We use GOTS certified organic cotton, which tracks the impact of the cotton from every step of the process from the environment to worker safety and worker rights issues.
According to Textile Exchange, an international nonprofit organization committed to a more sustainable textile industry, organic cotton is proven to cause less environmental damage than conventional cotton:
- 46% reduced global warming potential
- 70% less acidification potential
- 26% reduced eutrophication potential (soil erosion)
- 91% reduced blue water consumption
- 62% reduced primary energy demand
In our eye masks we use a responsible, ecological alternative to conventional elastics made from natural rubber and bound in GOTS certified cotton. This plastic free material is biodegradable and recyclable. Bonus- it has a longer lifespan than comparable conventional elastic.

Our producer recycles the water used in the process of creating the textile.
We dye in bundles and recharge dye baths multiple times to reduce the use of water in our dye process. We use the exhausted dye bath to water our plants whenever possible!
All of our textiles are cut to dye by piece minimizing the waste. All scraps are eventually re-purposed or recycled.
We are proud to be manufacturing in California which recently passed the Garment Worker Protection Act, SB 1399 which prohibits piece-rate payment structure. We work with a family owned sewing company in Vista, Ca. Local production of our goods also helps maintain a low carbon footprint.
