Bonnie Dahan founded VivaTerra after realizing that most ecofriendly home furnishing options were bland and poorly designed. She set out to prove that elegance and ecology could co-exist.
Bonnie Trust Dahan created VivaTerra, an online and catalog collection of stylish, ecofriendly home furnishings, in 2004. Throughout her career as an executive with Smith & Hawken and Banana Republic, the author of several healthy living books and the creator of greeting cards, herbal teas and skin care products, Dahan realized that conscientious shoppers often had to sacrifice their sense of style to make earth-friendly purchases. So, she decided to prove that elegance and ecology could co-exist.
Dahan and the VivaTerra collection garnered a nationwide following, landing the cover of Real Simple magazine and Time Magazine's Design and Style issue. VivaTerra has also been featured in the New York Times, Oprah's "O" magazine, Elle Décor, Metropolitan Home, People, and on Good Morning America and the Today Show.
VivaTerra was recently sold, and Dahan has established a consulting practice focused on innovative brand and product development.
