Why Shop Re:modern
It's a matter of personal well-being and consideration for the greater good. When you consider the connection between modern lifestyles and the environment, we hope you'll see that individual choices can make the difference towards creating a healthy future.
Re:modern believes in good design. Good design stands the test of time. It opts for quality over quantity, function over frivolity. Good design brings enjoyment to living. It feeds rather than starves.
Good design is inherently green. Unlike modern design from the 20th century, we embrace a new kind of modern that we like to call "re-modernism". Re-modernism looks beyond form and function to also include:
Good design considers lifecycle costs, including contributions to quality-of-life that is often difficult to quantify. When you shop with Re:modern, you'll know that we select each product based on a variety of sustainable factors, including:
Design - Is it designed well to meet functional needs and won't quickly go out of fashion?
Materials - Are the materials used appropriate for the product? Are materials of virgin or recycled content?
Manufacturing - Was it produced with fair labor standards, without exploiting workers?
Packaging - Is the packaging efficient or recyclable?
Transportation - Where did the materials come from and where was it made? How much of the product's cost is in fuel and transportation?
Lifecycle - Is the product constructed to last, or will it end up in the trash soon?
Maintenance - Are there on-going costs associated with maintenance and replacement that were not part of the up-front costs?
Waste / Recyclability - Are there parts that can be repaired, reused, or recycled at the end of the product's lifespan? If not, what are the implications if the item is discarded (biodegradeable, compostable, toxic)? For example, metal, wood, and some plastics can usually be recycled into other products, while vinyl and some foams cannot.
