  • Products where materials used are grown or produced with a significantly reduced environmental impact. 
  • Products made in the USA with a reduced carbon footprint. 
  • Products that are made with regenerated or recycled or upcycled materials. 
  • Products that are awarded global ratings for their eco-friendly design including FSC-Certifications, GreenGuard Gold Certification, B Corp Certification, and more.

Certified B-Corp

A B-Corp, short for Benefit Corporation, is a brand that aims to balance profit with a commitment to social and environmental goals. B-Corps consider the impact of their decisions on stakeholders including employees, communities, and the environment. To become certified as a B-Corp, a company must meet specific social and environmental performance standards set by the non-profit organization B Lab. This certification process verifies a company's commitment to operating in a socially and environmentally responsible manner, and it legally obligates the company's board to consider these factors when making decisions.

Certified Climate Neutral

To become climate neutral, a brand needs to take several factors into consideration and implement strategies to reduce, offset, or mitigate its greenhouse gas emissions. Key factors include: 

  • Measuring and reducing greenhouse emissions through renewable energy sources, energy efficiency, and optimizing transportation & logistics.
  • Offsetting emissions, by investing in renewable energy development, forest conservation, or methane capture.
  • A brand must make a public commitment to achieving carbon neutrality within a specific timeframe. 
  • Brands must continuously produce transparent reporting on emissions data and reduction efforts to display their progress. 
  • Brands frequently assess their emissions, identifying new opportunities for reduction, therefore adapting their strategies to stay aligned with best practices.
