By all accounts, spring is on the way. Time to get out those lawn chairs and ready them for their summer workout. If scrubbing and/or refinishing lawn furniture isn’t your idea of how best to spend the first warm weekend of spring, consider going green by purchasing outdoor furniture that’s sustainable, low maintenance, and good looking.
By the Yard is another Minnesota maker of outdoor furniture that manufactures its line from recycled plastic milk jugs. The no-maintenance furniture—Adirondacks, gliders, benches, tables, and more in a selection of earth-tone colors—will appeal to more classic tastes. Find the furniture at the company’s showroom in Jordan.
Trex, another line of outdoor furniture made from recycled milk jug lumber, added a new selection of vibrant colors to its line of traditional neutrals this season. The tropical colors include Sunset Red, Aruba (aqua), Lime, and Pacific Blue. Made by Trex, the manufacturer of eco-friendly decking, the furniture is 90-percent recycled content, durable, weather resistant, and low maintenance.
