Reduce your organization's environmental impact.

Owen Wengreen's journey began in the lush landscapes of Washington, where he grew up surrounded by the natural beauty of abundant trees, vibrant forests, and pristine lakes. His childhood was marked by many outdoor adventures and a strong connection to nature. However, one particularly warm summer, everything changed.

Wildfires ravaged the forests Owen loved. Suddenly, climate change wasn’t about future dangers; it was a clear and present danger that Owen felt with every smoke-filled breath.

This experience ignited a spark within Owen, prompting him to consider what he could do to ensure a sustainable future. Drawing inspiration from his passion for design, he recognized that to address climate change and environmental concerns, it was important for businesses to adopt sustainable practices and reduce their carbon footprints.
