Process Specialist

🔭 Our mission & vision

We care that climate change and waste are ruining the planet. So we did something about it.

First we joined the circular economy to remanufacture office furniture, saving clients money while reducing greenhouse gas emissions and waste by 80%.

Recognising that remanufacturing is only dealing with some of society’s waste, we then created exciting furniture designs using materials like post-consumer waste plastic.

Creating UK jobs did not feel like enough, so we pushed for more social value. In 2016 we did our first project (Public Health Wales Cardiff) with a team of eight local long-term unemployed with disabilities. They did a great job, with the project winning seven national and international awards. We have continued this approach on projects longer than 3 months in duration (to provide a meaningful period of work) in regional areas around Great Britain.

In 2021 we began our delivery and installation collaboration with Connection Crew, which employs former homeless individuals.

Our approach has generated wonderful support, for which we are very grateful. We rely on our supporters to spread the word about our sustainable approach. Thank you.

We celebrate the determined individuals who overcome the inertia of convention to create beautiful, affordable and sustainable offices – proving the naysayers wrong, challenging the wasteful and expensive practices of those making furniture from virgin resources, and setting an example for others to follow.

The world needs more heroes like you.
