Spread Love, Not Chemicals
The fashion industry is dirty and we are here to clean it up. Did you know that there are over 8,000 synthetic chemicals used in clothing manufacturing? Many of these chemicals are known to be carcinogenic, endocrine disrupting and hazardous to our health. MATE is committed to using non-toxic, natural and Organic materials.
Organic Cotton uses 87% less water than conventionally grown cotton and emits 45% less greenhouse gases. Conventional cotton is also notorious for using more pesticides than any other crop in the world. The use of these chemicals has led to the hospitalization of up to 1 million farmworkers every year. That’s some dirty talk we absolutely cannot get behind. By using Organic Cotton, we keep the people we work with and the products we sell safe.
Carbon Footprint, It's a Thing
Our supply chain is v localized. Ten miles to be exact. You can trust that your goodies aren't flying all around the globe racking up a high footprint. They are being cut, sewn, dyed, packaged and shipped from lovely people in Los Angeles.
WTF is Circularity?
We believe that what goes around comes around, literally. We are working hard behind the scenes to offer our MATES the chance to return their goodies after use, so we can recycle them and (poof) turn them into new product. Cool, right?
The Whole Package
Our sustainability efforts don't just stop with our clothes. We use 100% recycled materials for our shipping mailers and boxes. We don't send any extra branded materials along with your order to help eliminate single-use waste. All orders are shipped with recyclable tissue paper, minus a poly bag.
"Our goal is to offer Women everywhere a Clean product that is just as beautiful as it is sustainable. We are proud to be a female founded company that is predominately operated by Women."
-Kayti O'Connell Carr, Founder
