About this project

FEATURED IN

 

UNIQUE PRODUCTS

Every product we make is truly one of a kind: unique in its personality, style and characteristics. Different colors, patterns and marks evoke the material’s history and previous purpose. The one thing all of our products have in common is the level of creative attention they receive from our experienced production team.

IT’S TIME FOR CHANGE.

Every day, thousands of tons of valuable used materials are thrown away – just to sit in landfills for thousands of years.

DIVERT. DESIGN. DELIVER.

At Sonoma-USA we divert materials to our factory before they end up in the trash, transform them into unique and fun products and deliver them back out to the world – to you – to give them a new, meaningful life.

 

THE PROCESS

MATERIALS

We don’t just focus on one particular type of material but rather work with local businesses to identify stuff in their waste stream that is currently going to the landfill but that has the potential to be turned into something more fun and useful than a pile of trash.

  • Banners, billboards, signage & flags
  • Curtains, drapes & upholstery materials
  • Canvas and burlap sacks
  • Truck tarps, boat covers, bouncy castles
  • Tents, canopies, awnings & umbrellas
  • Fire hose, bicycle tubing, yoga & rubber mats
  • Overstock fabrics, accessories and hardware
  • Apparel, textiles, manufacturing fabric scraps
  • Ropes, leashes, seatbelts, webbing, tie-downs
  • Plastic sheeting, plastic tubing, foam sheeting 
  • and many more…

WHAT DO YOU THROW AWAY? 

Work with us to find new purpose for materials that you, your company or your customers currently send to the landfill.

Let us help you revisit your waste stream, product life cycle and production scrap to find out how you can reduce your cost of waste hauling and boost your sustainability efforts.

SOCIAL IMPACT

We are a socially conscious business and track our impact on our employees and our local community in addition to tracking and monitoring our environmental impacts. To ensure these aspirations are fully developed in our business model, we structured our business as a Benefit Corporation and have started the one-year process to become a certified B-Corp.

 

 

Risks and challenges

To be able to scale our impact and create awareness, we need to develop additional partnerships with local businesses so we are able to divert even more materials.

We also need additional product designers to help us transform these awesome materials into beautiful and long lasting products.

Your participation will allow us to create more quality jobs locally and get the processes in place to obtain our B Corp certification.
