We believe in collaborations. Our mission is to lead and build an eco-system of like-minded individuals and companies who believe in sustainability and taking action to protect and preserve our planet and look to connect with people who share our goals. The following are some of the good people that we are working with. As part of our commitment to building this eco-system, Semula is happy to introduce our partners to those who are interested.
In our journey, we have been inspired by many things around us – people and places, everyday activities, organisations which walk the talk on sustainability and, of course, our natural environment. Here are some stories that continue to inspire us and keep us awake at night, thinking of what more we can do to put things right for this one and only planet that we have.

The Local Tree Project is a one-of-a-kind sustainability furniture initiative by Roger&Sons, a team of ethical makers and mavericks who create bespoke fine furniture and objects. Over the next decade or so, about 13,000 trees here will be felled. Rather than letting them go to waste, R&S is repurposing them into products that people can continue to enjoy for years . Through this initiative, the team hopes to change the way people think of local resources such as trees.
