Swings for the Summer: Eco-Friendly Porch Swings

Summertime calls for drinking in long evenings outside, and if you've got the space—be it a porch, a tree, or even just an alcove—we'd recommend swinging away those nights in one of these eco-friendly swings. Refreshing beverages and good music are not required, but are definitely recommended.

1 DIY Simple Porch Swing, Lolla Agaton via Remodelista
2 Java Teak Hardwood Outdoor Patio Porch Swing, Amazon.com, $649. Crafted from sustainably-harvested teak.
3 Go Porch Swing, Design Within Reach, $850. Made from recycled plastic and is itself recyclable.
4 Barrel Swing Chair, The Conran Shop, $586. Made of recycled wine barrel staves—but you had us at "wine."
5 DIY Hanging Door Swing, via This Old House
