Recycled dairy and detergent bottles are turned into high density polyethylene (HDPE) lumber to construct these Adirondack chairs. That means that unlike wooden chairs, these won’t need to be re-stained. In fact, they require very little maintenance and carry a 20-year residential warranty. The aluminum tabletop frames, (which are not pictured here,) are finished with an exterior UV-grade powder coating and the fasteners are marine-grade stainless steel, so they’re made to withstand the elements.
In addition to the “Yarmouth” style chair pictured here, there are a variety of other styles available. There’s also a wide range of colors – 16 in total – ranging from the “tangerine” shown in this photo and an equally summery yellow, to more subdued shades such as “sand” and “weathered wood.” $330.
