Grain is an American design practice dedicated to social and environmental responsibility, uniting current manufacturing technologies and age-old craft techniques. Goods are produced in small batch runs in their Bainbridge Island, WA studio or through special collaborations with expert artisans in the US and abroad.
Grain is a majority female-owned business committed to mitigating and eliminating their carbon footprint. The company endeavors to be as environmentally and socially responsible as possible, working with materials that are long-lasting, non-toxic, made using recycled content, from well managed renewable resources and/or are reusable or recyclable at the end of their useful life. Grain reuses, recycles or composts as much as possible, and packaging is designed to be minimal and is made from 100% post-consumer waste chipboard.
A percentage of annual revenues goes back to environmental nonprofits. For 2020 giving and beyond, Grain's donations will be divided into carbon offset projects, wilderness preservation and employee selected social and environmental nonprofits.
