Branching out to mainstream consumers, the Sierra Club has teamed up with the Parsons Design Lab to develop collections of dinnerware and glassware. The Parsons students were inspired by the Sierra Club’s mission of environmental protection and preservation, and designed patterns through an examination of natural elements and textures. Simple, clean, and modern, the collections evoke an abstract reference to the purity of nature.

The Sierra Club is currently exploring potential partnerships with manufacturers to market and sell the collections. Having teamed up with other non-profit organizations and corporations for product development in the past, the Design Lab teaches students real world design and business strategies.
