Animal behavior's garments are produced using surplus materials, creating a second life for these left over fabrics. In order to counter the environmental impact of shipping, they donate to carbon offset programs for every shipment sent. Every component of animal behavior's garments, from their buttons to their labels, are made within a 10 mile radius of downtown Los Angeles. With every purchase made, animal behavior donates 5% to nature conservation in hopes of reversing the Amur Leopard's endangerment and extinction.
