From something negative comes something positive.
Today, we stand poised to reach our goal. But we realize that being neutral is not enough. We feel challenged to take on a new mission: to go beyond reducing negative impact to creating a positive one—going from Negative to Positive.
The Goal is in Sight
The global numbers tell a compelling story.
Changing the face of industry
Our quest for cleaner energy embraces a wide array of alternative sources, from methane to cocoa to fish heads. And our search for earth-positive raw materials is helping communities in ways unimagined a generation ago.
Take our Net-Works® program. It helps residents in impoverished fishing villages collect discarded fishing nets (a threat to marine life) and sell them into a global supply chain. The result: Those destructive, broken nets gain a second life as beautiful, long-lasting carpet tile.
Designing a More Beautiful World
Drawing inspiration from some of the world’s most enduring hand-crafted textiles, the new World Woven™ Collection opens up a new world of design possibilities and references nature through its irregular patterns and colour variations.
What comes next?
Every person, every organization, can have a positive impact—can be “a rainbow in a cloudy sky” in the words of our founder, Ray Anderson.
Stay in the loop when we announce how you can join us and read about our efforts in the wake of the Paris COP21 climate talks.
Negative to Positive: Everyone Can Contribute
From the designer who asks, “How can I transform this space for the better?” to the youth group committed to cleaning up their local waterway, every one of us can be part of the movement.
