What’s more, the people who make the KOKOLU products work in a fair, clean and safe environment, and are paid above award wages; the KOKOLU items are packaged in environmentally-friendly, FSC-certified packaging; and KOKOLU donates 1% of their sales revenue in collaboration with 1% For The Planet revenue and plants one tree for every purchase made.

We only use either recycled, natural, or biodegradable materials to make our products and we apply the most innovative techniques such as 3D knitting and waterless dyeing to reduce waste and energy consumption.
Before we confirm to cooperate with our supply chain partners, we make sure that the workers are treated well and fairly. This includes a clean and safe working environment and fair and above average wages. That’s why we are so proud to have achieved B Corp Certification this year in January, the toughest certification for a company to get.
We use a waterless dyeing technique that uses 80% less water than average, and there is no wastewater. Our 3D knitting technique is a computer-programmed whole-shaped technology that produces almost zero waste material.
We work with One Tree Planted and 1% For The Planet organizations. For every purchase made, we plant one tree and donate 1% of our sales revenue. As well as 5% of our Pink Tote and socks sales are donated to breastcancer.org.
We trace our entire supply chain and that’s why we know clearly where and what our materials are made from. It is definitely complicated, but we’re continuously trying to further enhance our supply chain transparency.
Behind the Brand
“At KOKOLU, we believe in the power of women. As a female entrepreneur, founder, and CEO of KOKOLU I believe women dare to create change. Having witnessed nowadays people's frustration with excessive supplies, waste, and pollution, I think it is time to change the way people are living.”.
