"The end result isn't the goal, the journey sometimes is...choosing the right partners to make and influence change. In life and in business."
We thought long and hard about what we wanted to say here. Did we want to talk about why we chose our business partners, what questions we asked and the open discussions we had with all parts of our supply chain, or what "good" looks like.
To be honest, it’s a bit of everything!
We started off quite idealistically with our approach to materials and who can produce them. What we found quite early on was that there was a big gap between expectations and actual reality.
It has been an 18 month long process on a bootstrapped budget to source manufacturers who have demonstrated the same commitment to organic and biodegradable quality solutions that we have been trying to create. This has been through a process of learning, understanding and seeing where the materials are grown, sourced and put together to bring you a solution that we feel proud to bring you. A solution that espouses our values of quality and environmentally consciousness.
By mapping out our end to end supply chain we have been very intentional about targeting partners who have been able to demonstrate the circular economy model that is critical for us. From material sourcing, to production, to delivery to you. Each element of this flow has been carefully selected after rigorous vetting and due diligence. And not to mention the way it all fits together into a circular economy. We want both ends of the supply and use chain to meet - allowing us to keen the cycle of creation and recreation going.
At Lotus.Eco, the journey is as important as the end goal. We believe strongly in being able to make and influence change as we navigate our way through this world that already has so much to offer!
To us, you are also part of this journey and we are so excited to see what we can create together.
