Our brand keeps our social purposes intertwined with our business purposes. As such, every year, Nana the brand gives back to its community in order to share our joy with the rest of the world.
Based on what’s going on in the world and the brand’s values, we have selected three organizations that we give back to every year.
The SPCA was the first animal welfare organization in Canada, and is the biggest in Quebec as we speak. Wherever there is ignorance, exploitation, cruelty or neglect, the SPCA comes in to help our beloved animals, giving them a second chance at a better life.
POUR 3 POINT
This organization makes a difference by supporting youth from underprivileged neighborhoods in Montreal, Canada, and by helping kids gain the skills they need to succeed in school and in life. More than 80% of the kids at P3P are within the black community, helping to curb systemic racism.
Plastic Ocean Foundation Canada
This non-profit organization’s purpose is to raise awareness about plastic pollution and make concrete efforts through a direct-action program; such as clean-ups on Canada’s three shores, eradicate single-use plastic, and foster solutions and changes through consumer behavior, corporate and public policy.
“Together we can create a healthier ocean for a healthier you.”
Plan International Canada – Because I am a girl
Every day, millions of girls around the world are denied their basic human rights, simply because they’re girls. This initiative supports girls’ rights in order to end many injustices based on gender, such as child marriage, lack of education, and gender-based violence.
Another social responsibility of ours is to go greener by the minute as a way of thanking our planet.
We are pleased to mention that recycled polyester has been integrated in our swimwear fabrics, and as of 2023 our whole swimwear line will be made of recycled polyester, which generates fewer CO2 and is made from recycled plastic bottles.
Everytime we can, we strive to create items in recycled materials, such as organic cotton rather than regular cotton. It does not use harmful chemicals and it produces 40% less CO2 than regular cotton production.
Our store’s mailing envelopes are made of 100% recycled content. Our store's boxes are made of at least 75% recycled content.
Even our hang-tags are made of recycled paper and a jute fibers (100% biodegradable)
Some hidden facts: When a retail production is made internationally, every item is shipped in individual plastic bags. These individual plastic bags are then shipped in bigger plastic bags and finally put in shipping boxes.
We've decided to have all of our production shipments packed in 100% recycled LDPE bags. This kind of plastic is estimated to take 500 to 1000 years to decompose. By re-using it, it’s our small way to show some love to our planet and avoid creating more waste.
As such, our team is constantly working on sourcing affordable materials leaving a lighter footprint for the next generations. Feel free to send us your green recommendations to firstname.lastname@example.org
