Founder, Sarit Marcus, created Minted Space to provide individuals a platform to access sustainable products, designs and solutions.
Sarit combined her depth of experience in environmental, health and philanthropic advocacy with her passion for interior design to realize her vision for Minted Space – a one-of-a-kind sustainable and ethical home furnishings online store.
Through Minted Space's award-winning Eco Guide, customers can identify the sustainability and ethical levels for every product in the store. Minted Space also provides sustainable design consulting.
Sarit’s vision for Minted Space grew out of a void she saw in the sustainability community – namely the lack of options for easy access to sustainable home living products and eco design consulting.
Sarit graduated with a BA in English from the University of Florida, and holds a Master of Public Policy degree with a concentration in environmental programs and policies from the University of Southern California. Sarit is certified by the U.S. Green Building Council as a LEED Green Associate in Interior Design and Construction. Sarit is also a certified Green Accredited Professional by the Sustainable Furnishings Council.
Her diverse career in nonprofit work has included multi-sector project management and research for an international nonprofit healthcare foundation to spearheading a community awareness campaign and securing new facility funding for a women’s homeless shelter.
In the private sector, Sarit worked at a boutique consulting firm specializing in business development, government relations, corporate social responsibility and environmental policy. There, she managed portfolios for a diverse client base that included global philanthropists, elected politicians, C-level executives, and celebrities. As the head of the firm’s environmental department, Sarit oversaw various largescale environmental projects including green-build retrofits, electric vehicle manufacturing and water-saving technologies.
Over her career, Sarit has consulted for leaders of corporate and nonprofit organizations on sustainability, corporate social responsibility (CSR), environmental policies, business development, strategic communications for businesses and individuals, and organizational management.
Currently residing in Tampa, Florida, Sarit previously lived and worked in New York City, Los Angeles, San Diego and Washington D.C.
