It’s important to us that the environment and our workers are taken into consideration first throughout the entire manufacturing process. As such, we have put together a code of conduct to enforce this. See our Supplier Code of Conduct.
To be completely transparent, the challenge is that sustainability issues are complicated. It’s not always clear what the right thing to do is, and far too often we find companies greenwashing without making any real progress, or making matters worse. We feel that our community deserves better from us. So we’re doing our best to really understand the issues and share the facts with you, as transparently as possible, as we continue on this journey.
Our commitment is that we won’t do anything we don’t believe in
Manufacturing & Ethics
Currently, all our manufacturers are located in PRC. We’ve ensured that all the workers in our manufacturer’s facilities are paid fair American living wages, have safe working conditions and treated ethically according to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
All our orders are now shipped in compostable mailers made from plants
Compostable Mailer composts in 6 months (180 days) versus regular plastic mailers which could take about 500 years.
For every order, we are taking steps to neutralize the environmental impact of shipping it to your door.
Through Shopify, we've partnered with Pachama, a best-in-class organization for offset protocols and standards. Our contributions are currently funding the Jarí Para Forest Project in the Amazon Rainforest

Roadmap for sustainability
We agree that there's always room to improve and we have only started our work on the sustainability front. Here are a few things that are on our roadmap.
- Introduce recycled fabrics into our colleciton
- Partner up with environmental organizations/charities like One Tree Planted to give back to the environment and create a healthier climate
