Sustainable Business Practices.

Sustainable business practices brings together social, environmental and economic solutions while focusing on the long-term impacts. Sustainable procurement is used to ensure that corporate purchasing reflects broader goals linked to resource efficiency, climate change, social responsibility and economic resilience. Unwasted endeavors to deliver on our sustainable promise through:

Social Impact.

Unwasted donates 1% of proceeds from our furniture and merchandise to Plastic Oceans, supporting the waste extraction initiatives.

Environmental Impact.

Our products are not only made of recycled material but are recyclable. Designing products out of recycled plastics will result in increasing the value of post consumer products and divert them away from landfill and into our products.

Economic Impact.

We believe leadership today can create an industry based on sustainable business practices and help to rebuild the economy.

let’s change the plastic economy.

Imagining a world without plastic is next to impossible. The economic benefit of single use plastics is too high. While we believe the best scenario is to ban single use plastics and adopt a reuse model, we want to work in coordination with these efforts to help divert as much plastic as possible.

Accelerate the New Plastic Economy.

We want to accelerate the New Plastic Economy by drawing single use plastic away from landfill and oceans and into our bold and functionally designed products.

use it again and again.

We want to design waste out of our current system. We think post consumer plastic can be beautiful, but not in our landfill and certainly not in our oceans.

We will create beautiful, functional furniture from recycled plastic that is itself recyclable so that we are using this material again and again. This is the theory of the circular economy and a mission to keep products and materials in use and regenerate value from all their lives.

If we have a choice, between new and recycled, if we are fully aware of the impact we have, we believe the decision is clear.
