Environment

Consciously made in consideration of our planet and its people. 

Carbon

Porto is a carbon-neutral company.

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

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 meaningful value through a balance of style and function. For that reason we only produce minimal, versatile, and enduring forms.

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 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

Our production is done 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 women behind it. 

Packaging

Our packaging is minimal and crafted only with recycled materials. Each shipment includes a FSC-approved 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.
