Skateparks to Adirondack chairs

Loll’s history dates back to 1997 with the creation of TrueRide, a design and build contractor specializing in custom municipal skate parks. The TrueRide crew designed, built, installed, and serviced more than 400 custom skateboard parks across the nation and abroad during a 10 year period. In 2007, we sold TrueRide to a longtime friend and competitor in the skate park business so we could focus on lollygagging.

It’s good to be recycled

Originally, we used recycled post-industrial plastic (scrap that has been diverted or recovered during the manufacturing process), but by 2007, we began sourcing post-consumer plastic (material that has been used by consumers and diverted or recovered from waste destined for a landfill). While sourcing material with recycled content was important, we knew there was more to being green. This is when Loll, as both a product and a company, really started to take shape as a sustainability-focused company. We created recycling programs for anything that can be recycled, including recycling more than 88% of our manufacturing waste. We even diverted heat produced as a byproduct of the production process to heat our facility in the winter months. Plus, our #2 HDPE material is one of the most recyclable plastics on earth and can change again into another useful product when that day comes. Loll is part of the circular economy.

Sustainable Materials

Recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE)

All Loll outdoor furniture is made with recycled high-density polyethylene (HDPE), one of the most used plastics in the U.S. Because of its longevity, durability and lack of maintenance, HDPE is used in countless practical applications, such as food containers, outdoor playground equipment, cutting boards, bathroom partitions, and boat cabinetry. Loll’s recycled material is sourced primarily from single-use milk jug containers.

Post-consumer and post-industrial content

Post-consumer content is a material that has been used by consumers and diverted or recovered from waste destined for a landfill. Post-industrial content (also called pre-consumer content) is scrap that has been diverted or recovered during the manufacturing process. Colored material, which makes up the majority of our products, is post-consumer recycled HDPE sourced mainly from single-use milk jugs. The black material in our products is post-industrial recycled HDPE. An estimated eight recycled milk jugs are used in every pound of weight in a Loll chair.

Recycled and recyclable

In making our modern outdoor furniture, we generate waste, too. But, more than 88 percent of the waste from Loll’s manufacturing process is sent to a local recycling plant where it is recycled again. From the HDPE plastic to the aluminum inserts and stainless-steel fasteners, Loll furniture is all recyclable. Through our material reutilization program, customers can send products or parts back to us, and we’ll ensure all the materials are properly recycled and don’t end up in a landfill.

Loll colors

Loll’s material is nonporous and will not collect dirt internally. All Loll HDPE material is colored with pigments that are added during the process of extruding the sheet. Colors are not a surface application but are consistent all the way through the material. All material has a UV package added with the pigment to reduce the effects of the sun and help to deter fading. White, black and darker colors resist fading more than lighter colors.

Made in the U.S.A. to help local U.S economies

Designed and Made in Duluth, Minnesota

Loll purchases materials from the USA to manufacture our products in the USA. This means we reduce shipping distances to our facility. Many products made in China actually start their life in the USA as raw material shipped to China to be manufactured. Then, they are shipped back to the USA as finished goods for distribution. By purchasing products from Loll and other companies who also manufacture in the USA, you help local U.S. economies. For that, we thank you.

Cradle to Cradle® Certifications Emphasize Loll Designs’ Commitment to the Environment and Product Transparency

Cradle to Cradle Certified

The Cradle to Cradle Products Innovation Institute works with companies to set them on a path of continuous improvement, prioritizing the environment and human health.  With many certifications out there, and with even more of them being self-declared, we felt Cradle to Cradle® was the one to pursue in that it demanded third-party verification. Moreover, they provide a comprehensive overview of your company, evaluating you on five categories including material health, material reutilization, renewable energy and carbon management, water stewardship, and social fairness.

Upon being thoroughly investigated in these five categories, we attained an overall Cradle to Cradle Certified BRONZE™ rating for all our HDPE products. Earning a Cradle to Cradle rating in the material health category means the material makeup of our products has undergone a complete review of their human and environmental health characteristics, and has been deemed acceptable or preferable. In addition to providing product traceability, this certification also provides legitimacy for the many social and environmental pursuits we do for our employees and the community.

A member since 2008 Loll is grateful to be a part of this alliance of businesses financially committed to positive environmental change.

At Loll, we think globally and act locally with our donations. A big thanks goes out to the groups listed below for their earnest environmental efforts, but also to our customers who make our donations possible in the most significant way.

Clean Yer Creek

This annual spring clean-up event, dubbed “Clean Yer Creek”, consists of volunteers gathering hundreds of pounds of trash out of multiple watersheds and planting trees along the creek beds.  The aim is to protect the water quality of Lake Superior, enhance our local ecosystem, and spread awareness of the importance of environmental stewardship in our community.

Seeking to align with the sustainability mission of the event, each year instead of using plastic bags, grain bags from a local brewery are reused to collect the garbage.  Additionally, any items that can be recycled, like metal shrapnel, bikes, tires, etc. are taken to the recycling facility.  We also consult the City Forester on which tree varieties are optimal, considering their success against animals and climate changes. Our aim is to ensure they are planted in regions that can address erosion and that they receive the correct protection like fencing and tree buds to sustain their survival.
