Sustainability is the cornerstone of our company. From procuring smart materials for production, to choosing local manufacturers to minimize transportation. From automatically offsetting all of our shipping emissions, to using 100% recycled cardboard for our boxes. We strive to be a force of good in our business category and, hopefully, even an inspiration to other small businesses.
This is some of what we do to minimize our environmental impact.
We have partnered with EcoCart to offset every single mile of shipping we do. Their algorithm calculates the emissions of manufacturing and shipping each unique order by looking at things like shipping distance, package weight, and product type. All contributions fund certified offset projects worldwide.
Our boxes are made of 100% recycled cardboard, even our wrapping tape is made of recycled matter. Furthermore, our boxes are specially designed for our products, reducing CO2 emission by minimizing volume and weight.
As you probably know by now, our main material is cactus leather which has significant environmental benefits over its animal based counterpart - not to mention that it is cruelty-free - and is even more sustainable than other plant based alternatives.
100% Bamboo fiber
Bamboo fiber is antibacterial, bacteriostatic, hygroscopic, permeable, smooth, soft, and ultraviolet-proof. We use it in some of our products in our lining.
- GREEN AND BIODEGRADABLE
Bamboo fiber is 100% made from bamboo through a high-tech process. As a natural cellulose fiber, it can be completely biodegraded in soil by microorganism and sunshine. The decomposition process doesn’t cause any pollution to the environment.
- NATURAL AND ANTIBACTERIAL
Bamboo fiber has particular and natural functions of anti-bacteria, bacteriostatic, and deodorization. As validated by the Japan Textile Inspection Association, even after fifty times of washing, bamboo fiber fabric still possesses excellent function of anti-bacteria and bacteriostatic.
- BREATHABLE AND COOL
Bamboo fiber boasts advantages of breathability and coolness. According to authoritative testing figures, textiles made from bamboo fibers are 1-2 degrees lower than normal textiles in hot summer.
We use Bamboo Linen (50% Bamboo - 50% Cotton) to make our duster bags- handcrafted as well of course. This material is soft, hypoallergenic, and antibacterial. The perfect material to protect our items.
