Sustainably Harvested Rubber

Natural rubber is harvested by tapping the Havea tree and collecting the sap. Sustainably harvested rubber comes from forests that are carefully managed to avoid over-tapping, ensuring healthy rubber trees for the future. Some sustainable rubber tree management prohibits clear cutting to plant rubber plantations, and ensures the livelihoods of native peoples and local workers.

GOTS Certified

The Global Organic Textile Standard is an international processing standard for organic fibers that covers everything from processing, packaging, and distributing organic fibers. GOTS certified products are labeled organic if they contain 95% or more certified organic fibers, and are labeled as “made with organic” if they contain at least 70% organic fibers. GOTS assures that textiles are produced with socially responsible labor and environmentally conscious manufacturing. Certified textiles must follow guidelines on chemical use, energy and water consumption, safety and living standards for employees, waste produced throughout the manufacture process, and more.

Organic Cotton

Organic cotton production uses zero chemical pesticides and fertilizers, promoting a healthier use of land and decreasing harmful agricultural runoff. By steering clear of toxic chemicals, workers experience less exposure to hazardous conditions, promoting social responsibility as well as environmental stewardship. Plus, farming methods for organic cotton have been shown to use up to 20% less water than nonorganic production methods. Choosing organic cotton eliminates the use of insecticides and other harmful chemicals, promotes efficient resource use, and results in a safer products and a cleaner planet!

They're meant to be a long-term solution, but if one goes missing, you can rest easier knowing it's 100% plastic free and biodegradable!

    New concept for me

    Honestly I never thought of the waist my hair ties made?! First time I used I loved, they worked great securing my medium long hair up in a messy bun. After a few uses they do stretch out quite a bit so instead of two times around it’s three.

    I’ve only used them a couple times so far but they worked great. I have straight, medium thick hair and it holds my hair well. They also fit nicely on my wrist and don’t cut off blood circulation like regular hair ties. I can’t wait to use up the rest of my other hair ties and completely switch to using these.

    I like these hair ties, but I really want to love them. I have straight, thin-ish hair that’s pretty slippery. If I wrap them twice around my ponytail, they don’t stay in. If I wrap them three times, they hold my hair but start to get stretched out. So far I haven’t really been able to get them to work with a bun, because they won’t stretch quite far enough for the third wrap on that thickness of hair. They seem strong enough not to break easily though.

    I honestly just threw these in my cart because I knew inevitably at some point in life I would need new ones, and I could put these in the drawer until that day. When they arrived I pulled one out and was SO SURPRISED at how stretchy but STRONG they feel!! I thought without elastic that these wouldn’t hold my hair up, but it’s the complete opposite! My goodie hair ties normally start to get “loose” throughout the day and I’ll have to re-do my ponytail or bun multiple times throughout the day. NOT WITH THESE! also if you do wear hair ties around your wrist, these are amazing!!! They don’t leave rings of cut off circulation as a reminder that you had your hair tie there. You don’t even notice it! I honestly didn’t know I could even like a hair tie so much, and I’m so surprised by my reaction and how much I truly love these! MUST BUY!

    I absolutely love these hair ties. If you have stick hair, I would recommend them even more. When you take your hair tie out, this hair tight doesn’t pull your hair whatsoever. The price is a little steep, but can keep tabs on your hair ties it is worth every single penny. Especially because they will never hurt our environment or last in a landfill for a lifetime
