Amid the 2020 pandemic, many of us became isolated and trapped, evoking a desire to escape! For some , began an even greater disconnect from the world around us and the outdoor exploration we are accustomed to. We saw this as an opportunity to heal our connection with ourselves and the nature that surrounds us through high-quality, sustainable jigsaw puzzles with a purpose.
Meet our founder—Deslyn Adams (she/her)
Deslyn is a retired pharmacist who swapped a life of metrics and calculations for activism and creativity. After receiving a breast cancer diagnosis in 2019, Deslyn began confronting the idea of the message and legacy she wanted to leave behind, and thus, Koality Kontent was born in Michigan in 2020. As an avid nature explorer herself with bonds inside the puzzle community, Deslyn saw an opportunity to not only connect with puzzle fanatics but also educate them on their connection to nature and the importance of protecting it. Since then, she prides herself on engaging with other puzzlers and takes a passionate stance on the positive effects puzzling can have on both the brain and the environment.
We believe that we all have a personal connection to nature, and thus, a responsibility to protect it! That’s why we’ve created a high-quality collection of puzzles that provide mental stimulation and environmental action. With sustainable materials, eco-activist artists, and a percentage of sales being donated to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) we hope to spread awareness of the threats facing nature today and inspire others to act for tomorrow. Saving the world may seem like a daunting task, and that’s because it is! However, we believe that anyone can change the world through connecting to their environment, one puzzle piece at a time!
