We are proud to be a PETA-Approved Vegan company, but we know we can’t sit on our laurels. Being vegan is not enough. Out of the many vegan leathers available, we’re determined to use not only the best material for our products, but also for the environment.
As we endeavor to avoid using animal-based products, we are aware that we often turn to synthetic materials, such as polyurethane, polyester, synthetic rubber, recycled ABS, PVC, TPU, EVA, polystyrene, nylon and poly-viscose, which have their own environmental impacts. To maintain the delicate blend of being vegan and environmentally responsible, HEXA is investigating offset strategies so that we will achieve a neutral to positive impact with every item produced.
In addition to offsetting, we are also always on the lookout for new innovations in sustainable materials and manufacturing methods that we can apply to our supply chain to reduce our environmental footprint immediately. This includes constantly reassessing everything from packaging to logistics, not just manufacturing.
Our dedication to responsible excellence includes elevating local communities. So, we ensure that every supplier, factory, and other service provider we partner with treat their employees with respect and provide safe conditions and fair wages. We cannot claim our products are cruelty-free if our workers are not treated fairly.
We believe that environmental responsibility is all-encompassing and that everyone must play their part. And we are fully dedicated to ensuring HEXA is part of the solution, every step of the way.
