About 250,000 people flooded the streets of Manhattan in September 2019 for the Global Youth Climate Strike. Our Founder, Freeda Johnson’s children participated in that march accompanied by Freeda.
As she stood amidst the sea of young activists, watching her teenage children march for the climate, inspired by the passion and determination of Greta Thunberg, a fire ignited within her. She marched alongside them, not just to ensure their safety, but to witness the immense power of the youth and their unwavering commitment to save our planet. In that moment, she knew she had to be part of the movement, making her own contribution towards a sustainable future.
Her journey began with introspection, pondering on how she could align her legacy with the aspirations of the next generation. Her parents, Lilly and JR Johnson, had built a thriving lifestyle manufacturing business in printing and packaging. They had entrusted her with the responsibility of carrying the legacy forward, but she saw an opportunity to do more.
Driven by the urgency to create a positive impact, she decided to pivot the manufacturing focus entirely towards sustainability. The vision was clear – to embrace eco-friendly materials, sustainable inks, and establish a seamless supply chain that could cater to US consumers and businesses alike. Thus, the idea of “FreedaPrint” was born.
The name itself embodies the essence of our mission – to provide freedom to print, pack, and contribute to a healthier planet. FreedaPrint became more than just a business; it was a commitment to sustainability, a connection between generations, and a platform to support small business owners in their journey towards eco-consciousness.
Our journey was not without its challenges. Turning the tide towards sustainable practices required significant effort and dedication. We meticulously researched and sourced the best eco-friendly materials, exploring innovative solutions to reduce our carbon footprint.
