Design is an expression of the way we interact with the world. It is the force that drives our exploration and connects us with the environment and the people around us. To us, design has intrinsic value and is a form of communication that has no boundaries.
Eco-Design What It Means To Us
Growing up in the Pacific Northwest meant being inspired by the natural environment. As we step out our door, we are immediately engulfed in a world of motifs. We can travel an hour in either direction to find the colors of the ocean or the geometric shapes of the mountains. This unique and cultivating experience has always shaped the way we shop, design and live.
When we started Soluna Collective, eco-design was a way of protecting the world we knew. As Soluna has grown, that mission has expanded out of our backyard, to places like the Himalayan Mountains and the Ganges River in India. The voices of these places ring loud in our design process and our business is dedicated to their survival!
1% For The Planet Members
Being a eco and ethical conscious brand means more than just doing no harm. As a member of 1% For The Planet, we pledge that 1% of all gross profits are donated to an approved environmental non-profit. We have chosen to team up with Navadanya a women led, organic farming non-profit based in Dehradun, India. They have helped more than 500,000 Indian farmers secure access to organic/indigenous seeds and developed an online platform to help them farm organically.
Our eco-design mission is to eliminate harmful chemicals, reduce waste, spread awareness, and be as sustainable as possible. More importantly, we take responsibility for our designs.
We have set high expectations for our products and partnered with companies that believe in the same. We are far from perfect but as we grow, we will work hard every day to improve our sustainable practices.
