Eco-Friendly Outdoor Furniture for a Greener Backyard
In years past, outdoor furniture has been surprisingly challenging to find in eco-friendly options. Because it faces the elements day in, day out, vintage pieces are often hard to come by—and most new patio furniture is built from plastic and other not-so-environmentally conscious options.
But now, eco-friendly patio furniture is available at even the biggest retailers—whether you want outdoor furniture crafted of plastic that's been recovered from the oceans, built-to-last wood furniture from sustainable sources, or even cushions crafted of recycled polyester.
Before you shop, consider these tips to pick the perfect patio furniture for you—and the planet.
