Every Day is Earth Day: Incorporating Sustainable Practices Into Your Lifestyle

Every Day is Earth Day: Incorporating Sustainable Practices Into Your Lifestyle



In a world where the production and use of household goods significantly contribute to worldwide emissions, it is important that we prioritize sustainability. Here at Capella Design, we acknowledge the urgency of climate change and are passionate about preserving our planet for future generations. Join us as we look at the importance of taking care of the planet, our commitment to sustainability, and how you can play a role through everyday actions.

The Importance of Environmental Responsibility

The statistics are staggering: household goods alone account for over 60% of worldwide greenhouse gas emissions. The heavy impact that our consumption habits have on the environment makes it clear that we all have a responsibility to take action and reduce our carbon footprint. At Capella Design, we believe that both individuals and companies share this responsibility.

How Capella Contributes

Sustainability is a guiding principle that helps shape every decision we make. From the materials we use to the way we package and ship our products, we are committed to minimizing our environmental footprint at every stage of our business processes.


We use durable materials, creating a longer lifespan for our products. We also gravitate towards recycled and repairable materials to further the sustainability of our products. Our Lotic Shower Seat is a prime example of our commitment to sustainability. While the wood might resemble teak, NewTech Wood’s composite products are actually made from a unique mix of extruded recycled plastics and recycled wood waste. This not only reduces waste but also ensures that the seat is durable, repairable, and eco-friendly.


We are proud to manufacture our products in North America! We make every effort to work with local manufacturers who adhere to ecological standards every step of the way. Through local production, we minimize the environmental impacts of unnecessary transportation and support our local economy.

Packaging & Shipping

We have reimagined our packaging and shipping practices to minimize waste and reduce emissions. Our shower seats are shipped disassembled, allowing us to take up less space when shipping. This leads to more efficient shipments, less packing material used, and an overall smaller carbon footprint.

How You Can Make a Difference

While we are focused on doing our part to help protect the planet, we recognize that real change requires collective action. There are many ways you can reduce your environmental impact and embrace the earth in your everyday life. You can start by prioritizing buying from sustainable and long-lasting companies such as Capella. Further, you can prioritize buying from producers with ethical practices and focus on timeless pieces over trendy pieces.


At Capella, sustainability is not just a trend but is a core value that drives everything we do. As seen through our utilization of eco-friendly materials and our responsible manufacturing and shipping practices, we are committed to leading the way in sustainable accessible design and invite you to join us on this mission. Last year, we made a video highlighting our sustainability practices. You can check it out here.
