Born in and inspired by the rugged Rocky Mountains, but enjoyed throughout the world, Planetary Design products are the perfect fusion of design and durability. The patented AirScape kitchen canister is a revolutionary approach to truly storing and preserving food and perishables. The success of Planetary Design revolves around cutting-edge innovation and design, a commitment to using quality materials, While all Planetary Design products are designed and distributed here in the U.S., they are manufactured abroad. This is not just because of cost, but also due to U.S. manufacturers not having the machinery and volume capability to make these kinds of stainless steel products. Nonetheless, they have very close relationships with manufacturing partners and are in frequent contact with them. Independent audits and inspections are conducted routinely, ensuring both safe and fair working conditions as well as high quality products. Besides the numerous jobs created in the local economy, they often have additional quality checks and/or re-packaging performed by a non-profit in our community dedicated to providing employment opportunities to individuals with disabilities. In a nutshell, they take every measure to provide quality products while remaining loyal to our local and national economy, and the environment as a whole.
