Cariloha Humanitarian & Sustainability Efforts
Portions of Cariloha customer purchases go toward Cariloha’s Bamboo Bike Project, which helps people in Africa to build bicycles made of bamboo as a sustainable form of transportation in Africa, sourcing the materials and supplies necessary to build bamboo bicycles in Africa and to train the local people to build the bikes.

Working closely with the EPA and the Organic Crop Improvement Association (OCIA), Cariloha has surpassed industry standards by using recyclable boxes and packaging instead of oil-based foam packaging.

Sustainability procedures include the 100% recycling and reuse of cotton waste, the reuse of drinking water in gardening, the use of only 100% water-based paints, a “closed loop” advanced spinning process that creates our bamboo fibers and reuses the solvents involved in the process, and the use of recyclable materials in our screen printing process, as well as the disposal of non-recyclable residues.
