The decisions we make at our headquarters in Santa Barbara can impact facilities across the world, so we are the first step in upholding corporate social responsibility. We are committed to promoting fair labor practices and safe working conditions in all factories producing Toad&Co goods. Manufacturers who make our product are held to our Workplace Code of Conduct to provide employees with a sustainable work environment. Every year we visit vendors’ facilities to ensure first hand that we continue to produce our clothing with integrity.
We believe that you could visit any of our factories and leave not thinking less of Toad&Co or our products. When we partner with a manufacturer, we look for strong company leadership and a commitment to human rights and environmentally conscious practices. For example, our partner in Turkey manages the entire manufacturing process from organic cotton farming, to making fabrics, to assembling final garments. This dramatically reduces the environmental footprint associated with material transportation and increases traceability on all production platforms. Recently they have converted almost the entire factory to solar and wind energy – a transition that has reduced their carbon emissions by half. We are proud of the long-lasting relationships we have with many of our vendors.
