About Us

Curate /cu·​rate/ from Latin "curare" meaning "take care of"

Welcome to Curate, a carefully curated collection of sustainable & ethical clothing with a purpose. 

 

Our Mission

As we move into a new decade, we're determined to provide a place for people to shop for sustainable & ethical clothing & goods. We’re committed to taking care of the world we live in & improving our impact on the environment.

At Curate, we want you to become the curator of your wardrobe. Embrace your style & build your closet with responsible clothing that you’ll wear & love for years to come. By shopping for sustainable & ethical clothing, you can help reduce the negative effects of the fast fashion industry, like excess fabric waste, water pollution & unethical working conditions.

Through our carefully curated items, you can shop sustainable & ethical clothing, all in one place. 

 

Our Pillars

In an effort to develop a more people- & planet-friendly way to shop, we're dedicated solely to brands that have the same beliefs. Our core pillars are sustainable practices & materials, ethical working conditions & giving back to the environment. 

We make sure that all of the brands that we partner with are committed to making a positive impact on the environment. 

These are some of the ways that the different brands we carry implement sustainable & ethical practices:

  1. Produce clothing using recycled materials
  2. Use compostable & biodegradable fabrics
  3. Garments are hand-drawn & handmade to order
  4. Reduce water usage
  5. Recycle & clean water before reintroducing the water to drain systems
  6. Eliminate toxic chemicals
  7. Utilize a low waste design process
  8. Limit fabric waste
  9. Diminish the use of plastics
  10. Produce garments in a wind-powered factory
  11. Use 100% Certified Organic Cotton
  12. Pay garment workers a living wage
  13. Provide clean & safe working facilities
  14. Make garments from recycled PET bottles
  15. Donate to organizations that support green initiatives

 

Our Commitment

To help offset the negative impacts of our carbon footprint, we've partnered with One Tree Planted & will donate 1 tree per order. One Tree Planted is a non-profit organization focused on reforestation, rebuilding forests after fires and floods, providing jobs for social impact, and restoring biodiversity.

Every month, we neutralize our carbon shipping emissions via Offset, an app that allows us to counteract the negative environmental impact of the carbon emissions caused by our shipping.

 

Our Packaging

All of our products are shipped in 100% compostable mailers or 100% recycled boxes & with sustainable packaging materials.

Our tissue paper & stickers are FSC certified, meaning that Forest Stewardship Council certifies that the paper products are sourced from a forest and supply chain that is managed responsibly and sustainably. The paper is also acid-free & printed with soy-based inks. The paper is made from cellulose fiber where the active acid pulp is eliminated during processing. It is also lignin- and sulfur-free, meaning that the ink won’t transfer from the tissue and the paper won’t leave behind any of these chemicals when decomposing. Soy inks are an eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based inks, made from soybeans, a renewable resource.

The tape we use on our boxes features a renewable, reliable, and biodegradable plant-derived adhesive and backing.

The GreenWrap bubble wrap we use is naturally biodegradable, compostable, SFI-certified, and fully recyclable.
