Every year, 2.12 billion tons of waste – the equivalent of 1.75 billion adult male cows – is dumped in landfill or in our water. Shockingly 99% of the stuff we buy is trashed within six months.
Plastic, the type used in disposable pens and cheap wallets, is a big culprit, with 8 million tons of it dumped in our oceans every year.
That’s why, since 2014, it’s been our mission to create exceptional everyday items – like pens and wallets – that will be cherished for decades, not months.
We want to grow Wingback into a 100-year-old company, a household name and celebration of quality materials and quality manufacturing.
We want our designs to be inherited by your grandkids in as good a condition as the day they were made.
And in this era of disposable culture and fast fashion, we want to challenge both small and large businesses to be more sustainable, responsible and transparent.
We know that starts with the actions we take as individuals and as a business.
Here’s what we’re doing to meet that commitment.
We're not done yet, we're at the start of our journey to become a fully carbon negative business, and we won’t stop until we get there.
