All Plant Faced orders are packaged in recyclable kraft paper mailer boxes, sealed with vegan-friendly paper tape, wrapped in acid-free tissue paper, with some stickers, and a small paper zine. We're currently moving some of our packaging to some pretty sweet, fun looking eco-friendly 100% compostable and biodegradable paper mailers, printed with soy-based inks. We specifically choose to opt out of the individual poly bags that most clothing brands do to wrap their garments, and worked hard to find suppliers willing to work with these requirements.
All of our clothing is sustainably made in small batches to ensure no excess stock ever goes to landfill. We endeavour to create high quality, beautifully made garments designed to last the test of time. We do ask our customers to take care of their Plant Faced pieces to help us with this.
By caring for garments the right way and looking after your pieces, you can double the life of a garment and reduce the climate impact in half. There is always room for improvement and we are constantly working to explore further ways into which we can make our brand more sustainable while continuing to provide garments at a price that our customers can continue to support and enjoy.
You'll also notice that about 90% of our products are made from more sustainable fabric options like organic or recycled materials. Read more on why Organic Cotton is better for both you and the environment here, and more on Recycled PET here. We use vegan eco water-based inks in all our prints (see above)!
Our garments are additionally GOTS certified. The Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria, backed up by independent certification of the entire textile supply chain. GOTS certification covers the whole textile process include fair labour practices (no child labour!) and the assurance that there is no known toxic substances used as part of the manufacturing process and therefore safe for humans.
Lastly, we plant trees, lots of them! For every single item we sell, helping to offset our carbon footprint and pay mother nature back for the products she allows us to make. No matter what you buy, we’ll plant a tree on your behalf for every item you buy. Special thanks to our tree planting partner, Eden Reforestation, read more here on our Buy 1 Plant 1 program here.
