Our commitments were created to keep our actions aligned with our intentions for health, wellness and mindful consumption.
Kinsho is committed to low waste, sustainable and eco-friendly practices.
- Products are made of 100% recyclable material.
- Our packaging is purposefully minimal and fully biodegradable.
- Our factory partners have passed safe, fair and clean manufacturing inspections.
- We use ocean shipping 99% of the time:
- The greenest way to ship is via ocean freight, which has the lowest carbon-emission of any mode. In fact, it’s so low, the World Shipping Council found that a shipment of cargo from Australia to Long Beach (approximately 8,000 miles) produces less carbon emissions than trucking the same goods from Long Beach to Dallas (approx. 1,500 miles).
- Our office is digital, virtual, uses recycled scrap paper for all writing needs and consumes zero-waste lunches (e.g., cloth napkins, no leftovers left behind…)
We are a woman (and mom!) owned business and commited to supporting other women.
Some of our business partners and collaborators include:
- Our global shipping partner, based in Boston and China is owned by Leslie. Her team manages all our freight logistics. She is an anomaly in the male dominated world of global shipping. We are one of her smaller clients and we are very lucky and honored to work with her team.
- Our branding and web design team in Washington state, Shiloh and Rachel, keep our product packaging, website and even our founder’s book cover, looking amazing.
- Several of of our popular products are made in Molly’s factory. Molly is another pioneer working successfully in the male dominated world of manufacturing.
- We are part of the vibrant BranchFood community in Boston, founded and run by Lauren. She is a master connector and hands-on supporter of food entrepreneurs,
- So far, all of our Instagram promotions and bento menu recommendations are with women-owned businesses. We see the everyday hustle of our peers and love doing what we can to support!
