We need global change and veganism is a powerful tool that can be used to help save the world from hunger, poverty, and the impacts of climate change. In addition, it speaks to our belief that we do not have the right to exploit animals.
Did you know that about 92 million tons of textile waste is produced worldwide each year and that only 20% of that is recycled? We believe in reusing materials in order to reduce global waste, instead promoting a circular economy as a way of making production more sustainable.
Insecta is a company founded by women and composed, for the most part, of women. We advocate political and economic emancipation, the struggle for civil and reproductive rights, and believe in entrepreneurship as a tool of gender empowerment.

We believe in supporting local trade, and in helping Brazil to advance and find its place in the world. We also adopt fair trade relationships. This means we work to defend the rights of producers and workers and favour sustainable development of local labour.
B companies have a responsibility to provide solutions to social and environmental problems and are tasked with creating a positive impact.

PETA is the largest animal rights organization in the world, with more than 6.5 million members and supporters. Their seal of approval is a way of promoting, raising awareness about, and supporting practices, services, and products that are free of animal cruelty and 100% vegan.
Every business is responsible for the garbage it produces. The EuReciclo certification draws attention to the environmental impact of packaging. Their approval certifies that our company complies with the national solid waste policy--so that any waste generated is headed to the right place, both before and after the fact. In other words, that it will be re-recycled.
