Our Mission

let's achieve a momentous goal together

1 Billion Milk Jugs Saved by 2030

We take pride in the fact that our bins and furnishings are all made from post-consumer recycled plastic milk jugs. The simple act of recycling a milk jug not only prevents it from ending up in a landfill or the ocean, it adds to an extraordinary journey—allowing others to join a common goal of saving the planet.

Setting the Gold Standard

For over 20 years, we have worked with some of the best brands in the world, contributing to their sustainability goals. Now we have set the bar even higher. By doing our part to help the planet by manufacturing bins made with Max-R Lumber™, diverting plastics from landfills and oceans. With your help, we are on our way towards saving one billion milk jugs by 2030.
