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.

In recent years, society has made considerable progress in shifting towards a much more sustainable state of existence. But we’re far from where we need to be. Recent environmental, social, and health concerns have made it obvious that further change is needed, and that sustainability is more important than ever before.
Can you imagine a world without lakes, forests, and fresh air? Since the dawn of time, humans have sought a connection with nature. For many, the experience of being in nature brings peace, clarity, and joy. Furthermore, we depend on natural resources as a society for food, building materials, energy, and much of our daily lives.
That’s why it so frightening to live in a world where natural spaces are vanishing rapidly. Every year, an estimated 18 million acres of forest are lost due to deforestation.1 Unless we, as a society, change our patterns of behavior, the natural world as we know it will cease to exist.
Creating a sustainable world starts with making environmentally friendly decisions in our daily lives, at home and at work. By purchasing multi purpose furniture for your school, coworking office, or library that can be reused and adapted continually, you are helping to conserve precious natural resources and are protecting the environment.
