If you are looking for a “green” planter solution to match your green thumb then Loll Designs offers one of the best products out there. Their container series features a number of different sizes and shapes to accommodate most any household plant or small garden. Each one is made from 100% recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE) which is the same plastic used in any milk jug. In fact, Loll has calculated how many recycled milk jugs would go into each one of their products and proudly displays it in their online shop. Containers are weather proof and will stand up to the test of time while being easy to maintain and clean.
The material is LEED certified and while their manufacturing facility and headquarters in Duluth, Minnesota is not it is pretty darn close. The area was a brownfield site that they cleaned up and reused existing structures to create a modern facility that uses natural light and ventilation and passive solar heating. Their manufacturing method is also eco-concious. They have 5-6 week lead times to make sure they are getting the most out of all the material they make plus a CNC shop bot to make precision cuts.
