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 partnered with 1% For The Planet and are in the process of certifying with the Climate Neutral foundation.
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 special process to break down. We've also taken special steps to prevent any plastic waste associated with 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 particular material, and are constantly on the lookout for earth-friendly innovations in textiles. We’re reminded of 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.
