OUR PLAN TO HELP #SAVETHEWORLD
Today, it's more important than ever to be "sustainable," but what does sustainability even mean? To us, eco-consciousness is at the forefront of how our business is run, which is why we choose products and suppliers with the future of our planet in mind. From our threads down to our packaging, we have chosen to purchase from the companies doing the most they can to help us #savetheworld.
Read more on our suppliers and sustainability practices below.
If we want to thrive, we need to do our part in making as small of a biological imprint on the Earth as we can.
Here at Crave, we make it our mission to always choose sustainability.
-all of our fabrics are sourced secondhand and repurposed into high quality 1/1 items
-we only print using water based vegan inks
-all items are handmade by me, Nic, here in my Los Angeles studio ensuring ethical business practices and treatment
1 / 1
Fast fashion is a big player in the overall health of our environment and we want to do anything we can to combat the effect of the industry. Taking this into account, all of our 1/1 custom items are made from high-quality thrifted fabrics and repurposed into one of a kind wearable art that you can feel responsible wearing.
With 50% of cotton products thrown out after the first month and 90% made out of low quality material, we wanted to not only change the statistics but change your experience.
We want to be able to be held accountable for not only our quality, but our practices. We only use secondhand and ethically hand - sourced fabrics to print on. All our fabrics are hand sourced, by Nic, and secondhand. No fabric scrap ever gets thrown out, we use them to fill poufs/cushions in our studio and to make patches, straps, and other accessories for our 1/1 designs.
Every day, 8 million pieces of plastic find their way into our oceans; just imagine how many are sitting in landfills and damaging ecosystems across the globe. Single use plastics are a huge pollutant in our society.
When we were searching for eco-friendly packaging, we came across The Better Packaging Co. that makes completely compostable packing supplies making it able for us reduce our carbon footprint and be the best dirtbags around.
We also use custom made tissue paper from NoIssue that is made fully from recycled materials.
