As part of the global green movement, Lin Merage and Solne Collections believe in participating in a culture of hope. Everything people do contribute to their relationship to the natural environment, and Lin Merage, the Chief Executive Officer of Solne Collections, provides one way for individuals to make informed decisions about their purchases of everyday things like clothing, accessories, health and beauty items, and food.

This commitment to excellence in organic, earth-conscious living resounds in every aspect of Solne Collections, from the products to its employees. Lin Merage remains passionate about offering new solutions for daily living that help eliminate harmful toxins and volatile organic compounds (VOCs) from household environments.

Lin Merage belongs to Organic Trade Association, as well as the Colorado Women’s Chamber of Commerce and U.S. Green Building Council Colorado. Firmly dedicated to promoting a culture of healthy, organic living, Lin Merage has attended West Coast Green: The World’s Leading Event on Green Innovation Conference, the International Green Build Council Expo, and multiple Summit events hosted by AlwaysOn Network, LLC.

For Lin Merage, Solne is more than a business. It embodies the potential for empowering people in their everyday lives. No detail of daily life is too small for consideration by Lin Merage and her team of skilled professionals at Solne. For example, the company offers a full line of baby products, with everything from blankets and clothes to safe, non-toxic toys. The bodies of babies and toddlers are developing and absorbing everything around them, and Solne understands the desire of parents to surround their children with a healthy, nourishing environment. Lin Merage ensures that her clothing is free of harmful dyes and synthetic material, and that cleaning supplies and home products are toxin-free.

By providing products that are grown, harvested, and assembled using sustainable, environmentally friendly methods, Solne plays an important part in the responsible stewardship of the earth. Practicing informed environmental responsibility allows everyone to live healthier lives today and leave behind a cleaner, more sustainable planet for future generations.

Based in Denver, Colorado, Lin Merage is the owner and CEO of SolNé, an online store that specializes in sustainable, environmentally friendly, and organic products. Merage supports a number of environmentally focused organizations, including the University of California, Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry.

The University of California, Berkeley Center for Green Chemistry is a comprehensive academic program that provides education with research and service to introduce green chemistry principles into science, the marketplace, and public policy decisions. This joint program involves UC Berkeley’s College of Chemistry, School of Public Health, College of Natural Resources, College of Engineering, School of Law, and Haas School of Business.

The innovative program is being developed for use in industrial settings and educational institutions across the country. The goal is to promote a sustainable, clean energy economy by reducing the use of toxic chemicals that affect society and cause untold damages to human health and the environment.

The Center for Green Chemistry offers a number of partnership projects that allow companies to be involved with the program, faculty, and students. Individual gifts are welcome and all donations are tax-deductible. The program is administered by the Berkeley Institute of the Environment.
