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!

    I fell in love with these immediately. The quality of these are amazing and I love that they don’t stretch out use after use. I’ve been wanting to try these for such a long time and I’m so glad I finally did. I also love that it’s not tight around my wrist. I appreciate that its plastic free too!

    Nice, Simple Hair Tie

    I love this hair tie. It is simple but does a great job of controlling my hair. It feels great and does not snag or pull out a lot of hairs. When not needed I just put it around my wrist and it looks like a simple bracelet. I love that it is made ethically and can be composted at end of life without harming the earth. It is fun that Koo Shoo has hair ties that generally match hair color – FUN!!
