As we head into the 4th of July weekend, we’re feeling excitement, patriotism and we’re ready to celebrate! We’ve been rooting on Team USA in the World Cup and we’re definitely feeling the USA love around Dogeared these days. But, it’s YOUR love has kept our dreams alive! Because of you, our commitment as a certified B Corporation to create a beautiful community and meaningful handcrafted designs in the USA has never been stronger.
Handcrafted in the USA
Since our founding in 1991, 100% of our employees and operations are in the USA! We don’t outsource labor or materials. Our headquarters in Culver City, CA currently consists of two large buildings where we handcraft all of our products. That means that everything from design and production, to quality control and packaging, marketing and sales, shipping and customer service… happen here! Having the start-to-finish process in-house allows us to closely monitor daily operations and be able to instantly improve upon both the quality of our products, and the experience for our customers.
Recycled Materials & Local Vendors
Being a part of the B Corp community, we’ve made a pledge to take responsible and meaningful action to be kind to our planet! We’re really into recycling, (did you know we have a garden club?!) and we try to use recycled components and materials whenever possible with our jewelry. 75% of our revenue is generated from products made with recycled materials. Dogeared also sources the majority of our products locally from vendors around Los Angeles, many of whom we’ve known for 10+ years and consider family.
Locally Employed & Giving Back
Since the beginning, Dogeared has been a values-driven corporation committed to giving back to the community through partnerships with several nonprofit organizations. Dogeared employees are given 16 volunteer hours per year to give back. We actually have really fun volunteer days, where we head into local communities to offer helping hands. As a B Corp, Dogeared is committed to creating social and environmental change by using business as a force for good. We employ locally to ensure an investment back into the local economy, and we know that it inherently fosters stronger community involvement. Each one of us is excited every time we go into the neighborhoods where we live and are able to give something back.
We love our Dogeared customers and it’s your ongoing support that allows us to continue on our path to make good things happen.
