Sustainability does not apply only to how we address materials issues, but to people as well. The contractors we employ to help create each piece are paid a minimum wage of $15 an hour, though many partners whose services we employ are paid significantly more. This includes casting, casting cleanup, show helpers, printing, marketing & design, among many others.

We may pay more for packaging, materials, or displays, but we’re also supporting idealistic, local, and/or artisan businesses including, but not limited to, the ones linked here.
