Globe Hope was launched in 2003 by Seija Lukkala, the pioneer in circular economy in Finland. Ever since, they have created every product out of existing raw materials; leftovers, waste, recycled, upcycled - you name it.
Core idea is based on their respect for the planet and its precious resources. They have a strong belief that it is for us to design a way out of the mess we have created. They are here to create a better option. An alternative that requires no new raw materials.
They believe there is hope (for our globe). Simple as that.
