• We take ethical aspects seriously.

    We are a Società Benefit: we have integrated into our corporate purpose, in addition to profit objectives, the aim of having a positive impact on society and the environment.

    We have invested many months in selecting suppliers who could guarantee us high product quality and at the same time respect for working, environmental and ethical conditions.

    For this reason we have chosen Italian artisan laboratories for the transformation, printing and finishing of the products and European wholesale producers who are ethical and certified for the origin of the raw material.

  • We use organic cotton and recycled materials.

    We only use neutral colors to reduce the environmental impact.

    The packaging and finishing of clothing is based on the principles of the Circular Economy: new life is given to waste and recycled materials.

    Broccoly notebooks are also produced in an artisanal way, using the logic of recycling and upcycling.

    For printing, both on fabric and paper, techniques with the lowest environmental impact are used.

  • Posters, tags and our catalogs are printed on FSC certified ecological paper made with by-products of agro-industrial processing and generated with 100% green energy. The inks used are eco-solvent.

    For packaging we use recycled paper and recycled and compostable material, as well as a reusable system designed for online purchases.

    Furthermore, we allocate a percentage of each sale to tree planting and are members of Vesti la natura, an association for the promotion of ethical and sustainable fashion.
