Founded by an urge to act
The Danish sales and marketing professional Ole Bergstein founded Design Merchants in Denmark in 2019 with a vision to create a company that helps hotels build upon the environmental sustainability movement that rolls across the globe.
´The company works in a green way without going to extremes and with sensible business principles of customer profitability and satisfaction being still in focus.
Ole was very much inspired by the young Swedish schoolgirl Gretha Tunberg, who striked every Friday in front of the Swedish parliament to create awareness of the urgency of beginning to act more sustainably. And Ole was shocked to learn that scientists were surprised by the speed at which the ice caps melted in the polar regions.
Therefore he began studying how to act responsibly as a human being, as a family, and as a business. In this study, he learned that it is very difficult to find the right way in the jungle of green initiatives, as science constantly reveals new facts and studies.
A logical conclusion was to make a living by helping to minimize or eliminate the threats to the globe. And work on the basic principle that if everybody does a little for the environment, then it collectively will have a massive impact on the well-being of our globe.
This is our why.
