Circularity & Design
A conversation with Maria Fryd Wehler, a pioneer in the sustainable furniture industry.
“I often feel that I am the annoying one to have at a dinner party because I am constantly discussing the issue of environmental sustainability; it can feel very lonely.”
Maria Fryd Wehler
Can you share a fond memory that has inspired your journey to protect our planet?
Having kids. Having kids was, for me, the craziest eye-opener of wanting to leave this planet better than how I got it. The point is that I am doing it for my kids. One day, they will ask, ‘Why didn’t I do anything?’ I really want to be able to answer that I really tried. But my naive self hopes that they will instead ask me, ‘How did I do it?’
