Sustainability Story

Beyond being Climate Neutral Certified we participate with 1% for the Planet, Eden Reforestation and Ecologi. Our goal is to make as much of our business as sustainable as possible while making sure we financially contribute to offset the aspects we cannot. At every decision we strive to choose the most eco-friendly and sustainable option from the fabric we choose, factories we use, limited production runs (with made to order wholesale quantities) and all items are made in the USA allowing greater visibility and transparency as well.

In Progress Reductions

01

75

What We’re Reducing

We plan to reduce overall emissions generated by shipping of our manufacturing components by resourcing those items from producers/suppliers closer to our manufacturing location. We currently use as many local vendors as possible but we will extend this.

How We'll Reduce It

We are actively seeking sourcing leads throughout the US, including outreach to textile manufacturers, textile industry groups and trims.

02

60

What We’re Reducing

We plan to expand our work toward limiting waste generated through unsold product by instituting strict produce to order guidelines with our retail partners, as well as limiting over-production of product sold through our ecommerce platform.

How We'll Reduce It

Our sales team will continue to stress that retailer orders cannot be increased until the reorder window opens and that our production will match each order. While this will limit available inventory, it will also eliminate the waste of overproduction.
