The social and environmental impact of The Only Jane is of great importance to me. Where there are opportunities to use more sustainable materials, I take them. To me, responsible manufacturing means always choosing the option that's better for people and the planet. Here are some things to know about The Only Jane:
The white version of Jump One is made from upcycled ecru denim. This fabric, which was found at a showroom for leftover yardage in Los Angeles, is made of 40% BCI certified cotton. It is also raw, which means it hasn't been washed, treated, or dyed by the mill or by me.
Orders placed online will be shipped in a box made of post consumer material. This box can be recycled or reuse it.
Packaging is intentionally minimal. No hangtags or tissue paper are included in order shipments. My poly bags, which are designed to keep orders protected during shipping, are made of recycled plastic and can be recycled again.
All of the paper goods included in order shipments are made of 80% FCS certified post consumer material.
The Only Jane is manufactured in Los Angeles at factories that comply with California labor laws and adhere to the state's strict guidelines for water usage and disposal.
Jump One is not a perfect product. It is a fine start. I promise to continue to do more as the company grows slowly.
