We want to make the world a better place.
We really do. And although we're small, we have big ideas. and we're committed. We work hard to support environmental sustainability in our product choices and offerings and to support social equity through our employment and manufacturing practices. While we'll never sacrifice product quality, we choose sustainable products whenever possible.
Our environmental commitment is seen in our packaging, fabrics, and other supplies. For example, our hang tags are printed on 100% post-consumer paper using soy-based ink by a printing company that runs a certified carbon-neutral business. We use very minimal protective packaging only when absolutely necessary, and we have a substantial organic collection. We make organics available to our customers because people love them-- but also because we want to support the organic fabric producers as much as possible. We plan to keep expanding our organic line. We also donate to local environmental organizations on an annual basis.
Our social commitment can be seen in our manufacturing practices, and in the organizations we support each year with cash and product donations. Our sewists are all work-at-home women and they're paid a fair, living wage for the work they do. And this was part of our company policy before doing so was "cool." Yes, our products might cost a little more than something sewn overseas, but our quality can't be beat and when you choose UB2 you know that your money is supporting products that are handmade in the usa. Be proud to keep your cash here in the US!
We WILL make the world a better place.
