A huge part in the founding of Incredible Socks was to have the opportunity to give back and help others. At the core of absolutely everything we do is a commitment to the planet and the people that live on it. Our goal is to create zero harm through every stage of our operation and to use every sale we make as an opportunity to help a friend in need - and we are serious.
To know that even one life has breathed easier because of what we do - that is to have succeeded!
To create meaningful, lasting impact, Incredible Socks work with some incredible organizations around the world who have a deep understanding of the people they serve and the help that is needed. We have been lucky enough to visit the organizations we support and know each one operates with passion, love, vision and integrity.
Our most important partner in our mission to give and make change is you!
Through every purchase, we (that's you and us) are helping our partners build a better tomorrow - whether that means helping break a vicious child sex slavery ring in Mumbai, India or giving a helping hand to a homeless teenager in the United States - we are taking a stand and committing to being involved. And with every purchase - so are you!
A portion of our sales will go to helping our amazing partners below.

BYE BYE CARBON.
Footprints are great.
In the sand. In the snow. In the mud. We love them. But carbon footprints are not our friend - and trust me, they’re not yours either! Unfortunately, carbon footprints exist quite simply because we do. Charging our phones, boiling the kettle, or simply breathing in and out.
Why worry about our carbon footprint?
Here’s the science part. The more carbon that’s in the atmosphere, the warmer the planet gets and the warmer the planet gets the faster our climate will change. And yup, climate change means the melting of the ice caps, rising sea levels, extreme weather events, droughts, floods, wildfires and all that really awful stuff will happen more and more.
We can all make small changes that will make big differences and we are so proud to say we are neutral! Carbon Neutral.
So that’s why we are a carbon neutral business - this means that for every tonne of carbon we emit as a business - from lightbulbs in our factory to transportation fuels as we get comfy socks to you - we’ll pay to take a tonne of carbon out of the atmosphere. We are doing this by purchasing credits from verified carbon emission partners who will offset our carbon by doing things like protecting trees that store carbon, building wind energy, and preventing harmful greenhouse gases from entering our atmosphere from landfills and farms.
All our partners and their projects are independently certified to internationally recognized standards.
See how you can make a small change and a big difference here.
We care about the people who make your Incredible Socks and are committed to ensuring those people work in clean, safe environments, are paid properly and work fair hours in excellent conditions.
Bamboo can be a very sustainable crop; a fast growing grass, it requires no fertiliser and self-regenerates from its own roots, so it doesn't need to be replanted. When compared to cotton cultivation, which requires large amounts of water, pesticides and labour, the advantages for the planet and you are pretty clear.
We hate plastic - so we don’t use it! All our packaging comes from recycled materials and is fully recyclable.
