Wouldn’t watching videos of adorable baby sea animals be so much more comforting if you were curled up on a sustainable sofa that was made from over 100 recycled plastic bottles? Enter: Lovesac’s new sofas, called “Sactionals”.

Known for their eponymous next-level bean bags, Lovesac’s new modular sectionals look more like traditional upholstered couches that can be arranged and rearranged from one configuration to another in minutes.

For years, progressive eco-friendly brands have been creating everything from yoga pants to dog beds from post-consumer plastic, and now trash into textiles is becoming a big home furnishings trend. We see this in IKEA’s new kitchen cabinets and even down alternative comforters.

According to the release, Nelson’s company and vision are encompassed by a “Designed for Life” philosophy, emphasizing sustainable quality products that are designed to evolve with the customer’s needs and provide long-term utility—ultimately reducing the amount of furniture discarded into landfills, now two-fold with the new recycled bottle furniture.

And New Yorkers are able to test out Sacs and Sactionals IRL: LoveSac opened its first Manhattan retail location on September 22 in Midtown (at Broadway and 22nd)—just in time to bring a little more eco-style into your home before National Sustainability Day on October 24th.
