Sourcing

To produce and deliver ethical products of the highest quality, Stay·Wild™ practices economic, environmental, and social sustainability.

Our entire stock is 100% handmade. We ensure an ethical and green supply chain that respects the environment in ways it can continue to flourish for generations to come. We purchase all of our fibers and beads from other small businesses and as many individual artisans as possible and make sure the ethics of their practices and sources are compliant with a fair-trade standard.

Happy Mango Beads

Happy Mango Beads is a company that personally imports all of their inventory from cultures across the world. The creators establish relationships with villagers and families all throughout Peru, Nepal, Indonesia, China, Ghana and Italy, purchasing beads at fair prices, donating clothes and shoes brought with them, and using their profits to pay for surgeries, houses, education, and food where needs are seen among the less developed countries visited and re-visited over the past 20 years. Many of the beads are recycled: the glass beads originated from bottles and the metal beads were melted from keys and silverware. In addition, all of Happy Mango Beads' processes are 100% eco-friendly, meaning their packaging materials are 100% recycled and recyclable, they are Cradle to Cradle SM certified, and they are continually expanding their warehouse and facility to engage in every possible practice to go-green.
