Earth Day 2023
In celebration of Earth Day, we wanted to share a few things we’re doing today and throughout the year to honor our beautiful planet.
This year we're donating to two local organizations Tree People and LA Compost.
We're currently working on a project to repurpose damaged items and scrap fabric into quilts for a future collection. As a company, we want to minimize our carbon footprint as much as possible, so reusing old pieces to keep our new production to a minimum is a priority.
Our team will be taking paid work days to volunteer with two local environmentally focused organizations Audubon Society for Habitat Restoration and Friends of the LA River for LA River Clean up.
Once you break it down to a local level, it feels more accessible and achievable. Sometimes the hardest part can be figuring out where to start, so we wanted to share some resources to help get you started.
LA Compost “empowers communities by creating spaces for local compost access.” With easy drop off locations and volunteering opportunities, you can learn how your food scraps turn into nutrient rich compost.
Volunteering at the Audubon Society at Deb’s Park helps “to maintain habitat restoration sites through, invasive species removal, watering, and more. This is a great opportunity to learn about local wildlife and CA native plants!”
Other local organizations like FOLAR (Friends of the LA River) put on community events that focus on cleaning up and restoring native habitats on the LA River.
