OUR SUSTAINABILITY INITIATIVE
We are proud of the high-quality clothing we create and believe that the life of each of our garments should last beyond just one child. We want our ultra-comfy garments to be passed down into the hands of a new child, who will take it on adventures and create new memories that are full of play.
The PK RePlay program consists of 2 separate initiatives to ensure we are doing our part in preserving our precious earth.
THE PLAY CONTINUES WHEN ITS REPLAYED
Because the best thing we can do for the planet is cut down on consumption and get more use out of the clothing that has been well-loved. We are doing our part with the PK RePlay program by creating brand new products with unsellable well-worn Beans. We believe the quality of our custom fabrics goes beyond a single garment and can be repurposed into something that is new and one-of-kind.
To create the majority of our PK RePlay items, we work with jonnon, which is a Vancouver based company who works with sewers and artists who face barriers to employment, such as mental illness or physical disability. The rest of our Re-purposed Beans are actually made by our Founder and CEO, Traci Costa, herself!

In addition to offering this support, their programs address a skill shortage in the local manufacturing industry and contribute to the city’s zero waste goal by using repurposed fabric and crafting materials.
jonnon has demonstrated that the additional income as well as the supportive environment where the program participants are valued consistently has led to greater financial stability, improved health outcomes and an increased sense of social connectedness. Together these results benefit not only the individuals but also the community.
