MEETING HIGH STANDARDS FOR SOCIAL AND ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT
We're on a mission to do better. To create eco-conscious, affordable products that are made ethically and responsibly. As a result, we are pleased to have received the Green Business Certification from Green America. Green America awards Green Business Certification to companies and organizations that meet or exceed their standards for social and environmental responsibility. They certify companies that are "values-based" and committed to using business as a platform for social change. They also require that businesses are environmentally responsible in running their operations as well as sourcing, manufacturing, and marketing their products.
GREEN IS OUR PASSION™
SOCIALLY JUST, ENVIRONMENTALLY SUSTAINABLE
Green America’s mission is to harness economic power — the strength of consumers, investors, businesses, and the marketplace — to create a socially just and environmentally sustainable society. They work toward a world where all people have enough, where all communities are healthy and safe, and where our planet is preserved for all generations to come. They use the word “green” to mean social and economic justice, community and environmental health. For them, it really is about both people and the planet.
Green America’s work combines four powerful strategies: empowering individuals to make purchasing and investing choices that promote social justice and environmental sustainability; demanding an end to corporate irresponsibility through collective economic action; promoting green and fair trade business principles while building the market for businesses adhering to these principles; building sustainable communities in the U.S. and abroad.
Green America’s Green Business Network® is the first, largest, and most diverse network of socially and environmentally responsible businesses in the country.
OUR GREEN STRATEGY
Our mission is to make quality products with natural and organic materials that are luxurious, healthy, and affordable — and to do so in a sustainable manner. As our business scales and evolves, we endeavor to continually improve how we can live in better balance with each other and our planet in three core areas: environmental, social, and economic sustainability.
Our products are GREENGUARD Gold Certified. We strive to ensure that we consume natural resources at a sustainable rate. We seek resources that are environmentally-friendly and renewable, recyclable, and always consider environmental factors and their impact on human health when sourcing our materials and manufacturing our products. Eliminating pollutants and reducing chemical exposure is of prime importance to us.
We balance the needs of environmental sustainability with running our business at fair and appropriate margins (without which our business couldn’t sustain itself.) We do our best to act responsibly, operate efficiently, be honest, and consider the long-term implications of our actions. We are also a U.S. Green Building Council member. USGBC supports policies and programs that advance greener buildings and communities. Our membership in USGBC helps us to create products — using natural materials — that foster healthy indoor air quality.
We also seek a balance with our planet’s “human resources” — to maintain and promote health, human rights, labor rights, social justice, diversity, integrity, and quality of life. We hope to inspire goodness with goodness. As a member of 1% for the Planet, we donate 1% of all revenues to change-driving nonprofits.
