12 million recycled bottles in 3 years
Coca-Cola and Emeco collaborated to solve an environmental problem, saving 111 recycled PET bottles from the landfill for every 111 Navy Chair made.
Every weekday ten truckloads of PET bales consisting more than 20,000 bottles arrive for processing to the recycling plant. These bottles are sorted, ground, and washed to become the primary material used in our 111 Navy Chair. Each individual chair is made of 4 kg/9lbs of rPET plastic pellets or approximately 111 plastic bottles.
