The Seeker Sustainability Project is our internal commitment as a company to focus on sustainable growth. We're very excited to share some of the details below, as they make up our first step (or stage 1) of the project. We aren’t perfect, but the goal of this project is to make continual progress towards a more sustainable future.
Stage 1 - Holiday 2020
All of our holiday clothing is made from 100% organic cotton, certified by the Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS) - the world's leading standard for organic textiles. Using certified organic cotton means we use less water, less energy, and zero harmful chemicals or pesticides.
More specifically, companies that use organic cotton versus regular cotton consume 91% less water, 62% less energy, and their production results in 70% less acidification to the land and water (on average).
Organic cotton saves roughly 600 gallons of water per item. That’s the amount of water one person should drink over a 2-3 year period.
Our garments are colored with 100% nontoxic dyes. This ensures that our clothing is not treated with bleach, formaldehyde, or any other harmful substance. In addition, our dye house uses a water treatment facility to process any left over water.
Our packaging is made from a mixture of plant-based and biodegradable material. Roughly 3-6 months of composting will lead to decomposition.
Made to Order
Once our clothing arrives at our warehouse, screen printing and embroidery is only added when an item is ordered. This eliminates any overproduction that would lead to clothing going to waste.
