Our Sustainability Journey

At Lori April, we're on a mission to tread lightly on the planet while bringing you uniquely crafted tote bags and accessories. Our journey towards sustainability is woven into every aspect of our creations, from the fabrics we select to the way we package our products. Here's how we're making a difference:

Plastic-Free Promise

We are committed to eliminating plastic from our operations. This means finding innovative ways to replace plastic components with materials that have less environmental impact. We believe in leaving a minimal footprint, which is why you won't find plastic in our packaging or in the final product.

Consciously Sourced Fabrics

The heart of our creations lies in the fabrics we choose. Sourced from companies that share our commitment to sustainability, we prioritize natural over synthetic, organic when available, and always with an eye towards ethical production. While not all our fabrics are organic, our goal is to increase our use of organic materials as they become more accessible.

Transitioning to Natural Threads

Durability is key in our creations. Initially, we chose polyester thread for its strength, aiming to extend the life of our products. However, in our quest for sustainability, we've discovered natural thread alternatives that meet our durability standards. We are in the process of phasing out polyester thread, transitioning to 100% natural thread once our current supplies are depleted.

Recycled and Recyclable Materials

In every aspect of our business, from the studio to your doorstep, we strive to use recycled materials. Our commitment extends to our packaging and office supplies, utilizing recycled paper and minimizing waste wherever possible.

Animal-Free Products

Our creations are crafted with respect for all life. We ensure that our products are animal-free, aligning with our vision of compassion and sustainability.

A Continuous Journey

Sustainability is a journey, not a destination. We are constantly learning, growing, and adapting our practices to ensure a better future for our planet. Your support and feedback are invaluable as we strive to improve and expand our sustainable practices.

Join Us

We invite you to join us on this journey. With every purchase, you're supporting sustainable practices, ethical sourcing, and a vision for a more environmentally conscious fashion industry. Together, we can make a difference—one tote bag at a time.
