For every lamp sold we fund the removal of 3 kilograms of ocean-bound plastic from the environment through cleanups and socially responsible recycling programs around the world. That’s about 3000 little fish packets per lamp. To date we have funded the removal of plastic weighing the equivalent of 1 million soy fish packets!
We believe the best way to manage waste is not to create it! We design for sustainability, with a focus on longevity and circular economy principles. Our packaging is 100% plastic-free, made from waste materials like sugarcane pulp, and is completely recyclable or biodegradable.
We designed Light Soy to be treasured, not trashed. We believe that while people are aware of straws, coffee cup lids and bags, there’s a lot more work to be done to eliminate single-use items from our lives. We hope our designs can be a positive reminder to make a difference every day, and inspire designers to create innovative solutions to the global plastic problem.
We fund the planting trees and fund other carbon-sequestering initiatives to offset our impact via Ecologi.
While this is a positive step, we accept that carbon-offsetting is only a temporary fix for the problem and there’s so much more businesses, communities and governments can do to reduce their carbon emissions.
Our team meet virtually whenever possible and use public transport when available, and we seek low carbon methods of transport for our goods when possible.
