Don’t Waste the Moment

A Note from our Founder, Ronald Akili - Winter 2020

Some people have called 2020 a ‘wasted year’. But why waste it? In the midst of a global pandemic, climate crisis, economic uncertainty and an international movement for social justice, my passion to create change has grown even stronger. 

Around here, we live by a simple mantra - Good Times, Do Good. We’ve always been inspired by the Balinese way of treating our planet with compassion and respect - celebrating harmony and balance. So we created The Wasted Collective to accelerate this way of thinking beyond Bali, into the world at large.

We invite you to join us on this journey. Our moment is here - why waste it?

The Wasted Collective

We believe that small changes can have an enormous impact if we make them as a collective.  What if we all decided to start wearing only sustainable tee shirts or hoodies? The positive impact on our planet would be massive.

At Wasted Collective, we don’t think you should have to choose between style, comfort, or mother earth. We strive to make beautiful products that are sustainable, so you never have to compromise. We believe in great design, great style and a brighter future for our planet.

Always learning, Always improving

If there’s anything we’ve learned in our years of discovery in sustainability, it’s that there’s always more to learn (and unlearn). It’s a never-ending journey. Our approach to innovation is collaboration, relying on insights and challenges from our diverse global collective of thinkers and practitioners.

With every breakthrough we ask ourselves, how can we make this even better?

We'd love to hear what you think - please let us know!
