“Our products will not change the world, but they can change your mind.” 

That’s not a statement you would expect a company to make. Focused on modern design and sustainable functionality, MIO has quickly become a darling of the green home decor community worldwide. Many of MIO’s products are made from recycled content and are recyclable themselves (some are even biodegradable), creating a true “closed loop” production system.

Founded in Philadelphia in 2001, MIO has been dedicated to making stylish yet eco-friendly home decor items from the very start. “We have encouraged our customers to grow into a greener, healthier, happier and more profitable future,” MIO states on its website. “Guided by the company's philosophy of ‘Responsible Desire,’ MIO has introduced design that strategically harnesses the most eco-intelligent aspects of conventional manufacturing, marketing and distribution methods.” MIO’s Responsible Desire works to integrate sustainability into every aspect of design, production, and sales. MIO adheres to these standards for its products:

• Easy to disassemble for recycling

• Sourcing ingredients locally

• Working only with other companies dedicated to sustainable progress

• Constantly looking for new uses for old technology and production methods

• Openly welcome suggestions and share information with customers.
