As a business that focuses on kind earth, vintage and kind human goods, we acknowledge that we need to be socially responsible as a business. So, we are happy to announce that as of 02/01/2021 we will be giving back 3% of our sales to fight for social justice. We believe these organizations will enact change, assist the marginalized, and fight against systems of oppression, white supremacy and racism as well as fighting for our planet and animal rights, within our communities and worldwide.
