The fashion industry is one of the most polluting industries in the world, and it’s time we rethink the materials, processes, and packaging used to create our beloved purchases. This is why we’ve done the upfront legwork and vetted our brands to ensure that our planet’s health is top of mind for them as well.
Women lift up half of the sky - by investing in women, you’re assisting in the process of creating more wealth for families and communities. The successes of women shape the way young girls see themselves as they develop into leaders, and it's essential for the world to provide leaders that mirror half of the population.
The secret behind the beauty, personal-care, and fashion industry is that they’re virtually unregulated, and therefore, allowed to use untested chemicals in their products. Exposure to these ingredients can be harmful overtime, and that’s why we’ve vetted each and every single one of these brands to ensure that they’re up to standards for those looking for a cleaner beauty routine or may be more sensitive to harsh ingredients.
Here at ourCommonplace, all brands have our ethical stamp of approval, which encompasses decent working conditions, treatment of workers, and fair-wages. Through providing a platform for purchasing ethical goods and ensuring all brands uphold ethical standards, we hope to take us towards a more equitable and just world.
We believe in uplifting BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) communities by empowering their businesses. By choosing to allocate your purchasing power to BIPOC-owned businesses, you're not only strengthening local BIPOC communities — you're also contributing to shrinking the racial wealth gap, fostering job creation, and propelling diverse representation across consumer industries.
Animal tests are often painful and cause the suffering and deaths of millions of animals every year. Having this stamp of approval means that no animals were tested on, harmed or killed in the process of making the product. When you opt in for cruelty-free brands, you’re opting out of animal testing, and investing in clean products that are made for the benefit of your body, animals, and the environment.
Our own take on the classic boot sock. These cozy socks feature our proprietary SilverSpun® yarn in the foot and 100% upcycled material in the leg. SilverSpun® is the no-stink, no-germs and super cozy American made cotton yarn infused with pure silver, making it perfect for the foot of the sock where odor causing bacteria can develop. These socks do double-duty for both outdoor activities and cozy nights in.
Foot: 88% Combed American Cotton, 11% Silver/Nylon, 1% Spandex/Nylon
Leg: 100% Recycled Fiber (50% Upcycled Wool, 50% RPET). 100% dye-free and derives its unique colors from a color blend process that uses no chemicals or water.
The cotton is grown & milled in the USA. The socks are designed & produced in the USA.
Because of silver's antibacterial properties, you don't need to wash the socks as frequently. When you do wash them, machine wash cold on gentle cycle. Do not bleach. Tumble dry low. Do not dry clean or iron.
