Why We Like Them

House of Marley knows that materials matter.

That’s why each product is crafted from a blend of mindfully sourced materials, including naturally renewable bamboo, FSC certified wood, as well as recycled aluminum, plastic, and fabrics. By making thoughtful decisions about what materials go into their products, they believe their products are able to provide more meaningful experiences that can ultimately result in positive change.

You’ll often see bamboo in their audio products, thanks to bamboo’s higher compressive strength than wood, and a tensile strength that rivals steel. This sustainable wood alternative is just one of House of Marley’s high-quality, low-impact materials that make their functional, yet aesthetically pleasing products. While materials like bamboo are becoming more widely used, House of Marley continues to push the boundaries of traditional production with materials like their Regrind Silicone. This specially created material is made by reclaiming and upcycling post-process and post-consumer waste, transforming it into a moldable, durable silicone-esque material. From this they can create protective covers, headband pads, ear cushions, and watch bands, all from sustainable post-consumer Regrind Silicone.

While House of Marley always strives to find innovative materials that benefit the planet, some mixed material products require a touch of wood. Because of this, they have aligned themselves with the Forest Stewardship Council, a third party body that ensures the wood that goes into House of Marley products was generated naturally, and will be regrown. Certified FSC forests have a reputation for healthy regenerative forestry, positive social engagement, and the prevention of illegal forestation.

It’s through these initiatives that House of Marley creates major change; to date planting 25,000 trees! For each House of Marley product purchased, whether that be one of their stylish turntables, or a wireless set of headphones, a percentage of each sale goes towards supporting reforestation initiatives. It’s about more than just planting trees, as reforestry is connected to cleaner air, water filtration, increased bio-diversity, carbon sequestering, and safe jobs for over 1.6 billion people today.

They’re driven to enhance lives through great product experiences, as well as donating a portion of product sales to support global reforestation through their foundation Project Marley. For every House of Marley product purchased, they plant a tree through!

The company that makes this product has a program to plant trees in proportion with their sales. Planting trees helps to combat deforestation, reduce atmospheric CO2, and preserve the health of ecosystems across the globe.

Plant Based Resins are used as an alternative to fully-synthetic plastics. Instead of using Petroleum as the main base ingredient to form plastic, some companies have started replacing a portion of the ingredients with plant and vegetable extracts. This lowers the amount of resources extracted to create purely synthetic products, and often provides a use for agricultural byproducts such as corn or flax. Some plant based resins are made from 100% plant materials, and can be composted in industrial facilities. EarthHero recommends checking with your local compost facility to determine which items are safe to compost.

As a member of the grass family, bamboo is one of the fastest growing plants on earth. It requires no irrigation, pesticides or fertilizers to grow, and can be harvested within 3-5 years, as compared to approximately 30+ years for traditional hardwoods. Bamboo is extremely adaptable and produces more oxygen per acre than large tree species, while using a fraction of the water to grow. Its durable and lightweight qualities make bamboo a great alternative for hard wood products!

Products with the Forest Stewardship Council certification are made from or with wood sourced from FSC managed forests. FSC standards ensure the respect and wellbeing of indigenous peoples, forest workers, and local communities. Harvesting in certified forests maintains the ecological functions of each habitat. FSC prohibits the use of pesticides, GMOs, and the conversion of forests to plantations. As a third party, not-for-profit agency, FSC provides nonbiased audits of forest management.

Recycled PET utilizes salvaged post-industrial PET scraps and post-consumer products such as water bottles and other plastic containers. These plastics are dried, crushed, and spun into yarn in order to create recycled PET fabric, or polyester. By providing a use for recycled plastics, companies encourage recycling programs worldwide, while adding new value to discarded items. Currently, over half of virgin PET production goes towards making textiles, so by utilizing recycled PET, post-consumer materials are both diverting waste while taking the place of raw materials. This helps to reduce the demand for the extraction of oil, as well as energy used to produce new synthetic fibers.

Upcycled cotton salvages pre- and post-consumer fabric scraps and reuses them in new designs. Fabric scraps are cleaned, sorted, and often unwoven before being used again in new items. Upcycling cotton prevents the need for new textiles to be produced, and extends the life cycle of existing materials, rather than sending them to the landfill. Plus, it maintains the original structure of the cotton yarn, eliminating extra energy that would otherwise be needed to break down and respin the fibers into new yarn.
