Sustainability at OneLife

High performance technologies need to protect the planet moving forward. We can no longer be reckless about our environmental impact.

01/13/2021

OneLife

In 2021 design moves to the core of product engineering. Sustainable materials meet functional simplicity to create products that integrate seamlessly with the environment and the lifestyle of their users.

We at OneLife wanted to go for a design that incorporated all our ideas including sustainability which is why we decided against plastic and incorporated a wooden frame instead. Also, since we want to bring the OneLife X into people’s homes, we actually looked at the design from a different perspective to make sure that it's not just functional but also a great addition to your interior. #onelife #CES2021 Christoph Burkhardt

Truth is if you're asking the same question as everyone else, why would you expect the answer to be different?

We need people to ask difficult questions and then have innovators find radically new answers. Now more than ever.

To me, there is no separation between work and life. I've never seen a split between home and office. Kinda strange that it takes a pandemic to make my work life feel somewhat normal. 🤷🏼‍♂️

I've been working with air pollution experts and purification engineers at OneLife for over a year now, this is what I've learned.

San Francisco is deep orange from fires hard to keep under control. The air is visibly polluted, it's raining ash. Growing up in Germany I never thought much about the air surrounding me. It seemed clean. Now, when I look at the city that became home for me years ago I am terrified. Without exaggeration, this air is killing you.

On a regular day our bodies are already fighting small airborne particles from burning fossil fuels, cars and heavy industry. These particles in our air cause allergies, respiratory diseases and asthma. Ultra-fine dust particles though (less than 1 micron in diameter called PM1.0) penetrate deeper into the lungs and cause heart attacks, strokes and cancer. Now add a pandemic and fires into the mix and it is just a matter of time until some of us will experience severe health consequences.

At the beginning of the year I said in a Forbes interview that if you don't have an air purifier, you are an air purifier. Small particles stay in your body, they enter your bloodstream and make their way to your brain. The consequences of poor air quality (particularly indoors) are life threatening.

We now have to handle aerosols that carry viruses like Covid-19. We are facing more raging fires due to climate change. And the number of diseases caused by pollution is on the rise without a concentrated effort to stop it.

Be safe, California. Stay indoors, keep your windows closed and ventilate filtered air only. And for the rest of the world, even if you can't see everything in your air there is a lot that can harm you.

Stay safe. And healthy.

YAY My Podcast is live // OneLife. OneChance. OnePlanet.

There must be a way to build a successful business around real value for users while protecting the planet. I've always believed that. As CEO of @onelife.eco I need to show that this idea can be turned into action. Let's try to tackle a tough choice first. Are we going to be purpose-driven game changers or market-driven pragmatists? And who gets to decide?

We believe it's time for a new generation of tech leaders and their business cases. There must be a better way than either making a lot of money while contributing little to a better world or making no money at all while fighting for what is right, for humans and our planet.

We had to make a choice, a tough one. Who do we want to be as a company? What do we want to stand for? And what do we define as the key drivers of our innovation?

A lot to discuss. Would love to hear your thoughts.
