Each order of Loop comes with a pre-paid envelope so that it can be returned for recycling. The spun bonded olefin is then recycled into plastic lumber for decks and other weather resistant outdoor and construction products.
Product Service System
Product Service Systems are systems where the services of a product, rather than the physical object are what the customer ultimately purchases. In the case of Loop by the Yard, MIO sells the utility of the material for do-it-yourself projects. The customer is sold the usefulness of the material, the envelope for returning the product once no longer needed and access to the recycling infrastructure.
Loop is a product service system which provides customers the tools to close the recycling loop once the product's useful life is complete. Loop's fun design, durability and unlimited applications encourage re-use. An included prepaid envelope facilitates the recycling of the material.
Loop by the Yard is made, printed and recycled in the United States. The manufacturing facility was selected based on its practices and labor conditions.
