Our Commitment to the Environment.
You may have seen the words we use on the packaging:
Be responsible. Let it live forever… We are all responsible for the environment. Do your part to keep the water clean, the air pure and the forests green. Reduce, reuse & recycle when you should, not just when it is convenient.
These are more than just words. Since 1999, we have been doing our part to reduce the amount of waste we create in our course of doing business. We attempt to use the most recycled product available. We think it’s important to work closely with our suppliers to be sure they’re doing their parts, as well.
Every day, we work to make a difference, and we strive to produce socially-conscious products that we—and you—can be proud of.
Our products may be designed in Bellingham, Washington, but we source materials and products from all over the world. That means we must be vigilant to only work with suppliers and vendors who adhere to labor codes and supply chains that are ethical and sustainable.
We audit our suppliers to ensure they prohibit illegal child labor, compulsory prison or slave labor and physical abuse of workers. We expect our suppliers to comply, at a minimum, with the applicable labor and environmental laws and regulations of the country where the merchandise is produced—and we encourage them to exceed those standards.
