Sustainability at Everlastly

We believe people really can change the world.

Everything you buy has an environmental cost, but it may not be what you think.

We’ve set out to help shoppers make more sustainable choices by empowering them with knowledge right when they need it–on the virtual shelf.

While we may not be able to assess every factor, we’re starting with the most reliable sustainability data we can access. Here’s what we take into account at the current time when we talk about sustainability at Everlastly:

  • Carbon Footprint: a measurement of the greenhouse gases emitted from the creation and transportation of consumer products
  • Durability: the predicted lifespan of a product once it’s been purchased
  • Packaging: how efficient and environmentally responsible a product’s packaging and shipping materials are
  • Circularity: a philosophy of manufacturing products using recycled or biodegradable materials. We also value take-back programs that put the responsibility on the manufacturer to recycle or upcycle components
  • Certifications: an assessment of legitimate ecological and energy certifications from reliable organizations around the world

 

Our Approach

We’re just beginning our journey to uncover the truth about the impacts of the way we shop, but we’re committed to getting better every day. To make a big difference, you have to be willing to take on big challenges.

Here’s how we plan to shift the economy toward a more sustainable future:

  • Scientific Data: Research and rate the environmental impacts of popular home goods with Evergrade
  • Transparency: Give consumers clear, easy to understand sustainability scores to help them make better choices when they’re considering a purchase
  • Discovery: Analyze data and report on our findings to demonstrate the demand for sustainable products across a range of categories
  • Empowerment: Build a movement that encourages businesses and consumers to be more sustainable
  • Market Forces: As consumer demand for sustainable products grows, the market will drive businesses to compete on price, quality, and sustainability


Why We Exist

Our Mission is to enable consumers to vote with their wallets for an economy that is good for people and the planet, ultimately without sacrificing the things they really want.

Massive wildfires, catastrophic floods, record-breaking heatwaves, critical droughts. Scary stuff, right?

It’s easy to feel helpless in the face of climate change, but don’t! We all have the power to make a difference.

At Everlastly, we want to make it easier to do that every time you shop.

The truth is, shopping for the most part isn’t great for the planet. But your dollars are like a vote, and every time you buy a sustainable product, you’re telling companies that being sustainable is good for business.

Here’s the rub: it’s not that easy to know what’s really sustainable in the face of all the complicated data, buzzwords, greenwashing, and conflicting information out there.

Everlastly is here to change that. We’re gathering millions of data points to build a simple rating system you can trust to help you understand the environmental costs of your purchases. It’s called Evergrade.

We use Evergrade to review and rate every product we sell so you can make informed decisions about what you choose to bring into your home. Because we only offer the most sustainable options in each category, you can shop with confidence knowing that you’re making a more responsible choice, whatever you buy.

We’re out to prove that the more consumers choose to shop sustainably, the more businesses will strive to meet the demand for products that are better for people and the planet.
