Meet the maker Loll Designs
Loll Designs is an all-weather, outdoor furniture designer and manufacturer with sustainability ethics, zero-waste values, and local manufacturing at the heart of their business. Their outdoor furniture is made with partially recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) derived from milk jugs and shampoo bottles which is one of the most commonly used plastics in the United States. Since 2005, Loll Designs has recycled over 135 million single-use milk jugs to create their modern outdoor furniture. Each of Loll’s sofas, tables, chairs, and planters is intended to be recycled again at the end of its life, with the intention of reducing landfill waste. Manufactured in Duluth, Minnesota, Loll purchases their materials within the United States, which significantly reduces shipping distances, minimizing their carbon footprint, and supporting U.S. economies. Loll Designs recycles over 88% of their manufacturing waste. Cradle to Cradle Certified BRONZE™, Loll Designs’ materials have undergone a thorough review of their human and environmental health characteristics and were deemed acceptable or preferable. They’ve also been a member of 1% for the planet since 2008, donating at least 1% of their annual revenue from their signature Lollygagger collection to local environmental organizations.
