Our Story

A Labor of Love

The Conscious Comfort was founded in 2020 on principles of sustainability, craftsmanship, and of course, comfort. We offer small-batch, locally made goods, with an emphasis on biodegradability and organic materials.

Our Sustainability Promise

Organic 

Only the highest quality USA grown and manufactured organic textiles are sourced, exclusively grown without the use of pesticides or herbicides, and manufactured without chemical processes or treatments. The colored cotton varieties seen across our family of products are natural and undyed.

Biodegradable

Every one of our products is designed to be fully biodegradable with zero synthetic elements. We are champions of natural organic fibers and will never compromise on our commitment to sustainability. All items sewn with organic cotton thread. All product labels are also 100% organic cotton printed with non-toxic inks. 

Domestic

In an effort to minimize our carbon footprint, we strictly source US grown and made materials. The Conscious Comfort proudly supports artisans, farmers, and other small businesses across the US that are committed to a more sustainable future through their regenerative and sustainable practices. In each of our listings you will find information pertaining to the origins and processes of our materials, as we believe transparency is the best policy. We are excited to have a hand in the revival of industries that once flourished, but were lost to outsourcing overseas.

Ethical

No sweatshops, no prison labor, no child labor. 

We put our money where our mouth is. Our items are sewn in-house in Jersey City, NJ and, when needed, at a local home studio just 10 minutes away. We are honored to support these skilled workers, who earn 25/hr and we hope more businesses follow suit in increasing wages for our valuable workforce across the nation. 

Our handwoven linens are also woven by artisans here in the US, who set their own rates. 

TCC products are vegan. No animal products or by-products are used.

Packaging + Shipping

The materials used across all of our shipping mailers, cards, tags, tissue paper, stickers, and tape are 100% recycled, recyclable, biodegradable, and plastic-free. Our tag string is 100% organic cotton. All materials are printed using a mixture of soy-based ink and non-toxic toner, and we are actively working to switch to 100% non-toxic toner across all our printing requirements. 

The paper for our product cards are made entirely from FSC-certified recycled paper and also 100% tree-free recycled cotton paper made from T-shirt industry waste. 100% of the electricity used to manufacture the paper is matched with Green e-certified wind energy and process chlorine free.

Our shipping is carbon neutral, offset by supporting thoroughly vetted environmental programs around the globe with each shipment. To learn more about our carbon neutral shipping, click here
