- Our Ingredients: We source our pigments and natural ingredients from businesses across the globe, but they have plenty in common—each one is small, family-owned, and harvests its ingredients sustainably.
- Our Safety Testing: Our paints, pigments, and supplies have been tested by government-certified labs and are third party tested. They are labeled in accordance with ASTM D4236-94(2021). We take every precaution in selecting safer alternative ingredients when formulating our paints.
- Our Packaging: We use 100% post-consumer recycled packaging, home-compostable pigment pouches, and recyclable glass and aluminum bottles for our products.
- Our Facilities: We operate out of a solar-powered facility in Southern Oregon that also serves as a community drop-off site to reuse packaging materials. Additionally, all our kit boxes are created in a wind-powered facility.
- Our Certifications: We’re committed to a truly eco-friendly business model as reflected by our prestigious Gold certification from Green America, the highest rank for a green business.
- Our Contributions: We believe being eco-friendly means not only creating a sustainable business, but also a sustainable world. That’s why we give a portion of our profits from each purchase to organizations like One Tree Planted, Rogue Climate, Rogue River Keeper, Green America, and many more.

After a package leaves our facility, it becomes the responsibility of the contracted carrier to get it to you. Any issues or problems that arise must be resolved with them directly. For USPS orders in particular, we've be instructed that it is best for the recipient to first speak with their local post office regarding any concerns.
We work hard to ensure orders are processed and received as quickly as possible, but unfortunately, we're unable to locate lost or delayed packages. We recognize errors happen and ask for your patience in those circumstances, but we will not ship replacement items or issue refunds until a formal determination is made by the carrier. Please use the resources outlined above to seek resolution if needed.
