Why focus on luxury?

Luxury brands are inherently more sustainable, valuing quality across craftsmanship materials, processes and design over quantity. The luxury industry has the capability to drive innovation and make positive changes.

Our Inspiration & Founders

Global sustainability expert, Diana Verde Nieto, joined forces with tech entrepreneur and founder of toptable.com, Karen Hanton MBE. Their collective knowledge, experience and passion helped them find a way to democratise sustainability.

They were inspired by the story of the Large British Blue Butterfly, which became the most successful insect reintroduction in the world when it was brought back from near extinction in the UK. Sir David Attenborough told Diana this story in 2010 when she presented him with his Lifetime Achievement Award, and it exemplifies how we can come together to reverse the negative impact we are having on our planets resources.
