A partnership between Coke and furniture manufacturer Emeco has produced a solid piece of furniture made out of waste.

Coke has teamed up with furniture manufacturer Emeco to create a special version of the iconic Navy Chair. Each chair will be made out of rPET (Recycled Polyethylene Terephthalate) derived from 111 recycled Coke bottles along with some pigment and glass fiber for extra strength.

Gregg Buchbinder of Emeco explains:

“When Coke came to me with this project I jumped on it. It’s a huge investment for a small company, but we have the potential of reusing the PET from about 3 million plastic bottles a year. That’s a lot of bottles and a lot of chairs too. The new chair is the strongest, and most beautiful we can make. We’ve turned something you throw away into something you want and can keep for a long, long time.”

The chairs will be available in June.
