SOS Initiative

Endeavoring to do better.

Our commitment to sustainability has always been at the core of what we do, and now we are putting our money where our mouth is. With every order placed on our website, one tree is planted, one plastic bottle is removed from the sea, and 1kg of carbon is offset. You're not just getting a product – you're making a significant impact on the environment by land, air, and sea.

We've partnered with Greenspark to increase our positive impact on the planet and its people. As we move forward into the world, we are taking every step possible to care for our planet.

1kg Carbon offset


One tree is planted.

Trees not only provide essential oxygen and filter air pollutants, but they also support biodiversity by providing habitats for countless species of plants and animals. By planting trees, we're helping to combat deforestation, restore ecosystems, and create a greener, healthier planet for generations to come.


One bottle is removed from the ocean.

Plastic pollution is a significant threat to marine life and ecosystems, causing harm to wildlife through ingestion and entanglement. By recycling plastic waste from the ocean, we're preventing further damage to marine habitats and reducing the amount of plastic entering our oceans. Together, we're making a positive impact on marine conservation efforts and working towards cleaner, healthier oceans for all. 


1 kg of carbon is offset.

Carbon offsetting involves supporting projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, such as renewable energy initiatives or reforestation projects. By offsetting carbon, we're taking tangible steps towards mitigating the effects of climate change, preserving our planet's delicate balance, and safeguarding the future of our environment and communities.

Sustainability Everyday

As a small handmade business, we have our hands on every aspect of the process. This gives us the opportunity to identify different ways, small and large, to lessen our impact at all intersections of our business. Whether we're eliminating plastic from the life cycle of our products or using every last scrap of leather we buy, we're always hunting for ways to be more earth-friendly.

Reducing leather waste

Step into our Texas studio, and you'll witness the transformation of leather scraps into stunning jewelry hangers and earring cards for studs. We believe in making the most of every inch of material, turning remnants into functional, stylish pieces that echo our commitment to a waste-free approach.

eco friendly packaging

Gone are the days of plastic bags -- our products find their home in biodegradable and compostable glassine packaging, minimizing the environmental impact. We have also removed all plastic from our shipping materials. It's a small yet impactful step towards reducing the carbon footprint of our products.

Shopping Local

Choosing Son of a Sailor means you're not just investing in quality accessories; you're supporting local artisans and embracing a more sustainable, ethical way of consumption. It's a conscious choice that reverberates beyond fashion, creating a positive ripple effect for our community and the planet.
