When we say that TBô is built on sustainability and ethics, we mean that from the ground up.
Here are the three foundational ways that TBô is minimizing its impact on the planet and ensuring the wellbeing of everyone in the supply chain, including you.
As part of the 400,000-strong Tribe, your feedback guides everything TBô does, from the products that get made, to the design of the website and logo.
Most importantly, your input drives real-time demand. The Tribe gets first dibs on newly co-created products even before production begins. This pre-order phase works a bit like crowdfunding, letting us know exactly how many pieces to produce so we avoid overproduction and waste.
All TBô bodywear is made from this exceptional fabric. Not only is bamboo a quickly renewing plant (it can grow 36 inches in a single day), but it also requires far less water than cotton and thrives without pesticides.
Even so, you can’t call yourself a sustainable brand, just because you use a sustainable material. It’s what happens in the production process that matters. We take the responsibility for TBô’s entire supply chain seriously by visiting every factory, supplier and partner in person and requiring them to meet these rigorous certifications:
The product arrives at your door in a thin cardstock envelope that’s both recyclable and biodegradable.
Inside you’ll find your order, pure and simple.
We’ve done away with superfluous garment tags and packing materials to give you a waste-minimizing experience from start to finish.
One percent of TBô’s annual sales goes towards highly vetted environmental and humanitarian non-profit agencies. As part of the Tribe, once again it’s you who decides how the money will be spent and the products distributed. You can weigh in right now on which of the seven core funds you’d like to support: Climate, Food, Land, Pollution, Water, Wildlife or Humans, as well as any specific project or initiative you’d want TBô to support.
And because having underwear should be a basic human right, TBô works with registered emergency shelters and relief organizations to supply products to those in need.
