    Minnesota-based startup Yardbird makes beautiful outdoor furniture from ocean plastic - it has intercepted more than 100,000 pounds to date

    Yardbird is an outdoor furniture startup with an environmental conscience, making stylish and affordably priced pieces from intercepted ocean plastic.
    The hand-woven wicker used in Yardbird furniture incorporates plastic collected from beaches in the Philippines. It's the company's way of helping you enjoy the outdoors with a material that would otherwise hurt the earth and take away from that enjoyment.
    While comparable sectional sets can cost around $5,000, Yardbird's costs less than $2,500. They look just as good and are durable and weather-resistant.
