Chairs Go Better (and Greener) With Coke

Think green home furnishings and it's all about bamboo, reclaimed wood and low-VOC varnish? Typically, yes. But now we have the folks at Coca-Cola making chairs out of..you guessed it...their old soda bottles.

In one of the most unusual corporate mash-ups in recent history, the soft drink giant has teamed up with the furniture manufacturer Emeco to produce a new chair made from its recycled plastic bottles.

It's true: many of those evil discarded plastic bottles which litter the streets and end up in landfills will now be repurposed into a sustainable designer chair - the 111 Navy Chair - each made from approximately 111 recycled 20 oz. bottles.
