For a sustainable life: how Zero Waste works

For a sustainable life: how Zero Waste works

Waste is a worldwide problem of modern consumer society. Disposal and recycling are difficult and laborious processes. This planet's resources are limited but the mountains of garbage are growing, plastic floats in the oceans and microplastic blows with wind and rain around the globe. A sustainable lifestyle for all is necessary for the survival of the planet. The simple formula to counteract: Produce less waste!

Part 5: Inside and outside cover

Building a sustainable piece of furniture takes experience, craftsmanship and in our case: an extra dose of 100% natural materials from only sustainable sources. We chose to build furniture only in this way, because we believe that we should not live with, or sit and sleep on anything that is built using harmful materials. Harmful for nature, our environment or our own health.

Dangerous waste: More plastic than fish in the ocean

Dangerous waste: More plastic than fish in the ocean

About two thirds of the earth's surface is covered by oceans. If you calculate in three-dimensional space and add the volume at depth, they even take up 90% of the total living space on earth. While we can get a good impression of the flora and fauna of the coastal areas by diving and snorkelling ourselves, only a fraction of the dark deep sea has been explored, estimated to be no more than 5%. But even here the human being has already left traces in the form of microplastics.

Part 2: Building the wooden frame

High quality and longevity through certified wood. We’re now going to engage in construction of the wooden under-frame which is the foundation for the sofa. Since we designed the piece in 3D, we can precisely measure any parts for the wooden construction. We pride ourselves in longlasting, sustainable products and make all of our frames out of solid, FSC or PEFC certified wood.
