We’ll start the ball rolling with Formway of New Zealand, whose Life Chair contains 65% recycled materials and is 90% recyclable.
Or from that other land of fjords comes Norway's ergonomic Capisco by Hag, which has its seat formed with recycled plastic car bumper bars and ketchup bottles. Apparently they rescue 200 tons of plastic from landfill each year.
What other worthy contenders are you aware of? (And the Aeron doesn't count, OK, because GP already know about Herman Miller.)
