Our Sustainability Mission

To us, sustainability is much more than a “buzzword.” We’re committed to reducing our carbon footprint every day and it starts with where we source our goods from. We partner with vendors and artisans whose missions align with that of a sustainable and ethical process. Our vendors are consciously aware of their impact on the earth and are also continuously working to give back. 

At Bestowe, we use natural materials for our packaging that intentionally creates less unwanted and non-recyclable waste for our world by using biodegradable materials, shippers, and no plastic. We know our carbon footprint goes beyond our studio, so we ask our vendors to do the same when shipping to us to ensure these are gifts you can feel good about giving. 

Our mission is to do our part in reducing waste while giving back and focusing on preserving our planet and improving human lives
