On a Mission to Save our Oceans
CapTen, pronounced “Captain”, is a Canadian startup specialized in sustainable headwear and clothing. As indicated in our name, we donate 10% of our profits to a non-profit organisation committed to removing trash from our oceans. We’ve combined our passion for fashion and our desire for corporate responsibility to bring CapTen to life. We believe that nowadays companies must contribute to society before turning a profit. Indeed, we encourage others to support businesses who think alike.
A Timeless Accessory on a Mission
We wanted to offer a symbolic accessory that could be casually worn by literally anybody, no matter your gender or size. By wearing a CapTen hat, you support an important movement and help remove trash from our oceans.
Say Goodbye to Greenwashing
Unlike big companies who spend tons of money on ads to make you believe they care about the environment, we actually care about the future. From our website to our supply chain, we are constantly finding ways to improve our company’s sustainable efforts. Although we’re not perfect and there’s lots of work to be done, we think this is a heck of a good start.
Our headwear is designed with just the right combination of fabrics such as merino wool and cotton. This allows us to make soft, yet long-lasting hats and beanies we all appreciate.
Unknown to many, websites are powered by servers that consume tons of electricity. This very website is powered by a data center that gives back 3 times the energy it consumes in the form of renewable power.
We opted for minimalist packaging to avoid waste. As for the cardboard boxes used to ship orders, they are produced locally and are entirely recyclable.
We strive to make durable headwear that allows us to enjoy the great outdoors for generations to come.
The more crazy ideas, the merrier. We let our minds run free to create an inspiring community fuelled by our loved for nature.
We preach honesty amongst team members, with our suppliers and across our community. For example, you will always know what our products are made from and their origins.
CapTen was founded in 2018 by 3 university students. Through all of the ups and downs, our goal is to learn from this journey and raise awareness for our cause.
