Animal Packer's Ethics

Supply Chain
At Animal Packers we take our full supply chain into consideration. That means you can rest assured that every step along the way, from design to production, to shipping and fulfillment, our backpacks have been handled with care and everyone involved has been treated fairly.

We Visit the Factory
The first thing we do is actually VISIT the factory that will produce our bags. When we are welcomed with open arms, and allowed to walk around with ease, we know that factory has nothing to hide.

We've visited the factories several times, and have always been impressed.

We Audit for Social Compliance
We ensure that the factory has major Social Compliance Certification, such as BSCI Disney Authorization based on Disney International Labor Practices. Even if the factory has these certifications, we commission a Social Compliance Audit to be done on our behalf. The factory must pass for these things:
  • No Child Labor
  • No Forced Labor
  • No Discrimination
  • Fair Wages
  • Fair Working Hours
  • Safe Working Conditions
  • Environmental Responsibility
Eco-Friendly Packaging
We’ve designed our packaging to be both fun for kiddos and eco-friendly! How? Our shipping box, made from 200lb. cardboard, protects the contents during shipping and is reusable. Our white box features black-line cartoon drawings of our Spokes-Mutt, Rocket. Kids can color the box with markers, crayons or paints then use it to store their special treasures!
Carbon Footprint Offset

Shipping is one of the largest polluters of our planet. So how do we responsibly import our bags? We use a Freight Forwarder who will calculate the Carbon Footprint of each shipment. We have opted into this Carbon Footprint Offset Program.
