Teamed together with S.T.E.A.M., which stands for “Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math,” the House of Marley spent last weekend educating L.A.-area children and showing off our earth-friendly gear. With the Marley van in tow, we were able to talk about the environment and why it’s important to use technology that supports our planet.
The event, dubbed S.T.E.A.M Nation, was created to offer inspiration to local kids and help them develop a love of the planet earth and new technology. With children ranging in age from first to eighth grade, 2400 participants explored West LA college and learned more about how the worlds of tech, environment and humans all interact with one another.
One place where all three intersect is at the House of Marley. By showing off our sustainable goods, we were able to demonstrate to these young thinkers that products can be both great for the environment and look stylish at the same time. By using recycled metal, leather, cotton, hemp and water bottles, the House of Marley has been able to create powerful audio gear that helps to remove unwanted products from the wastestream.
