For a while now we've been wanting to change the world, so we're going to start with our world because that's all we can do. There is no better time to start than now right? May 2020 was the warmest May on record with global temperatures 0.63°C above average, according to the European Union’s climate change monitor. And you know, it's easy to think, well how can we make a difference as individuals, in Porirua, in Wellington, in NZ right down the bottom of the planet. Well I suppose it comes down to wrong is wrong even if everyone is doing it and right is right even if no one is doing it, and doing nothing has got to be wrong. So, even if, at the very least, what we do inspires a few other people to make some changes then, it has to be a right thing.
When you think about it, the products we buy and the services we use are often designed and manufactured with little thought for the resources consumed in making them or what happens to them at the end of their life.
Apart from the most expensive purchases we make, like a car or house, when something breaks in our modern world most of us just chuck it out and it ends up in landfill. This take-make-dispose mind-set has created a linear economy that's damaging the planet.
We are on a mission to create a fully sustainable, closed gap small business model. Over the next few weeks we're going to communicate what we are changing, how we are going to change it and why.
