jugs discarded by consumers). In Loll math, one Adirondack chair equals 376 milk jugs, and since 2005 the company has turned more than 46 million of them into modern outdoor furniture.

Loll products are made in the US and require no maintenance; they are waterproof, UV-resistant, and easy to clean. We also appreciate the company’s designer collaborations, including one with Gardenista favorite Brendan Ravenhill. Here’s a look at Loll’s furniture line:
