VANCOUVER, BC (September 23, 2021) — With EFFYDESK and ChopValue’s successful initial collaboration of the TerraDesk, an eco-friendly height adjustable desk made from 10,854 chopsticks, they have teamed up to expand their work and learn from home line with the Closed Loop Collection.
EFFYDESK, a leading provider of ergonomic office furniture, and ChopValue, a designer and manufacturer of circular economy products made entirely of recycled chopsticks, announced today their new Closed Loop Collection, a beautiful and innovative line of sustainable home office furniture.
The Closed Loop Collection builds on the successful first collaboration between EFFYDESK and ChopValue that resulted in the popular TerraDesk, an eco-friendly height-adjustable ergonomic desk made from 10,854 chopsticks. The new collection expands on their existing work-and-learn from home line, and is being launched in time for the back to school season.
The Closed Loop Collection is thoughtfully designed around creating a highly productive and comfortable work environment. The collection features a new rolling cabinet equipped with lockable casters and fully extendable drawers to organize any workspace, and a footrest designed to relieve fatigue and foot tension caused by long days at the desk.
“We are proud to challenge the status quo of our industry, which has always categorized materials as either being good for the planet or high performance, but never both,” said Dickson Lam, Founder and CEO of EFFYDESK. “Our latest partnership with Felix and the ChopValue team further demonstrates our ongoing commitment to support eco-friendly materials for a more sustainable future.”
“We are thrilled to be collaborating again with EFFYDESK, and to be able to provide them with sustainable material alternatives to what is conventionally available,” said Felix Böck, Founder and CEO of ChopValue. “Making the circular economy the new norm is something that no brand can create alone, and we’re thankful to Dickson and his team for sharing our vision.”
The Closed Loop Collection recycles over 15,532 chopsticks and stores 22,599g of CO2, and is now available at www.effydesk.com and www.chopvalue.com.
