Sustainability

Sustainability is defined as the avoidance of the depletion of natural resources in order to maintain an ecological balance. 

\HAUS\ A Home. is a sustainable home goods and services brand, based in Brooklyn, NY. Sustainability, ethical, and eco-friendly are words I don’t just throw around because they are trendy, these practices are top of mind in everything I manufacture, produce, buy and sell. It is also a priority in my personal life. I created this brand originally to find a way to turn my travels into something tangible, and in doing that I found my purpose. I want to help others become more sustainable. I don’t want it to feel like a job, I want it to be seamless and something you don’t even have to think about. 

Our candles are made from coconut wax (which is processed coconut oil), which is the most ethically sourced wax on the planet at the moment. Our wicks are made from FSC Certified (Forest Stewardship Council) mills in the US. That means they make sure that all practices are environmentally and socially responsible. Our jars are made of glass and are meant to be recycled/upcycled upon finishing your candle. I love turning my jars into pots for plants. I even give a pack of herbs for you to use! Our Palo Santo and White Sage come from an ethically sourced farm in Ecuador. We donate 10% of the profits from those sales to “The Palo Santo Project” to help replant Palo Santo trees. I definitely make sure that our packaging and shipping is as ethical as possible. Kraft boxes and recycled paper labels are used on all of our products. 

You may be wondering why I’m going on and on about how to I go about getting supplies and blah blah blah, but it’s because I always want to be transparent with you, the consumer. I’m very selective about the things I surround myself with, and I urge you to do the same. If you ever have any questions about any of our products, services or practices, drop a message and I’ll be more than happy to share. 

Welcome to our \HAUS\.
