Jax & Moonie is committed to sustainability, which is why all of our Dog Collar Tags are made with Vegan Cactus leather from Desserto®; a manufacturer also focused on sustainability based in Guadalajara, Mexico. Cactus is a natural carbon sink, in addition, it has a great CO2 absorption capacity. From the 14 acres at Desserto®, they are able to absorb 8,100 tons of CO2/year while at their farm we only generate 15.30 tons of CO2 annually. Since the official launch, Desserto® has received important international awards like the Green Product Award, MCFW Sustainable Fashion Award, PETA Compassionate Business Award, Good Design Award, Innovation Award by Architectural Digest and Samsung. They've also received a special mention as second runner up at the LVMH Innovation Award and favorite in materials category. Desserto® is committed to create new sustainable solutions and promoting ethical practices through the industry value chains to help build a better world through the fashion industry.
We are committed to our packaging just as much as our products. Which is why we've teamed up with EcoEnclose for all of our shipping boxes, tape, envelopes and more. All of this packaging is recycled, recyclable and naturally biodegradable packaging- making us very proud of how we ship! In addition, Jax & Moonie is a member of PrAna's Responsible Packaging Movement committed to plastic-free packaging. We encourage you to adopt these initiatives in your own brand as well as the brands that you purchase from. As PrAna says, "Let's do this together".
All Jax & Moonie products are handmade in the USA by Co-Founders, (and husband and wife), Matt and Meilani. Each piece is carefully curated with our customers (and their pup) in mind.
