HDPE is made from 100% post-consumer content. It comes from sources like recycled milk jugs. These discarded plastics are shredded into a pulp and compressed into a substrate suitable for milling. We mill the HDPE into Hoek furniture at our shop in Brooklyn, New York.
If you decide to recycle your Hoek furniture, you can send the HDPE back to us. We will ensure the recycling process begins again. The returned legs and chassis are then re-shredded into a pulp. Which is compressed into a substrate that can be milled again. We can complete the recycling process up to 10 times without losing any strength in the final product

sis. The HDPE that we use is made from 100% post co-
nsumer content, which comes from plastic bottles, milk
jugs, shampoo bottles, bleach bottles, cutting boards, a-
nd piping. These discarded plastics are then shredded i-
nto a pulp and compressed into a substrate suitable for milling.
