CEO of Pollima
Ardilla is the CEO of Pollima, the world's first carbon-negative furniture start-up using hemp byproduct for tables and chairs. Her love of forests has been her guiding light through her life as a natural home builder, interior designer, intentional community co-founder, and now a wood-alternative creator. Ardilla learns through experimentation and finds wonder wherever she walks in the world. The Appalachian mountain range is where she learned to commune with the natural world but as of 2017 she became a grateful California transplant creating community around the circular economy.
