Our Ethos
Kind to the Planet. Kind to Each Other.

We will never claim to be perfect, but we are constantly striving to be as sustainable as possible. We strongly believe that it is our responsibility to do what is right for our planet.

Our Sustainability Framework is based on 3 pillars:

Is it Compostable/Natural?

This is important because it means it breaks down within a relatively short period of time 90 - 180 days, going back to nature as nature intended and not filling up landfills.

Is it Recycled/Recyclable?

Using recycled content or recyclable materials increases the lifespan of the products/materials and also reduces the amount of waste going to landfills and the resources spent on generating new materials.

Is it Reusable?

Increasing the lifespan of a product inherently reduces waste and resources.

"We are on a mission to set a new paradigm of sustainability in fashion. It takes time, it costs more, but its the right thing to do."

- Astrid Unwalla, Founder & CEO

THE NOOD WAY.

Our signature Hemp fabric that is used in our Game Changer Bra and Shape Tape is one of the most sustainable fabrics in the world. Not only does it use 5x less (or more!) water than cotton, it doesn't require any pesticides to grow, has twice the yield per acre as cotton, and enriches the soil it grows in.

Our No-Show Nipple Covers unlike traditional nipple covers are plastic-free. They are made of a single layer of ergonomic medical grade rubber silicone that lasts our average customer 6 months even with daily wear vs normal nipple covers (silicone gel in between 2 plastic sheets) that only last 4-5 wears. Additionally, when worn together with our Game Change Bra or Shape Tape, you can keep wearing them long after the adhesive has worn off.

We see plastic as the main threat and polluter to the environment today, and are proud to say that we are almost entirely 100% plastic-free. All of our mailer bags are from Grounded Packaging and certified compostable. Our ecommerce boxes are made from recycled content and 100% recyclable. Our tissue paper and stickers are from NoIssue and use recycled materials, and natural toxic free dyes and adhesives. All of our product packaging is paper based, with recycled content and fully recyclable.

It’s no secret that breast cancer is the most common type of cancer diagnosed in women. But what many people don’t know is that there are over 2700 cases of invasive breast cancer expected to be diagnosed in men in the US this year alone. So if ever there was a reason to nag the men in your life, this is it.

Know it’s Ok to Ask Questions. Receiving a breast cancer diagnosis is overwhelming at any age. For younger women, there may be some unique challenges to consider, including fertility or other areas of reproductive health.
When we sat around the table brainstorming ideas for a campaign to celebrate our 1st birthday and International Women's Day, we reflected on the year that had gone by. It certainly has been a crazy ride. One of us sighed under her breath and said, "honestly, women are strong as fuck".

 In 2021 alone, an estimated 281,550 new cases of invasive breast cancer will be diagnosed in women in the U.S. as well as 49,290 new cases of non-invasive breast cancer.

As we move past the seemingly endless hum that has been January, it is time to take 2022 by the tatas and start advocating for your health. Wondering where to start? Pick up the phone and call your mom.
