Holstee was started by brothers Mike and Dave Radparvarhis in 2009 : We like to dream big, but understand that even the smallest decisions have big impacts. When we started Holstee our goal was to create a company that follows its heart and conscience with each and every decision (...) Ecology is more than recycled vs organic or biodegradable vs everlasting, it helps to bring into light anything and anyone impacted. As designers and curators we have the opportunity to reward organizations employing fair working conditions, using progressive materials and production procedures, and distribution methods that minimize their impact on the environment. In addition to being selective in how we curate and design, we also consider the impact once you have picked something up from our site, form shipping to sharing our success with those who could use the boost (...) Additionally, we've partnered with Carbonfund.org to offset the shipping we cannot reduce (...) 90%+ of Holstee packaging is recycled from the hangtags the shipping box you will receive (...) 10% of all sales at Holstee are used to empower entrepreneurs in the developing world through micro-lending.
