Microfibers are pretty bad for the environment. They usually make their way into waterways from the tumble your clothes take in the washer. While you’re free to do whatever you like with your Day Owl bag, we advise against putting it in the washer. Besides, it doesn’t need it! (See Product Care for how to clean your bag)
25 Bottles are diverted from our First Mile supply chains for each bags. 700 gallons of water are saved, compared to comparably sized cotton bag (~2 tote bags) 1.2 lbs pesticides & fertilizer avoided, compared to those totes.
First, it’s just a great box, isn’t it? We love the Wizard of Oz thing going on between the outside black and white and the inside color..but we digress. You’ll note that save a little tape on the shipping label from the carrier (which we can’t control) there is no plastic in the packaging. That’s on purpose. In terms of what to do with that glorious looking box, put stuff in it! Old ticket stubs, polaroids, whatever. You can make yourself a little hope chest. If that’s not your thing, I’m sure you’ll come up with something. If you don’t, it’s recyclable just please recycle it.
Great question. We started in Haiti after the earthquake there in 2010, just helping people pick up plastic bottles to earn extra cash and turning that material into all sorts of things like shoes, laptops, and even the odd art project. We realized that there were millions of these folks who picked up trash for a living all over the world and despite them being the last line of defense that keeps plastic out of the ocean for the big companies that make it, more often than not, people don't work very hard to help make their lives better. So we became a supply chain company and dedicated ourselves to getting this waste off the ground and putting people to work in good jobs. We still do that work...you can follow @FirstMileImpact.
The problem was, it wasn't going fast enough. It turns out changing an entire industry was harder than we thought! Companies are SLOW to act more like Patagonia and less like (insert any oil company and most apparel brands here), so we started thinking about how we might make great stuff as well as help supply it to other great companies.
Frankly, it took a lot of debates over beers and coffee to get to a place where we felt like introducing more products into the world felt like a good idea. But we ultimately decided that if we expect companies to move more quickly to find solutions to the environmental crisis, then we had to get in the game and start showing people how we thought it should be done. So here we are, and here is what we promise:
- we can ALWAYS get better
- we won't say it unless we can back it up
- even though we're not perfect, we're always going to work hard to be perfect
- If you ever want to come and see for yourself, you are invited to any part of the supply chain. We understand that most people won't or can't which is why we'll work hard to bring their stories to you, but the offer stands anyway.
All we ask of you in return. Don't hate online in a glorious fit of righteous rage. There's ENOUGH of that out there these days. Just reach out to us. I promise you we are all ears ( Do owls have ears?)
