Got Milk?

New patio furniture, made from 20,128 milk jugs, was recently installed by Penn Residential Services at the Stouffer College House patio.  The bright blue, red and green chairs, tables and chaises, which were made in the United States by Loll Designs, are constructed of High Density PolyethyleneSheet (HDPE) made from reclaimed milk jugs.  Through the efforts of the company, over 26 million milk jugs have been recycled since 2005. These edgy designs use recycled materials while employing sustainable business practices that aptly suit the spirited Stouffer community and RHS objectives for providing durable, comfortable and eco-friendly furnishings.
