From day one, Dogeared has been passionate about giving back, creating opportunity, being socially responsible and environmentally conscious.
In 2011, we became one of the first companies to become a Certified B-Corporation (B-Corp), a new corporate structure dedicated to redefining the success of business as a force for good. Through purpose-driven practices, we aspire to be the change we seek in the world.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 1,400 certified B-Corps from 42 countries in over 120 industries working together towards one unifying goal – to redefine success in business.
We’re dedicated to handcrafting beautiful products through conscious processes. We use recycled sterling silver and are committed to keeping our products 100% nickel-free. Even our paper cares! We use FSC-certified catalogs along with recycled mailers and boxes.
handcrafted in the USA
We lead by example to create positive social change. We’re committed to supporting our employees, community and the local economy by handcrafting all of our products in the USA.
We aim to minimize harm to the environment by eliminating the use of toxic substances at Dogeared, and in their place use environmentally friendly cleaning substances and supplies for office use. We do this to reduce pollution and the release of harmful chemicals to protect the earth’s ecological balance with other living things. Dogeared uses only eco-friendly/biodegradable supplies, including cups, napkins, plates, cutlery and straws, as well as reusable glass beverage dispensers and metal serving utensils for larger events.
Since all of our operations, production and employees are in the USA, we offer fair wages, health insurance, paid volunteer days, team rallies and more!
As a B-Corporation, we value every opportunity to give back to our communities. In support of this philosophy, each team member is provided two paid days off per year to volunteer at a non-profit entity of their choice.
Every hour counts! Dogeared is building a better world one hour at a time. In 2015, we logged over 1220 volunteer hours. We’re so excited to put time and love into some of our favorite organizations, including:
- One Voice
- Do Good Bus
- Hope For Justice
- NFTE (Networking For Teaching Entrepeneurs)
- Environmental Charter School
- American Red Cross
