My Pipers' Promise
Organic Fabrics Only
There are cotton fabrics – and then there's ours. Every My Pipers Boxer Short is 100% Oeko-Tex® 100 Standard certified, which means our kid's boxers are made in green facilities, using organic techniques, without harmful chemicals and with low impact to the environment. They are made entirely from GOTS-(Global Organic Textile Standard) certified organic fabrics, the world's most respected processing standard for organic materials resulting in a better choice for your skin and environment. See our certificates here. Sure, our boxers would cost a lot less if we didn't take social and environmental concerns into account, but we do, and the result is a lightweight, soft and tear-free product made to last years and bring smiles to children's faces.

Life Cycle of My Pipers
We are a slow fashion brand which means that our goods are designed and created with greater care and attention to the longevity of the product. Our best selling styles are intentionally seasonless to promote longer wear and less consumption. We pour our hearts into the details, the timeless color palettes we choose, and the hand drawn prints our children drew are all meant to transcend seasons and fleeting fashion trends.
It is our inherent commitment to quality and design that is the single most important thing we can do as a business to protect the environment. We strive to create apparel that will outlast its first, second, third (maybe even fourth) owner with elastic and sizes that are guaranteed to grow with your kids. Because our clothing is so thoughtfully created and everlasting, we encourage customers to pass down pieces once their children outgrow them. Nothing brings us more joy than to see our boxers get handed down from sibling to sibling, to friend, to neighbor, to the next lucky child. My Pipers aims for quality not quantity and these high standards make each piece made to last and kept out of landfills (85 percent of the textiles in the US are either burned or end up in landfills)! Pass em' down!
Doing Our Part
As a business that ships goods, we require a lot of stuff to get our products into the hands of consumers and we want to do so by leaving a positive footprint on the world. To manage this impact, we have been adamant about reducing physical waste by mindfully shipping our products with minimal packaging. We have requested all of our manufacturers send our complete orders in bulk without individually wrapping each piece in plastic bags as is the usual norm. Our consumer packaging boxes are plastic-free and made from paper certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. Currently, sticker adhesive is not recyclable, but we are excited to keep exploring better options and we are proud of the companies making it easy for us to make the switch. Our new poly mailers are 100% compostable made with cornstarch which break down into carbon dioxide, water, and organic fertilizer. While sustainable packaging and company as a whole is something we are very proud of, there is still so much more to do for sustainability in fashion, and we can be a planet-first pioneer changing the clothing industry for the better.
