This holiday season you’ve probably been bombarded with ads and flashy store windows asking you to buy their products. With so many choices for buying gifts, it can be hard to know why you should choose one brand over another. Here are a few reasons why your Boll & Branch ethical gifts are truly special.
You’re Supporting a Small Business
With the rise in popularity of Small Business Saturday, shoppers are seeing the value in supporting local businesses who are having a big impact on their communities.
Boll & Branch was founded in 2014 by a husband and wife team to create the softest sheets in the world. Since then we’ve expanded our product line to include blankets, towels, duvet covers, and more. This year we even opened our first retail store at the Mall at Short Hills, just a few miles from our Summit, New Jersey headquarters. So while we’ve experienced tremendous growth, listening to feedback, being accessible (you can always reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org) and maintaining our family culture for our growing group of 29 employees is at the heart of what we do.
We Make Products That Feel Good And Do Good
Yes, our sheets are unbelievably soft, and we like to say we’re obsessed with the details. That means we’ve thought through how to make our products better in every way, from start to finish. Here are a few examples of why Boll & Branch products are some of the most natural gifts on the market:
- Organic cotton: Made from non-genetically modified seeds and using no harsh chemicals. This is healthier for the workers who make our products and the customers who use them. Organic gifts give everyone a reason to smile.
- Environmentally-friendly: Our cotton is 100% reliant on rainwater, and we use eco-friendly dyes when finishing our products.
- Fair trade: Our workers are paid a living wage, there’s no child labor, and our factories all have safe working conditions. Fair trade gifts are good for everyone the product touches!
You’re Helping Us Make a World Of Difference
While we’ve taken steps to ensure our supply chain is fair and transparent, we know that’s not the case for many companies around the world. Unfortunately, modern slavery is still a big issue, and that’s why a portion every Boll & Branch purchase goes toward the fight to end human trafficking. Every item you buy is an ethical gift that goes so much further.
We choose to give back because we believe that everyone deserves a good night’s sleep—from our customers and factory workers to the farmers who pick our organic cotton. We’re incredibly thankful for your support of a cause we’re passionate about, and you can learn more at Not For Sale.
We hope you feel inspired knowing the good your organic, ethical, fair trade gifts are supporting, in your home and all around the world! Click one of the buttons below to share this article with your friends and family.
