Sustainability & the Environment
On this page you'll find information and resources on environmental sustainability.
What are we doing here at HOME to help?
- We produce all of our clothing right here in Canada - specifically, 300 meters from our Headquarters in Truro, Nova Scotia. This reduces shipping distances, packaging materials, and waste levels that are typically associated with international clothing production.
- We use sustainable, reusable, or recycled packaging materials wherever possible.
- We continually encourage our customers to incorporate green practices into their explorations - whether that's leave no trace, pack-in pack-out, or simply respecting and protecting the beautiful land that we all call HOME.
