About Grain

Grain is a design practice dedicated to social and environmental responsibility. Our work has grown and shifted over the years from practical solutions such as recyclable shower curtains, to developing sustainable income opportunities for weaving cooperatives in Guatemala, to designing heirloom quality furniture and objects from natural materials and finishes that you can trust to be clean and safe for your home and family. We limit ourselves to working with materials that are long-lasting, non-toxic, made using recycled content, made from well managed renewable resources and/or are reusable or recyclable at the end of their useful life. We also offer vegan options on all of our designs. In 2022, we became a certified B Corp.

01 Measure

Grain measured Scope 1, 2 and 3 cradle-to-customer emissions following categories and approaches established in the Climate Neutral standards.

02 Offset

Grain invested in projects outside of their value chain to compensate for all of their measured carbon emissions. This step supports their climate neutrality designation, and enables Grain to take responsibility for historical emissions that can’t be reduced.

03 Reduce

Grain is implementing a Reduction Action Plan to reduce emissions from within its own operations and supply chain.

What is Climate Neutrality

A state in which human activities result in no net effect on the climate system. Requires balancing of residual greenhouse gas emissions with reductions or removals. All Climate Neutral Certified brands must meet climate neutrality standards for measuring, offsetting, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions from making and delivering products and services.
