Sustainability at Transformit
Our efforts to be environmentally responsible are in our roots. Our founder, Cynthia Thompson, is a sculptor who started with not much money in the bank and a lot of projects in mind. Thrift, which goes hand-in-hand with sustainability, was a necessity. Equally, Cindy’s awareness of the toxicity of studio art materials and processes rose in tandem with her awareness of global ecological issues. This experience guides our efforts to choose materials wisely and deliberately with health and environmental impact in mind.
These days, every company wants to be green and “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. We recycle the scraps from our work. We reuse materials when able. And we're upgrading our heating, cooling and lighting in our shop and warehouse to reduce our energy footprint.
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.
Thinking "green" gives us a worthy challenge which fuels Transformit’s development as a company of artists, designers and craftspeople well into the future. We have a long way to go!
