In harmony with nature
Positive impact for ecology, health and society
Regenerative design is renewal-focused, holistic, and data-driven. The term “regenerate” describes a process that mimics nature itself by restoring or renewing its own sources of energy and resources. We need to think about innovation, not in the context of doing less harm, but actually doing good.
ReGen Collective strives to educate, inspire, and influence a circular lifestyle economy
We create collaboration opportunities that scale high-impact regenerative innovations & ventures across the lifestyle sectors. Our network supports the development of novel products and socio-ecological systems that connect humans with nature, to remediate the harm that has resulted from years of industrial development and manipulative mass media advertising.
Innovation criteria metrics:
How does your innovation use design thinking, science, tech, and data intelligence to...

2. Contribute to net-zero carbon emissions, energy, and water
3. Increase biodiversity - the production of natural, renewable & recyclable resources
4. Enable fair, efficient, and transparent supply chains and services
5. Advocate holistic health & wellness - natural, nutritious & medicinal
6. Offer stakeholders and communities education, equal opportunities, and immersive experiences
lifestyle sector challenges
Food and drink brands dominating retail distribution today are mainly processed products, consisting of refined sugars, unhealthy fats, and toxic chemicals. The companies that own them take advantage of economies of scale in production and have little consideration for supplier ethics.
A huge part of the travel & hospitality industry is shaped by operations involving the singular use of non-renewable resources and a culture that promotes the abuse of alcohol & chemical substances.
The fashion industry is the second-largest polluter in the world and marketing has been a central force in creating a culture of 'fast fashion, resulting in the mass-production of cheap, disposable, synthetic clothing. Chemicals are used in every part of textile production for making fibers, bleaching, and dyeing fabrics.
Architects, interior, and product designers commission the use of synthetic by-products of petroleum, such as plastic - a non-biodegradable resource that pollutes the planet, causing extreme disruption to ecosystems. The most common product types found in plastic waste are food and household packaging.
