When Grounded Stream first came as an idea, it was supposed to be the universal brand focusing on essential everyday products, that is toward a zero-waste lifestyle, exclusively community based, sustainable socially and environmentally, and connected to the roots of origin of the makers of the products.
The idea of a product that brings value on more than one dimension, and is not "consumed" but it is "prosumed" "transformed"
As went along, and with going deeper into complex system theories and ecosystem mapping and the idea of creating a new system like a future DAO or some sort, the platform was born to become the TOOL presented for the communities to use to be shown higher on the value chain and be directly credited for their work.
Fast forward to today, it was more than once confirmed to us that the communities only work under TWO MODES; 1- For their own good and nothing else and 2- As working for someone else..
The idea of "collaborations" "simbiotic" relationships, or a two way benefit mutual understanding, is too much for them to worry about. This led to many misunderstandings under this limited culture of many years of programing for "survival" and money is our only tribe we care about. (we can understand after many betrayals from the leaders and the banking world towards them)
So the decision today is:
1- We are carrying all production and product design under GROUNDED STREAM TRADEMARK,
2- The platform will be FOR this MARK, showcasing all the communities that come together to have provided for it in resource/service/product
3- ALL catalogues are GROUNDEDSTREAM catalogues. (No whitelabel anymore or merchandise anymore)
