Nikki and Sam of Brave Space Design and Timber Line Jewelry
"We started Brave Space Design our furniture company, designing and building new and innovative pieces for living space. However great and amazing a new design can be to create, it will always mean adding another "thing" into our world. We have always considered the lifespan and environmental weight of what we make, past the point of the piece leaving our shop space. Pretty soon after starting our company in NY, we were able to offset our utilities with wind energy as well as making beneficial choices about material use and the finishes we use. We have continued to offset our energy use after relocating our furniture company and also adding a sister company (Timber Line Jewelry) to the mix. For us, it feels like an obvious and responsible action and we are very grateful that there are companies out there like We Are Neutral making it a priority as well as making it extremely easy for people & companies to do."

"We offset because it's the right thing to do. We offset because we know that every step we take has an impact, and we as a people, as a society, should be doing everything we can, however large or small, to make sure that we leave our world better off than the way we found it. Offsetting is not all we do, it's not all we can do, but it is a small and necessary step in the right direction. Any business that cares would do the same thing."
