We personally test and use all of our products before making them available for sale. If you have any questions about our products or how best to use them, please contact us.
Where are they made?
Our reusable bags are designed in California, manufactured in India of cotton grown there and packaged & shipped from California. They are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified.
Our silicone kitchen tools are made of platinum grade silicone in Italy by Silikomart, a premier European supplier of silicone baking molds and accessories. They are carefully tested and fully FDA and CE compliant, and packaged & shipped from California.
WHAT IS "GOTS" Certified?
All of our organic cotton products are certified according to Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS). This standard stipulates requirements throughout the entire supply chain for ecology, labor conditions and social responsibility. The supply chain includes growing, harvesting, spinning the yarn, weaving/knitting the fabric, and sewing the bags to create a finished product.
What does it mean to be green?
Being green is not a binary choice like yes/no, it's more complex than that. There's a broad range of ways to make a difference and some easy things can have a big effect. That's where we like to focus, being the "most" green in a feasible way.
Do you Walk the Talk?
We try our best to minimize the negative environmental effects of getting our products to you (as much as possible):
- Shipping from manufacturing via sea, the mode of transportation with the lowest carbon emissions
- Reusing shipping boxes
- No retail packaging - we pull from bulk and custom pack every order to minimize waste
- Using recycled paper and cardboard products for shipping to customers
- Using recycled printer paper for packing lists and business materials
- Recycling everything that can't be reused
