What does sustainability mean to you? We ask this question every chance we get. Often, the answer varies from person to person. In places that value artisan traditions and craftsmanship, sustainability means durability: an object that lasts. In other places, it means an object with a low carbon footprint. Our co-founder, Sophia Wang, often reminds us that sustainability carries an ethical responsibility: how do you consume in a way that replenishes yourself and the world around you?
For us, sustainability means impact. How much positive impact can you make with what you do, and how can you create even greater impact as you grow? With all the buzz about sustainability in the market (and because we like challenging ourselves with difficult questions), we know the moment has arrived: it’s time to put some numbers behind our words, and share with you the results of our first peer-reviewed life cycle assessment (LCA).
