Adaptions & Accessibility
Widespread adaptation and accessibility can occur if we invest more conscientiously.
It takes a multifaceted approach to bring together a wide range of people and industries reaching an overall goal of improving communication, coordination, and cooperation when it comes to needed change.
Awareness & Action
For lasting change to occur, so too do people’s values/beliefs.
We’ll strive to inform on important matters in a way that’s easy for people to digest AND take action.

Research~ Reimagine~ Refill~
From use of water and energy to food production and waste management, every aspect of our daily human lives have an impact on the environment. Meanwhile corporations are allowed to pollute in catastrophic ways and government recycling infrastructure is outdated and underfunded. Great strides are needed in minimizing our negative impacts. In some cases, technological innovation can help but often the best answers will mimic the closed-loop systems of nature itself.
If major corporations are left to self regulate or are in the pockets of politicians then they’re not held accountable for harms caused. Clear policy is essential to effectively take action on critical causes. It’s vital that we normalize letting our voices be heard and actively supporting policies that make a more sustainable and equitable pathway possible.
Read~ Reach~ Respect~
Policies and processes that prioritize short-term profits over the longterm wellbeing of planet and people are just plain wrong.
We hope to bring awareness to important environmental matters in a way that’s easy for people to digest and take action.
It is said that we don’t inherit the land from our parents, we borrow it from our children.. Let’s live in a way that doesn’t diminish future generations ability to thrive
Protect and enhance environment for future generations.
Lindsay Thompson, Founder and CEO
Growing up in the landlocked midwest in a Missouri suburb only fueled my fascination of far away rainforests, deserts and oceans. The desire to preserve and protect natural landscapes started at a very young age but I was unsure how to turn this passion for responsible stewardship into a career.
Instead, I ended up getting my feet wet in marketing, media, and event organizing then motherhood
If I was going to let anything take time away from them then it had to be for something that I felt incredibly passionate about.. That and looking at your children I think almost all of us would want to create a future where they have the ability to thrive.
Thinking about the immense environmental issues we’re up against can feel overwhelming & daunting.. But realizing how much knowledge is power (and wanting to set an example for my girls) I decided to return to school at the University of Connecticut to obtain a degree in Environmental Studies and eventually even taking on a research assistant role there. As a school nationally classified and recognized for their high research activity, time spent there was irreplaceable.
My desire is to continuously learn all I can & to dedicate myself to sustainability and being an agent for meaningful change! Thank you for your interest in joining on that journey because it’s only possible together!
