Pay $230 For Recycled Chair That Lets You Advertise Coke

Coca-Cola is making up for ensnaring poor little ducks in six-pack containers by making chairs recycled from its bottles — understandably stamped with the company logo — and hocking them for $230, the Atlanta Business Journal reports.

From the story:

The chair — available in red, snow, flint, grass, persimmon and Charcoal colors — is modeled after the original aluminum Emeco Navy Chair designed in 1944 for the U.S. Navy. Each one is stamped on the back with Coca-Cola’s iconic logo.

Each 111 Navy Chair contains a mix of 60 percent recycled polyethylene terephthalate plastic (rPET) and a combination of other materials including pigment and glass fiber for strength.

The chairs, which sell for $230, will hit the market in June and can also be ordered by clicking here. In the United States, the chair will be sold exclusively at Design Within Reach.

OK, who’s planning on picking up a stack of these babies for backyard barbecues?
