Through his work in bike, surf and outfitter shops, Davidson became seriously concerned about the waste associated with the adventure sports he loves because of the negative impacts on the great outdoors.

He went on to provide design work for a variety of companies including Swim Ways, Kelsyus, Case Logic, and Aerogrow International. Throughout these valuable experiences, Davidson learned how essential the development of a new, sustainable model for the design and manufacture of consumer products is to the environment. With a clear vision for the future of ecological business practices and strong motivation to aid the earth, Davison became an ecoentrepreneur and founded Ecologic Designs, Inc. to combat the growing crisis with a solution.
