As conscious consumers, it can be difficult to always make sustainable choices. Finding ethical brands can be tough going, but it is very rewarding when you find a good one. Enter Disc Brand Co., whose everyday carry pieces are ethically produced. The San Francisco-based brand has just launched a Kickstarter campaign for their new sustainable wallet, the Disc Hero Wallet. This follows on from the successful launches of their Passport Wallet and Disc Wallet.
Disc Hero Wallet
Like the brand’s other designs, the Disc Hero Wallet is a beautiful slim piece that’s not short on functional features. It can hold cash in the main compartment, while a separate front pocket allows for quick access to your most used card, and a back pocket securely holds your other cards. Crafted from premium Italian vegetable tanned leather, the wallet is eco-friendly and recyclable. It’s available in two iterations; a deep red shade with a heart shape, or a rich blue with a star shape. Being made from 100% natural leather, both colours will grow to be more complex over time, developing a unique patina and distinct markings.
Disc Brand Co.
Disc Brand Co. extends their sustainabile practices by manufacturing their products locally, providing jobs to craftspeople in San Francisco. The brand works with the SFMade organisation, which seeks to boost the manufacturing industry in the city, allowing local businesses to grow and create new employment opportunities.
Impressively, the brand has also committed to donating $1 from every purchase of the Disc Hero Wallet to the Make A Wish Foundation and the Cancer Society. This is in a bid to affect a positive change in society through something as simple as buying a new wallet.
To cap off all these pros, the Disc Hero Wallet is available for pre-order for only USD$19, which is a veritable bargain for a wallet of its quality. Head over to Kickstarter to take advantage of the limited time offers.
