RECYCLING MAKES THE MATERIAL GO ROUND (PART 1)
We've made a little noise, heard by virtually no one, about our sustainability. But hell, as everyone says, we're green, you're green, we all scream about how we're green. Except in this case it's true: the steel we use to make our furniture comes from US-based electric arc furnace mills and the raw material for those mills is scrap steel, virtually all of it post-consumer. Sure, there's quite a bit of energy required to power the mills but we figure that's offset (at least in our minds) by the wicked durability of our furniture (the chairs will outlast you). Anyway, that scrap has to come from somewhere and today we took a trip to one of those somewheres and snapped these "unauthorized" photos—at least the aggressive dude who told us to quit said they were unauthorized. Crazy magnetic pickers and crushing and snipping jaws, the place would be a perfect setting for some Tillman machine-on-machine battling.
