We can not avoid the news about the impact of us humans has had on our beautiful environment and it's good to see that companies have started to understand that it is their responsibility to make changes and become more sustainable.
Though what is sustainability?
"Sustainability is ensuring we have a better quality of life now and in the future - it means progressing economic and social development while moving quickly to live within resource limits and allowing the ecosystem to recover." explains Peter Head, Chair of the Institute for Sustainability
Here at Design Relations we are careful who we work with and work with brands who are not only being responsible though are actively making changes so they have less of an impact on the our environment.
Bend Goods are committed to keeping their environmental impact and responsible manufacturing practices at the forefront of their minds. Their workforce is treated with utmost respect and our facilities reduce waste wherever possible. They use iron which is highly recyclable and have designed their packaging to easily ship multiple products per box, minimising our carbon footprint.
Today & Tomorrow
In today’s world, the consumption of products is increasing at an alarming rate, while the life span of those products is decreasing. In many cases, furniture has become a disposable item. At Bend, we aim to make products that not only last based on their timeless design, but also because of their quality construction.
"I think it responsible as a person living on this planet to be environmentally conscious in what you do"
