We're anti-leather, pro-cruelty free. We love our furry friends, but did you know that the process of readying leather for the fashion industry is incredibly harmful to our environment?
According to the Higg Materials Sustainability Index, tanning is the most toxic phase in leather processing, with 90 per cent of production using chromium tanning. Hides are doused in drums of water, chromium salts and tanning liquor to stop them from decomposing. It produces a slush of chemicals and gases, including carcinogenic chromium (IV), all of which are toxic to our environment.
OUR PACKAGING: Completely COmpostable
From the beginning and forevermore, we've partnered with the Eco Packaging Alliance to ensure that all of our packaging can be composted both at home and commercially. Our compostable mailers are made from a combination of PBAT, a bio based polymer which is compostable, and PLA which is made up of plant materials such as regular ﬁeld corn and wheat straw.
Our use of PLA makes up barely 0.05% of the annual global corn crop, making it an incredibly low-impact resource. After degradation, our bags don't leave harmful residues behind.
