Hello! My name is Luca and I work as an art manager. I help artists and designers to build their online presence and sell their artworks. However, art isn't my only passion. I have always been interested in wider social, cultural and environmental issues. I believe that the problems our planet faces today (climate change, plastic pollution, etc.) are extremely important and we must start changing our habits to save our future. We have the power to change the world for the better!
We all heard about climate change; the cause and the problems it presents. But the majority of people still don't know how to implement the solutions into their everyday life.
In my opinion, as consumers we have a lot of power to change the world by carefully selecting what we buy. Some people become vegan or vegetarian, some people start buying second-hand clothes, others try to decompose. There are a lot of different ways to support a more sustainable lifestyle!
My goal is to help those who want to learn about eco-friendly, natural and low-waste products, so they can support small ethical businesses and save our environment from plastic pollution and toxic products.
This is the reason why I started COGNITION, an online marketplace and community, where people can make more responsible and eco-conscious decisions with what they purchase and use in their every day lives (home-wear, cleaning, beauty, and clothing). The products on the marketplace will be easy alternatives to reduce plastic and waste.
Through COGNITION's blog and social media pages, I would also like to share educational materials about eco-consciousness and plant-based living, and create an active online community.
Why support this idea?
We are all members of the consumer society, but we can decide the role we play with the environmental issues. Whether we can change our lifestyles radically or not, we should still be able to make responsible decisions in purchasing everyday items e.g. food, cleaning or beauty products, or clothes.
COGNITION could help you find the right products, and as rewards we offer low-waste and super practical starter kits or gift vouchers equivalent to your pledge.
By doing so, you support the cause and immediately join the global community of eco-conscious people!
To give back, we will send eco-friendly and re-usable period boxes to 50 women affected by period-poverty, after every 1000 GBP raised.
