The RD4 from UK design shop Cohda Designs, is made from 100% waste plastic. It's unique design makes a statement, and the woven chair can flex to accommodate its occupant. No colors are added during manufacturing, and the color comes from the source material itself.

Implications - The shift towards more environmentally friendly products is very current and offers consumers comfort in knowing their product has somehow helped the world. By recycling scrap materials, companies can capitalize on the idea that they are minimizing waste that they produce. Additionally, by creating products that are uniquely designed such as the RD4, companies communicate to consumers who are looking for unique pieces to add to their home decor.
