See what it can do for you

Sustainability is our business.
Not our buzzword.

For us, sustainability isn’t a box to check — it’s a promise to do no harm as we work with our partners to help their products and industries perform better.* That means minimizing our impact on the planet and on the people who make and use the products. And making sure sustainability goals aren’t priced out of reach. So we carefully consider every piece of our supply chain — from how our farmers water their mulberry plants to how we ship our cocoons.

*To fully understand our environmental impact and continuously improve our supply chain and manufacturing process, we undertook a full ISO-compliant Lifecycle Assessment (LCA).
