About Climate Neutral Certification

Wherever you see the Climate Neutral Certified label, it means the company is accountable for its greenhouse gas emissions. To earn the label, a company must annually measure cradle-to-customer emissions, implement specific action plans to reduce emissions, and invest in high quality, verified carbon credits.

The certification requirements are detailed in the rigorous, peer-reviewed Climate Neutral Certified Standard. Each company’s application is reviewed for compliance by Change Climate’s certification team.

Description

Projects that support wind energy generation in order to reduce dependence on fossil fuels.

Debuted in January 2021, we are a New York City- based design collective with a new vision for elevated accessories. Progress is our promise. Releasing one product at a time, we're devoted to conscientious craftsmanship, responsible materials, and design without compromise. Instead of following the standard seasonal schedule, we release one design at a time so we can conduct myriad rounds of prototyping and market testing, ensuring that our end results deliver on both practicality and superior aesthetics. Integral to our approach is transparent construction: all our styles are engineered without the unnecessary plastic fillers that are typically inserted into handbag linings. This approach relies purely on the quality and integrated structure of our raw materials, pushing us to maintain rigorous standards of craftsmanship to achieve unparalleled functionality. Collaboration is what makes our innovative structures possible. By inviting our production partners to engage with us in ideation through production, we are able to track and monitor the social, environmental, and human impact of each bag. Since the beginning of 2021, all our bags have been produced in a carbon-neutral, solar-powered facility in Italy renowned for Venetian craftsmanship. It all starts with the raw materials. For every project, we spend months searching the globe for best-in-class leather and textile partners who are as committed to sustainable, low-impact processes as we are. Our leathers are entirely sourced from food byproducts and 100 percent traceable. They are produced in a scope-C gold-standard tannery certified by the Leather Working Group, of which there are only 13 worldwide. This certification guarantees that from rawhide to finished leather, every step of the process is held to the highest standards of environmental impact. Hemp is one of the strongest natural fibers (four times stronger than cotton), and is ideal for constructing durable accessories to last a lifetime. Our hemp is cultivated with minimal water and chemical intervention, naturally dyed for waterproofing, and grown and finished in a single factory. Our decades-old hemp producer was one of the first in the industry to succeed in organic cultivation and become certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard. And Beyond. We take the details seriously, evaluating the environmental impact of every single ingredient (even our zipper tapes are recycled). We incentivize customers to opt for minimal packaging with a discount, but if they request more extensive packaging, we have created an FSC-certified greyboard box that can be reused for years to come. We source deadstock fabric from our hemp supplier to make our dust cloth, which can also be repurposed as a bandana or table cloth.
