Entrepreneurs - Randy Bishop (Bocci Inc.)
& Andrew Charlton (Brit's Fine Furniture)
Topic - Sustainability in a Throwaway Culture
Two companies find sustainability in creating objects that last a lifetime. Brit's Fine Furniture manufacturers beautiful antique furniture, while Bocci designs hand-crafted glass works of art. The precision and quality that goes into each piece develops a lasting relationship between the object and the consumer.
Both companies sustain use of the raw materials. Bocci uses recycled glass for the majority of their work, while Brit's Fine Furniture plants a new tree for each tree used in their products.
These two concepts satisfy input and output of the products, leading to a more sustainable business future.
