Numerous communities across the U.S. continue to be impacted by the coronavirus. From restaurant and school closures to shelter in place orders, there are numerous restrictions that severely impact the way that the average American lives. During these dark and strange times, unlikely heroes have emerged. This includes public libraries. Read More
The CDC recommends social distancing as a strategy to prevent and slow the spread of the coronavirus. But what exactly does this mean for community gathering spaces like libraries? Read More
Libraries are essential to the community. They provide information, education, resources, access to technology, and space where people can gather. But the coronavirus has caused libraries to change how they operate. Here’s how.
Who would have ever thought that the products we make for libraries would also be in the coolest bar in Aspen? Recently, we had the opportunity to develop some custom branding items for the Escobar in Aspen. And we are so excited about the way things turned out.
We had just developed a small mobile meeting space for Battery621, the shared office space Supple shares with about 30 other young creative companies that call this space home. Battery621 has a couple main conference rooms, and lots of small niche areas folks can use for personal workspace, telephone conversations, and even a 3000 sq. ft. rooftop deck.
It’s been a while since we posted a blog about what we’re working on here at Supple, so we thought that we’d take this moment to fill you all in. The last few months have been extremely exciting for us. We’ve had the opportunity to work on some amazing projects for libraries, coworking offices, and makerspaces here in our local community, as well as a few out-of-state projects. But perhaps one of the projects that we’ve been most excited about is our work at KND Labs.
One of the great things about being part of a company like the Supple Collection is that we get to meet a lot of amazing people. So many of our partners are doing great things to make the world a better place. It’s really awesome and inspiring to be able to talk with educators, librarians, and business owners about the things they’re doing to make a difference in their community.
Did you know that the world’s human population is expected to grow by two billion people in the next 30 years?1 If this happens, and we continue as we do, we will no longer have the natural resources we need to sustain our everyday lives. A population that large would require about three planet Earths in order for us to have all the resources we need.
Sustainability is no longer just something we should look at, but rather something we must focus on. Our lives literally depend on it.
That’s why it’s so important for us to educate young learners about sustainable practices and get them invested in protecting the environment. By bringing books about nature into our homes and classrooms, we can get young learners excited about nature so that later they go into careers that help support global sustainability.
At the Supple Collection, protecting the environment is always at the heart of what we do. We strive to encourage eco-friendly mentality within the community by supplying libraries with furniture made from environmentally sustainable materials.
Libraries play an important role in educating the community on a wide range of important topics, including matters involving environmental conservation. By equipping libraries with eco-friendly furniture, we hope to prompt conversations about environmental awareness and reduce natural resource consumption in urban environments.
This month, we’ve decided to take a moment to acknowledge some of the great things that libraries are doing to encourage environmental awareness by highlighting some awesome nature-themed books. These inspiring books have been the recipients of esteemed literary awards and have prompted young people across the nation to take action to protect the environment and get outside.
