      A guide for being a sustainable consumer

      A guide for being a sustainable consumer

      Being sustainable is a lifestyle, not a trend. This is evident at a brand level; many companies have tried to adapt sustainable practices but have failed in the long run, as it is not a grounded priority in their company culture. As a company that has focused on being sustainable from the very start, we are satisfied with the quality of our products and our earth-friendly manufacturing procedures.

      As a customer, you can have a say in the kind of companies you want to shape the future, by making smart choices in the companies that you acquire products from. Here are some ways in which you can make sure that you are supporting sustainable brands:
      • Look for products that are qualified by third parties:
        In this case, you can ask about any certifications that the company has acquired in sustainability, whether it is in their procedures, the materials they use or the regulations they meet when they create their products. These certifications are granted by third parties, which audit the companies constantly, making sure they comply to said regulations and sustainable standards.
      • Seek companies that practice the big Rs:
        There are many creative companies out there that are innovating in their making methods to make sure they reuse, reduce and recycle as much as possible, putting the environment first and reducing their ecological footprint. If these principles are at the core of their identity, it is a good sign they adhere to other sustainable practices as well.
      • Support companies that make contributions to their local communities:
        An important part of building a sustainable world, is supporting a sustainable and dignified way of life for everyone. Looking for companies who invest in the communities that they work with helps making fair trade, equal education and access to basic human rights accessible to everyone;  sustainability has to be a win-win for everyone.
       

      3 ways you can stay sustainable during COVID

      3 ways you can stay sustainable during COVID

      During the last couple of decades, we have seen the effects of global warming become more catastrophic for all living organisms on earth. Taking immediate action is extremely needed and as a company, we’ve been working to be a part of the solution since we started operations and now, under the biggest global pandemic we’ve seen in modern times we’re looking out for those companies that share our commitment.
      The products by KARETAS have really caught our attention, because by acquiring products, you support a compromise for a better, more sustainable future. Here are three simple ways that you reduce your footprints in our planets by helping them:
      • Face shields made to recycle: These guys go the extra mile, by not only making products from recyclable materials, but also making sure that their face shields are easily recyclable. In this way you can be sure that, even after these products reach their full life cycle, they will not end up in a landfill or the ocean.
      • Face shields designed to last longer: This global pandemic has meant a considerate increase in disposable protection products that are thrown out after a single use. KARETAS face shields are durable, reusable, and are meant to last as long as a year when properly taken care of! You can just clean the face shield after every use with a small piece of fabric and your favorite disinfectant and, Voila, you can reuse on the daily! 
      • You get to directly help first help responders: We have all had some difficult times during this pandemic, but there is no doubt that first help responders have had the roughest time. Doctors, nurses, and teachers are some of the groups of amazing people that have been at the front and center in this pandemic. When you purchase a face shield from KARETAS, they donate a portion of their proceeds to help first responders get the Personal Protection Equipment they need!
