We want to make every effort to ensure the next generation can enjoy blue oceans, green mountains, clear air, clean streets, and plenty of snow. That’s why we’ve dedicated at least 10% of our profits to social and environmental initiatives. We've also partnered with 1% For The Planet, are Climate Neutral Certified, and are a registered Utah Benefit Corporation.
QEJA is also dedicated to keeping our packaging out of the landfill. This is possible by using 100% recycled paper for our sock bands and EcoEnclose 100% recycled envelopes to lovingly ship your socks to you. These products are curb-side recyclable and don’t require any unique process to break down.
We've also taken extraordinary steps to prevent plastic waste from shipping, storing, and receiving. The ONLY plastic used in our entire operation is in the sock itself, which is very durable and certainly not 'single use.'
Our socks are made primarily from organic cotton, ethically sourced from Egypt. The sole and heel construction comes from an anti-microbial and performance nylon called Q-SKIN. We are exploring non-virgin versions of this material and are constantly looking for earth-friendly innovations in textiles. Remembering the adage, “Sustainability is a journey, not a destination.”
Please help us on the journey. If you have suggestions for how we can do better, please let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org.
