our sustainability promise
one of our favourite things at Cove Cap Co. is exploring our local natural surroundings and we want to do our part to help protect and preserve them. we promise to you to be a brand that leaves the planet better than we found it!
how will we do that?
we chose to use GOTS Certified organic cotton because it is safer for our kiddos and for mama earth. traditional cotton is a very thirsty crop and uses chemical fertilizers and pesticides that contaminate our air, soil and waterways and affect human health. organic cotton uses 62% less energy and can be grown using up to 91% less water than its non-organic counterpart. 80% of organic cotton crops are rainfed, not irrigated, and farmers are also able to produce these plants without drawing heavily on local water resources. organic cotton is grown and manufactured without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides leading to better soil conditions, lower greenhouse gas emission, stronger biodiversity, and better health among cotton growers. it's better and safer for the farmers, the planet and your little ones!
our fabrics are STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX, which is one of the world's best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. this label means that you can be certain that every component of our fabric has been tested for harmful substances and therefore is harmless for human health.
we have partnered with a family owned Canadian manufacturer to support local businesses and help foster and grow a thriving community. our partner has an emphasis on an ethical work environment, offering fair wages with a safe and clean working space.
all Cove Cap Co. caps are shipped from our manufacturing partner in recyclable cardboard boxes stuffed only with recyclable brown paper if needed, never with any plastic.
we ship all of our caps to you in a compostable / biodegradable mailer that is home and industrial compostable. this means you are able to safely put the packaging into your home compost or into your city green bin* and it will turn into dirt in no time.
*we suggest you check with your city green waste guidelines.
labels + marketing materials
all Cove Cap Co. caps come with a hang tag that is recyclable - and it would make a great holiday decoration too!
we are so thankful for every cap purchase we send you a ‘thank you’ postcard but the best part is that it is blank so you can pass on the thanks to someone else!
let’s close the loop!
when your Cove Cap Co. cap is no longer needed, we suggest selling it, handing it down to siblings or friends or donating to a kid in need.
if you love and wear your cap so much that it gets a hole we suggest sewing a patch over it - choose a fun complimentary colour!
