Sustainability Initiatives

As a company, we’ve always been committed to producing cruelty-free products. As we continue to grow, we pledge to work to take steps forward in sustainability by sourcing materials that will help minimize our carbon footprint.

That’s our #PixiePromise to you.

Materials

Recycled Bottle Lining

Plastic water bottles? Not cool. Recycled fabric? Now that’s pretty awesome. Our SS20 collection diverted 100,000 plastic bottles from landfills, repurposing harmful plastic into recycled fabric to line the bags in our newest collection. 

No PVC

PVC is so last decade. We only use the highest quality PU leather materials in our products. PU is a form of vegan synthetic leather, typically lighter than animal leather, and does not use toxic chemicals like chlorine, which are harmful to the environment and our bodies, in the manufacturing process. It also works well in colder climates and is more durable  than PVC. So long, polyvinyl chloride!


Cork

All of our cork fabric is harvested from cork oak trees in rural areas throughout Portugal. When the tree has reached 20 years of age, cork is harvested in a sustainable method of removing the bark of the tree. Cork oak trees are the only trees that can have their bark removed and continue to live and grow for over 200 years. This highly sustainable material is 100% natural, biodegradable and  can be found used in a number of our bags, such as the Nicole Pouch.


Hardware

To ensure the safety of our consumers, all our hardware is tested and compliant to the EU REACH Standard which has been adopted to improve the protection of human health and the environment from the risks posed by chemicals. To learn more, click here.


Manufacturing

Biodegradable Packaging

By using corn-based packaging in our SS20 collection we have diverted 2 tonnes of plastic that would otherwise continue to sit in our landfills.

Worker Safety & Rights

To ensure the safety of all our workers and consumers, all our materials are tested to meet the CA Prop 65 standard annually. We take responsibility in upholding a safe environment for our consumers and workers through annual visits to our manufacturers to ensure standards are met. To learn more, click here.

Here at Pixie Mood, we understand the importance of providing our customers with products that are produced in a legal and socially responsible manner. We require all manufacturers to agree and adhere to strict standards for the production of the merchandise we sell. The standards include prohibitions on child and forced labour, as well as treating workers with respect and fair wages.

We ensure that:

  • No Forced Labour: No use of forced labor, whether it is prison, indentured or bonded labour
  • No Child Labour: No person younger than 15 years of age shall be employed
  • No Harassment or Abuse: All employees shall be treated with respect and dignity. No employee shall be subjected to any physical, sexual, psychological or verbal abuse
  • Health and Safety: Employers shall provide a safe and healthy working environment for all employees
  • Wages and Benefits: Employers shall pay employees sufficient wages to meet at minimum their basic needs

EPE Foam

Any foam found in our packaging is EPE foam, a 100% recyclable material. This foam is used to package some of our products to protect them and to retain their shape. Please recycle your EPE foam after unwrapping your new bag!
