Environment

 

Carbon

Porto is a carbon-neutral company.

In partnership with Pachama, we calculate our operational carbon footprint and sustain land in Hudson Farm, a conservation park near our studio in New York, in order to totally neutralize our environmental impact and preserve critical wildlife habitat. 

We invite our community into our reforestation efforts by planting one tree for every order with One Tree Planted.  

 

Design 

We believe sustainability begins with the intention to create value through understated and enduring designs.

 

Materials

Every material is chosen with attention given to source, longevity, and sustainability. We partner with decades-old, family-owned Italian tanneries and mills. Our tannery is LWG-certified, REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization, and Restriction of Chemicals) compliant, and adheres to the strictest E.U. guidelines to protect human health and the environment. 

Nappa goat leather: byproduct of the food industry; treated with chrome in order to lend it a supple quality, uniform coloring, and longer life. 

Cotton: GOTS-certified organic and biodegradable.

 

Production

The collection is made by hand in small batches at a family-owned factory in Italy. This is gentler on the environment as well as the skilled craftsmen and craftswomen responsible.

 

Packaging

Our packaging is crafted only with recycled (and recyclable) materials. Each shipment includes a FSC-certified recycled notecard, care card, tissue paper, and sticker—all made from 100% recycled pulp that is acid-free and chlorine-free—within a biodegradable shipping envelope made from 100% recycled post-consumer content.
