In a world of greenwashing and misinterpretation, we wanted to verify our sustainability claims with a third-party verification to help us evidence that what we say is what we do. By being as transparent as we can, we hope to build meaningful, trusting relationships with our community. Our partnership with Renoon App allows us to share evidence-based credentials for each product.
You can find product transparency labels on the bottom of each product page.
