The Festive season is upon us and as a result we start to hit that plastic money hard, but what if you could feel better about what you buy by purchasing from a company that are socially responsible and Eco friendly all the while giving back to those with developmental disabilities? Toad & Co, are the answer.
Their mission is not only simple, but some might argue noble, they want to clean up a dirty apparel industry, educate people on sustainable practices, and inspire folks to live their fullest lives, all the while making some quality men’s and women’s clothing. In fact, most of their clothes are made using the most sustainable fibers like certified organic cotton, Lenzing Modal® and Tencel®, recycled fibers, as well as earth-friendly fabrics.
They also think that corporate responsibility is important as well, as they are committed to promoting fair labor practices and safe working conditions in all factories producing Toad & Co goods. Their manufacturers are bound by a Workplace Code of Conduct that outlines their commitment to human rights and environmentally conscious practices. They also believe in giving back, a portion of every Toad & Co garment purchased directly contributes to creating opportunities for adults with disabilities from job training to outdoor adventures.
We were fortunate enough to be given the opportunity to try their Indigo flannel slim shirt and Kennicott quarter zip and were very impressed with both the overall fit and attention to detail. The flannel shirt was made from 100% organic cotton, with double patched-on chest pockets, bias-cut back yoke and very stylish chambray lining at cuffs and pockets. The shirt fit very well, was super comfortable and looked great with a good pair of jeans. We received quite the compliment from our co workers.
The Kennicott quarter zip was a similar affair with its blend of recycled wool and performance-boosting poly nylon. We were particularly fond of the contrast jersey at the collar and zipper which gives this classic the style makeover it needs. This coupled with the Prato wool blend gives this a soft, cozy feel that is perfect as a date-night sweater.
We are big fans of Toad & Co, their menswear fit well, was of high quality and we simply loved their mission to change the world and you should too.
