Race For a Better Planet

At Honey Cake Tiger, we strive for sustainable and fair business practices throughout our brand. We believe that we should all take responsibility to do what we can to contribute to the health and welfare of our planet and the people living on it. Together we have the power to make a difference so let’s start today and leave a rad planet to our future generations! 

With Respect to the People & Planet

We love that all our garments are made of 100% organic cotton. We choose organic cotton because its fibers are clean.  Our garments are free from the toxins used to grow conventional cotton, which has a negative impact on the earth’s air, water, soil, wildlife and the health of the people who work and live in areas where conventional cotton is grown.

Production

Honey Cake Tiger is committed to keeping production as local as possible.  This commitment has a threefold benefit: we decrease our carbon footprint by minimizing the “traveling” of our products with our local manufacturing, support local businesses, AND we get to know the people who are involved in the production of our clothing. All our collections are designed, cut and sewn on a small scale in San Diego, California. Our fabric is knitted and printed in Los Angeles, California from organic yarn imported from India. We hope in the near future to find organic yarn spun closer to us in order to reach better transparency in our supply chain.

Giving Back

As small business owners committed to caring for the environment as the central philosophy of our business practice, we have partnered with One Tree Planted, an organization that is committed to safeguarding the “lungs” of the earth.  For every item we sell, we plant a tree with One Tree Planted.  Trees are not only critical for the health of our natural world, they are essential for all life on this planet.  The fact is simple: we cannot live without trees, so their protection and maintenance must be a priority.  To learn more, visit https://onetreeplanted.org/pages/why-tree

Fabric Waste Goal

Honey Cake Tiger aims to achieve zero waste around their production as much as they can. For instance, our kids face masks, garlands, and the strings we use to attach our hangtags are all made from leftover fabric generated by our cutting process. We are determined to find more ways to make use of our fabric byproducts. Stay tuned!

Sustainable Hang Tags

Trim, Packaging, Hangtags and More…

We challenge ourselves to source the most sustainable materials possible. Our hangtags are made from 100% post-consumer recycled paper. The tissue paper we use to wrap our garments and the mailer we use for shipping are fully recyclable, naturally biodegradable, and made from 97% post-consumer waste. Most of our garments are sewn with 100% organic cotton thread or Tencel™ Lyocell thread (sustainable and biodegradable). Future goals include identifying a sustainable alternative for our elastic.
