40% of worldwide textile production uses cotton, but less than one percent of all cotton grown is organic.
We use organic cotton because it does not depend on chemical pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, or genetically engineered ingredients to grow. Organic cotton also creates more biodiversity and helps improve the soil’s health.
Organic farms pull CO out of the atmosphere as much as three times the rate of conventional farming practices and releases less CO into the atmosphere

All of our sustainable packaging comes from Eco Enclose. A conscious e-commerce company that offers packaging supplies made from raw recycled materials.
All their products are manufactured in the USA. The Recycled Poly Mailers are 100% Recyclable and made entirely from recycled plastic and post consumer waste.
Plastic Bottles Are Wack
In the U.S alone billions of plastic bottles are used every year. Only one in 5 are recycled.
Plastics never go away. Instead, they break down into smaller and smaller pieces, which can act as magnets for harmful pollutants. Some of those chemical-laden micro-plastics can work their way up the food chain and into the fish we eat.
We are working on incorporating recycled plastic bottles into some of our garments. So we can keep them out of our oceans, our tap water, and land.
