we are constantly working to reduce our footprint. we are transitioning the collection towards no first-use plastic (for 2021 85% of the headwear lineup uses at least 30% recycled polyester content, with 65% using only recycled polyester content). our tees are made of certified organic cotton and recycled polyester. our online fulfilment boxes are made of FSC certified post-consumer waste, and in-box packaging is done with FSC certified and soy-based ink tissue paper and stickers. we have re-introduced RePack as a shipping alternative in USA and Canada – where shipping boxes are re-used up to 20 times. the above are some examples, but this is an area where we are always trying to make improvements, and we want team members who share our view that this as important, and will factor it in their decision-making process.
