Sustainability is an issue of utmost importance in the fashion world, and we are beyond saddened by how our industry has contributed to issues for the earth. The information circulating about sustainable fashion is overwhelming, and we know how difficult it can be to be a conscious and savvy shopper. At Harper & Tucker, it is our goal to contribute the least harm possible in all that we do, to help drive positive change, and to always be transparent. If you have any questions about our sustainability mission, our practices, or one of our brand's practices, please contact us!
Harper & Tucker prioritizes sustainable and ethical production by sourcing collections by brands that share these values.
We fully understand that brands do not become sustainable overnight, and progress is a better goal than perfection. We have chosen to partner with brands that are meaningfully working toward sustainability, committing to high standards for working conditions, giving back where they can, and doing more good than harm in their clothing's production.
Some of the things we look for:
Responsibly sourced natural fiber fabrics
Recycled and dead stock fabrics
Plant-based, non-toxic dyes
Vegan materials instead of animal derived products
Production in the USA
Partnerships with factories with certifications for strict codes for treatment of workers
Recycled or compostable packaging
Small batch production
Timeless designs and quality over fast fashion trends
We strive to reduce our waste as much as possible, eliminate plastics, and use only materials that are recycled and recyclable or biodegradable and compostable. Adhesives and dyes used in printing must plant based and non-toxic.
Our tissue paper is dye free, biodegradable, recycled, and recyclable.
Our mailers are 100% biodegradable and compostable.
Our tape is recyclable, renewable, and biodegradable - including the adhesive and backing!
Our notecards and stickers are made from FSC certified recycled, acid free paper, and printed with soy-based inks - all to ensure that they are compostable and will biodegrade without leaving toxins behind.
