We work constantly in trying to find suppliers from which we can source our materials that are as close to home as possible. Most of our suppliers come from Europe. When it comes to our high-quality yellow-orange lining made from recycled PET bottles as well as our recycled cotton canvas dust bags, they are sourced from two skilled suppliers in China, simply because that is where the expertise for producing these types of materials is located. Most of the time the means of transport from our suppliers in China is by train, but sometimes we must ship by air.
To minimize our carbon footprint, we offset carbon emissions for every shipment we dispatch to our customers. For every item sold, we plant a tree, by supporting the non-profit organization One Tree Planted that is focused on reforestation. We also support the charity The Ocean Cleanup that is doing a fantastic job in improving marine life by cleaning up the five largest ocean garbage patches around the globe.
