ETHICS

elSage is deeply rooted in doing things the right way. Quality and ethical manufacturing are core values. Giving back is also a key component of elSage.

All of our apparel is ethically made. Half of our goods are manufactured for us in the US, and half are manufactured overseas. All of the manufacturing is done under ethical standards with fair wages and treatment of workers. The inks we use are high quality, water based ink. Our ink gets softer with wear and will never crack.

Fabrics for plush are all sustainable fibers including organic cotton, hemp, and recycled content. Stickers are printed by Bryan in Oregon, printing supplies are purchased from Kevin in Washington, journals are made from recycled paper in Seattle. We love local, we are committed to using the best quality materials, and knowing the people who make that possible.

elSage is a part of the One Percent for the Planet network. This means that 1% of our gross sales is donated to an organization working towards a better environment. In 2014 we donated to Viva Farms, helping create grants and resources for independent organic farms, and Bike Works an organization training youth in the art of bicycle maintenance.

When you purchase something from elSage you are part of a company that is doing things with intention and integrity. Thank you for your business and please let us know if you have questions about our practices.
