Making an Impact

Since inception, we truly care about doing good in this world & finding ways to give back.

 In fact - it’s our #1 passion and what drives us to take bold steps in our business. 

When it comes to making positive and impactful changes in our environment and for generations to come, we go the extra mile. 

We are proud partners with Dollar Donation Club, the world’s first collective philanthropy platform, and +Purpose . Both innovative companies made giving back and doing good easier than ever. 

Through Dollar Donation Club, with every Mela purchase, $1 is donated to the Plastic Fischer initiative to remove ocean-bound plastic as well as to plant trees through Trees for the Future initiative.

With every Mela purchase, +Purpose gives our shoppers  the choice to receive 10% back when investing in one of these worthy causes ; Trufund with a 70% impact score in eradicating poverty in underserved communities as well as Fooddirect with an impact score of 100% in eliminating hunger in Africa. 

Our work environment & Carbon footprint

Our Italian vegan leather goods are handmade by talented artisans in Florence, Tuscany in a small family-owned factory that’s been in business for 45 years. Carbon footprint is a big deal to us — so prioritizing our environment always comes first. As a Peta approved brand, we’re proud to say that our MelaTex factory  is right down the road from our manufacturer helping us reach our carbon footprint goals. In addition, our factory relies on renewable energy.
