Since Maaji was founded, we have always felt it was important to give back to the community and support the environment; That is why wherever it was planting trees, or conducting beach clean-ups, we’ve always believed in sustainability and doing our part. However, we do realize and recognize we must do more. At that moment, we decided to make sustainability not an independent effort, but one that is fully integrated with how we think and act, a holistic approach to everything in our business.
We are committed to a path of cultural and social change that contributes to a more conscious world. The first step in this journey is for Maaji to become a certified B Corp, the gold standard in sustainability certification. The journey to becoming a B Corporation is a challenging one, but we believe one that we must take. We will provide quarterly updates of both our successes and learnings. We hope you will join us.

This is made in partnership with our suppliers, with who we have a close and long term relationship. Our creative and Innovation standards are aimed to using new materials and processes with lower environmental impact.

There are many other efforts we are undertaking, and we look forward to sharing them with you in the very near future, because one of our main pillars is transparency.
