Is it possible to make the best products on the planet and tackle the challenges of the clothing industry in the process?
The Greenhouse is our way of bringing to life new products made with purpose and principles. We’re planting the seeds of change, and asking you to help them grow. If you like what you see, fund the first run of production and get first dibs at a handsome discount. Think of it as a vote for a better way of doing things.
WHAT IS THE GREENHOUSE?
The greenhouse is a testing ground for new products that are designed with purpose and built on principles that put people and the planet first. We’re reinventing closet staples to offer you options that do less harm and get better with time. We offer you the chance to support the products that you want to see come to life, and we thank you for pre-ordering with a 10% discount. Not everything makes it out of the greenhouse alive, so if you like what you see, you can support it by placing your order and spreading the word.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
Each month we plant a new collection in the greenhouse. Customers can vote for the products that they want by pre-ordering at a 10% discount. Each product has a funding goal for a very a limited first run, and if we reach our goal within four weeks it goes into production. Otherwise your money is refunded and it’s back to the drawing board.
WHAT’S THE POINT?
The clothing industry is one of the dirtiest businesses in the world. We’re betting that, all else being equal, most people would take a piece of clothing that’s made responsibly over one that degrades the planet or hurts workers. On our part, we’re working hard to create great products that never compromise. If you’re on board, you can join Sitka’s mission to leave it better than we found it by supporting the products you find in the greenhouse. By offering new products for pre-sale, we can reduce our waste and give our customers more of what they really want. This also allows us to share a few side benefits with our Sitka family. Each new collection that hits the greenhouse is offered on a very limited first run. By pre-ordering, you can help make sure that the products that you love hit the stores. Plus you’ll get a discount and lock in your order before we sell out.
HOW LONG DOES A COLLECTION LAST IN THE GREENHOUSE?
Once a collection hits the greenhouse it has four weeks to reach its funding goal. That means you’ll have four weeks to place your pre-order before it’s too late.
WHEN WILL I BE BILLED FOR MY ORDER?
You’ll be charged for your your order at the time you place it. In the case that a product doesn’t reach it’s funding goal and does not go to production we’ll refund your full purchase at that time.
CAN I STILL RECEIVE MY ORDER IF A PRODUCT DOESN'T REACH ITS FUNDING GOAL?
If a product doesn’t make it to production we’ll get in touch with you after the funding period to offer you a refund. In some cases, we may still manufacture the product, in which case you’ll still be able to receive your order.
CAN I GET A REFUND?
Orders for any product that doesn’t make it to production will be fully refunded. If you change your mind before the funding period is over, you can contact us to request a refund. Once a product goes to production, you’ll have to wait until you receive your order. From there you can follow our regular 30 day return policy.
WHEN WILL MY ORDER BE DELIVERED?
Once the pre-order period for a collection wraps up, we strive to deliver all orders within two months or less. We’ll give you an estimated shipping date and keep you in the loop when we’re in production. If there are any delays in manufacturing you’ll be the first to know.
CAN I STILL ORDER A PRODUCT FROM THE GREENHOUSE IF I MISSED THE PRE-SALE?
If a product is funded, you’ll be able to purchase it at full retail price once it hits the store, typically a couple months down the road. Keep in mind that these collections are limited edition, so we can’t guarantee that a product won’t sell out. To avoid missing out, you can subscribe to our emails to be the first to know when a new product is available.
