Cognitive Surplus is a small and sustainable US brand that focuses on sustainable practices, green materials and an inclusive workplace. They have received several awards from the city of Portland and Oregon state.
They carefully select their suppliers on ecological and social grounds. Many of their products are manufactured in the USA. Those that are produced in India (bodies) and China (tote bags and notebooks) are either WRAP-certified or inspected by Cognitive Surplus themselves, and found to be working by high ecological and social standards.
Besides many other initiatives to minimize waste, water usage and energy, they also have a CO2 compensation program for every shipment.
