Lydia Sobolenko, the founder of Una Terra
How do you feel when you hear about global climate change? No, let’s formulate it in other words. Let’s be direct and honest. Do you care about the Earth’s destruction that impacts all people in the world, including us? We are pretty sure you heard about all the following events: snowy Sahara, rapid melting of glaciers in Greenland, 47 degrees in Sydney, fires in Siberia and the Amazon, frozen Niagara Falls, an abnormally warm winter in Europe and deaths from frost in North America. July 2019 was the hottest month in the history of the planet. Global climate change is a reality. For several years, we have been living in changed climatic conditions. If we don’t undertake any measures, the situation will get worse.
Everyone has his/her own way of conscious consumption, and I am sure that many of you are already realize the scale of the problem.
I also had my own way. Prior to creating Una Terra, I worked as a marketing manager for Microsoft and as a COO for EdTech. At the same time, I supported homeless pets: I fed, cured and found new owners for them.
For the last ten years, I helped 100 street dogs and cats. I gave a home to 3 dogs and 4 cats from the street. I didn’t tell anyone about this, I didn’t post this information on Facebook, and nobody made TV programs about me. I did this for one reason - I love animals and the Earth. Then I decided that I should devote all my time to taking care of the Earth and the environment. After all, my child lives here too. Thus, I left my position at Microsoft and decided to create some kind of business. At first, I did not know what business to launch, but then I realized that I have to do what I love. In such a way, Una Terra brand of human and pets’ clothing was born.
How do we help the Earth?
People pollute and destroy the environment with the unconscious consumption of items, including clothing. Every year, the world produces 150 billion units of clothing for the population of 7.7 billion people.
People throw clothes like garbage and pollute the planet. If in the 1960s humanity produced 1.76 million tons of textile waste, in 2015 this figure increased up to 16 million tons. This trend shows that the amount of textile waste increased by 811% during half of a century.
Our mission is to clean the Earth by producing new clothes from the old ones.
After all, we have only one Earth. We are a small company, and we are unlikely to be able to change the world alone. However, we are convinced that it is better to do small steps towards a cleaner environment than do nothing. And we also believe that we can change the world together.
Awareness is Everything
Our employees work in a small, environmentally friendly production, not exceeding the officially allowed number of working hours.
