Who We Are
Freon Collective is a low-waste lifestyle brand crafted with small-batch production practices in Toronto, Ontario Canada. All products are handmade by us in our studio located in the Leslieville neighbourhood. Our brand was born in 2019 with a goal to provide reusable products as an alternative to disposable ones.
Our Commitment to Sustainability
All of our cotton rounds, face cloths, and scrunchies are made with 100% organic cotton. We produce minimal textile waste by using all materials to their fullest potential, and where we can't use materials, we make sure to repurpose by donating our scraps to local textile programs.
We are conscious of the ecological footprint that shipping products causes and that is why we use compostable shipping mailers and ensure all of our packaging is recyclable and/or reusable.
Supporting the Community
As a BIPOC woman-owned business, we are committed to supporting programs that support women, such as donating a portion of our WOMAN SERIES sales to Nellie's Shelter. Their mission is to operate programs and services for women and children who have and are experiencing oppressions such as violence, poverty and homelessness.
In addition to Nellie's Shelter, we have also been able to donate a portion of our sales to The 519, Black Women in Motion, Nia Centre for the Arts, and The Legacy of Hope Foundation with the support of our wonderful customers!
