These days, every company wants to be green. In fact, “green” is in danger of being reduced to cynical marketing hype. Here are three things we are not cynical about:
At Transformit, we are honestly working to lower our negative impact on the earth and its resources.
At the same time, we are working to raise our positive impact on the beauty and livability of the places where people live, work and play.
Third, we are committed to taking good care of our people, and all the people with whom we work.
We believe all of these efforts are part of being green. Thinking green gives us a worthy challenge which will fuel Transformit’s development as a company of artists, designers and craftspeople well into the future. We have a long way to go!
In a way, our green program is a natural outgrowth of our history. Our founder, Cynthia Thompson, is a sculptor who started with not much money in the bank and a lot of projects in mind. So thrift, which goes hand-in-hand with green, was a necessity. Throughout the 70s and 80s, Cindy’s awareness of the toxicity of studio art materials and processes rose in tandem with her awareness of global ecological issues
