Value Standards

Items made, sold, and shipped within the U.S. save an enormous amount of emissions over products travelling the world before they reach you.
We aim to choose products that are made to last many years and are also recyclable so that they can be repurposed at the end of their usefulness. 
Wherever possible, we source products that are made from renewable, sustainably grown and harvested materials. We also seek out solar-powered products, reducing the unseen costs of non-renewables.
The products we select that are made outside the U.S. are curated from companies that prioritize ethical work conditions, fair wage, and child protection.

KAZI is the gold standard for sustainable practices and social innovation. KAZI is NEST certified. Here's a summary of their values: 

Worker rights and wellbeing
Global artisan work is notoriously unregulated, underserved, and unprotected. Nest’s mission is to make production more sustainable and socially responsible, creating safe and empowering employment for all workers.

Child advocacy and protection
Children under lawful age of employment should never participate in company production.
Fair compensation and benefitsAll artisans are paid a living wage in a timely manner, and it must be at or above the statutory minimum wage for all production. There should be a system of incentives to promote meeting quality, and all quality standards must be standardized and clearly communicated. Every artisan has access to benefits.

Health and safety
There must be a clean and safe working environment, along with a proactive approach for caring for the physical and mental health—as well as safety—of workers. All workers must be educated on the importance of safety and trained properly, especially for machinery and chemical use as well as sanitation and emergency procedures.

Environmental care
Practice energy conservation wherever possible to lower environmental impact, increase efficiency, and reduce waste. The production process must include responsible solid waste disposal, wastewater remediation, and the proper handling of chemicals.
