Yardbird is an eco-conscious start-up that makes recycled plastic furniture available to consumers. Utilizing a direct-to-consumer business model, the company is a great example of a millennial-friendly brand because its practices are rooted in sustainability and provide a cost-effective opportunity.

Yardbird's recycled plastic furniture is ideal for outdoor spaces. The modern collections are easily recognized by the design-friendly silhouettes, the functional comfort-driven properties, and their high quality. What's more, the furnishing company is dedicated to ethical manufacturing practices as Yardbird founder Jay Dillon — a 34-year-old entrepreneur, hired a group of people in Manila to collect plastic from the ocean. They are paid by the kilogram. The materials are then upcycled and used in Yardbird's stylish and outdoorsy furniture designs.
