HOW CAN A CARRY COMPANY HELP THE WORLD TO BE A BETTER PLACE?

Through our products

Through the way we do business

We want to improve the way people carry their everyday essentials. When you have the right things on hand, it becomes easier to roam, adapt and experience everything the world has to offer. And, for most folk, the more experiences we have the more awareness we have of the world and our impact on it.

We want to help discover and inspire better business practices – enabling a healthier relationship with our work, each other, the planet and those we share it with. Our better ways mantra is a lens for continually improving how we do what we do.

Through our environmental practices

Our environmental goals have been inspired by Cradle-to-Cradle principles. These seem to be the smartest and most realistic principles to follow. They've led us to five goals that guide our day-to-day decision making:

1MAKE PRODUCTS THAT ARE USED AND LOVED FOR AS LONG AS POSSIBLE

Our products are hard-wearing with strong stitching, tightly-woven lining, long-lasting zips, quality components and a 3 year warranty. The designs we develop are classic, and their character inspires owners to hold onto them for years..

2ELIMINATE SERIOUS TOXINS THROUGHOUT OUR PRODUCT AND PACKAGING

This includes: environmental toxins (bleaches, pesticides and heavy metals); and human toxins (carcinogens used in poorly controlled leather tanning and chrome plating, or high allergy materials like nickel used in plating).

3TO SEEK BIODEGRADABLE OR RECYCLABLE MATERIALS AND PRODUCTS WHERE THEY MAKE SENSE

We work with biodegradable and recyclable materials where they don't compromise our first two environmental goals. We choose materials that recycle well, like the polyester we use in linings and stitching, and we design with end-of-life in mind.
