Adirondack Chairs ~ The Generation Line

We have been lounging on our eco-fabulous Adirondack chairs by C.R. Plastic Products every day possible this spring.  These ergonomically designed chairs are as comfortable as they are stylish.  The Generation Line is plastic, but not the flimsy, lightweight, stackable chairs that are seen on most decks.  They have reinvented the classic wood Adirondack chair into a green product crafting it with solid “plastic lumber” that will last for decades.  Of course this just isn’t any plastic being used, it is unwanted material that is destined for a landfill, but instead being recycled into a sturdy plastic.  This also means that the end-user doesn’t have to worry about splitting, cracking, rotting, or peeling wood that the elements would have on traditional Adirondack chairs.

You can choose from an array of 15 different designer colors and styles. We chose the gorgeous bright orange that is not only my favorite hue, but it pops against the green garden.  It was easy to assemble with two people and the You Tube video the company posted to assist makes it even more simple.

C.R. Plastic Products has created beautiful, functional designs from recycled  plastics since 1994. Their eco-friendly operation has expanded from a small family business to selling their eco-friendly products worldwide. Creating new goods made from recycled materials helps to conserve finite resources and lessen our waste.  As we, at Living Aware, have advocated to our faithful readers, if we all purchase recycled products we all keep the green cycle turning.   We are elated that C.R. Plastic Products shares our same ideals.  We appreciate their quality, hand-crafted, maintenance free, durable, environmentally friendly products and their chic, classic design.  If you’re in the market for outdoor furniture, this is the place to go.

Woolly Pockets

Last spring we were looking for an exterior planter that we could hang around the deck railing.  We wanted something modern that was eco-friendly that would last more than a year or two without deteriorating.  The Woolly Pocket was the perfect solution for our garden.

Woolly Pockets are made from 100% recycled PET that is created into a breathable felt allowing for moisture to evaporate and the roots to air prune. The sacks hang easily from any wall or railing to create a beautiful vertical garden.  Woolly Pockets are made in the United States and come in a variety of colors like peacock, black, chocolate, and green.  For interior pockets, the Reservoir  system has military grade moisture barrier keeps the wall dry from watering and moisture in the soil. 

For the Seattle climate we opted for the No Reservoir system that allows excess water to drain. We used the peacock-blue  Wally Three and two of the Wally One pockets to wrap around the deck to add a vibrant splash of color.  After a hard winter the pockets still look great and we couldn’t be happier.  The No Reservoir pockets for your exterior gardens are on sale and free shipping is offered for any order over $150
