PROP is a very small operation that works out of the home. We do the little things like recycle with curbside, compost and use energy efficient bulbs as much as possible. Much of our work load includes making deliveries. When weather permits we proudly deliver by bike. We use a local, family run screen printer and source either 100% organic cotton or made in the U.S. products.
PROP is continually seeking out cleaner and greener materials and processes. It is our goal to support and purchase from local businesses and suppliers whenever possible and to make sure that the products that are purchased have been manufactured responsibly, come from renewable resources, and have a low impact on the environment. Eventually we would love to source organic, U.S. grown hemp, but the current prices are not making that possible right now. Lastly, we would love to be able to support Portland apparel distributor, Looptworks, which uses “up-cycled” materials. As soon as it’s financially feasible, we will be partnering up with them!
If purchasing from a local business and supplier is not an option, PROP will make sure that the communities in the areas where our products are being sourced are benefiting and that the facilities are healthy, ethical places to work.
