Chico is committed to transparency and environmental advocacy. They take great care in crafting products that help humanity bag the single-use habit. They do this by advocating for waste reduction and designing the highest quality, longest lasting reusable bags.
Chico also has a Pay It Forward program, where you can send them your old, reusable bags and they will re-distribute them to fixed and low-income families ready to start a reusable bag habit. Alternatively, they will recycle them into new, useful products through partnerships with artists, crafters, and non-profit organizations.
Chico’s headquarters strives to be zero-waste by asking their employees to sort their waste into a variety of recycling, repurposing, compost, and landfill bins. With this system in place, each employee’s impact on the landfill is less than one pound per month.
In addition to being B-Corp certified, Chicos is also a member of the Fair Labor Association and a Green America Approved Business. They’ve also been voted the Best for the World for Environmental Impact 5 Years Running and Best Overall for 2018 by the B-Corp awards.
