We’re a women-run business with a love for sustainability and a passion for spreading the message about the foot-brain connection. Our belief in the balance between people, planet, and profit has led us to a partnership with a South America factory.When selecting a factory to manufacture Tucketts™, we decided to make the “people” part of the equation our priority to start. Our factory is fully engaged with the W.R.A.P. ethical principles; and belongs to a local clean production agreement with a tight-knit web of suppliers. We strongly believe in diversification of the apparel industry in order to increase sustainability of manufacturing. This is what initially attracted us to our factory; to help support emerging manufacturing regions and decrease the unemployment rate in South America.We’re proud to say that Tucketts packaging is 100% tree-free. Our aim is to use the minimum amount of paper to hold and display each pair of our socks. Our packaging is made from 100% sugar cane fiber; totally free of harmful dyes and chlorine bleach. It is completely biodegradable and recyclable. Likewise, the envelopes used to mail the socks are made from post-consumer & post-industrial material.
