Sustainability & the Environment

On this page you'll find information and resources on environmental sustainability. 
Every small action towards sustainable practices helps save our HOME.
Want to make a bigger impact? Get involved by asking your local representatives and our political leaders to step up for climate action and eco-friendly legislature. 
What are we doing here at HOME to help? 
- We produce all of our clothing right here in Canada - specifically, 300 meters from our Headquarters in Truro, Nova Scotia. This reduces shipping distances, packaging materials, and waste levels that are typically associated with international clothing production. 
- We use sustainable, reusable, or recycled packaging materials wherever possible. 
- We continually encourage our customers to incorporate green practices into their explorations - whether that's leave no trace, pack-in pack-out, or simply respecting and protecting the beautiful land that we all call HOME. 
Below you will find resources related to eco-activism, green initiatives, climate action in Canada, and more.
