As a sustainable company, transparency in our supply chain is everything.
We believe consumers should ask questions about where their products come from, so that they can make educated decisions about their purchases.
What does, "Made In Canada" actually mean? Where did the ingredients come from? Is being made in North America automatically more ethical than being made in Asia?
Questions like these is why we have meticulously researched our supply chain, right down to the last detail.
When we began our search for additional products to add to our line, we wanted 'Made In Canada' only (obviously)! But the more we researched, the more we learned that purchasing products from a Canadian company simply meant we were likely purchasing international products from a Canadian middle-man.
Did you know that to qualify as "Made In Canada," only the final parts of the manufacturing process, or 51% of the manufacturing cost has to occur in our country? The downside here was the inability for us to verify the middle-man's supply chain, in addition to passing along much higher prices to you.
So we went directly to the source.
We have weighed many factors where it comes to sourcing our products: like choosing materials with verifiable, third-party environmental certifications, knowing exactly who has worked on our products, verifying the conditions of the workplace with independent audits, cutting out unnecessary middle-men to reduce carbon footprint, quality, and cost.
