At Etalon, we believe that caring for the planet is another way of caring for the people who live here. That’s why our fabric is created from rPET (recycled post consumer plastic bottles) with a modified structure that makes it biodegradable. We also make every effort to operate our business sustainably.

What we choose:

ECO-FRIENDLY PACKAGING

We use recycled and recyclable paper where possible, and we choose biodegradable packaging options.

MINIMAL WASTE

We employ pre-ordering to avoid over-production, and our designs ensure minimum fabric waste during production.

E-BRANDING & PAPERLESS OFFICE

Technology helps us to be mindful about consumption. We use digital document processing and environmentally friendly office materials.

SUSTAINABLE MANUFACTURING

We collaborate with sustainable vendors and manufacturers who implement systems to minimize environmental impact and minimize waste.

FAIR PRODUCTION & TRANSPARENCY

Our bras are manufactured by people we personally know in our native San Francisco, CA.

SUSTAINABILITY & EMPOWERMENT PROGRAMS

We commit to sustainable choices and we give 1% of our profits to Mental Health programs.

THE MATERIALS MATTER

Sustainable Product

Each of our bras is made from the equivalent of 10 plastic bottles. The fabric is 79% recycled polyester (rPET) and 21% spandex. The chemical composition has been modified so it is biodegradable. It's OEKO-TEX® certified which means it's free from harmful substances. Our straps are also recycled, OEKO-TEX® certified, and though they are not biodegradable yet — we’re working on it!

Sustainable Packaging

Our boxes and stickers are made from 100% recycled material. They can be recycled together in the same stream further along their journey. We'd be happy to know that you re-use them, too! Our tissue is made from 100% recycled content, and it can be recycled or composted along with the sticker. Or you can give it a second life and use it as a gift wrap in the future!
