Sustainable Business With Kresse Wesling

18th May 2020

Since 2005 Elvis & Kresse have rescued materials that would otherwise go to landfill, transformed the material into beautiful products and donated 50% of profits to charities related to the waste.

In the second in our Passion, Purpose and Making A Difference series, co-founder Kresse Wesling explains:

  • the values and principles that shape their business decisions;
  • how this nimble innovator partnered with Burberry and Eletrolux;
  • what the next big project is and why Bill Gates rates it;
  • the value and beauty of artisan craftmanship and
  • the business constitution that priorities people and planet over shareholder profit.

This is a delightful, thoughtful, insightful interview with a company owner who lives with passion and purpose while focusing on people and planet.
