Act For Impact
The Origin Story
WHY… Recycling plastic saves twice as much energy as it takes to burn it. Choosing products like this made from recycled plastic helps to show demand for recycling plastic and hopefully longer term encourages more companies to do it.
The James Bond of sun hats, this hat features a hidden sun shield. The shield can be taken out of the brim to be used only when necessary. It has excellent UV protection 40+ and includes a small vent in the crown for air circulation. This hat is waterproof, can also float and is crushable for action adventure on the go! Plus it helps save the planet like Mr Bond himself as it is made of recycled plastic bottles.

Conner Hats statement on responsibility:-
If we can make hats in styles that people want to wear, and make them from responsible materials using responsible business practices all at a fair price, then perhaps people needing hats will choose us over companies purely driven by profit. A better scenario would be other companies seeing our success and adopting similar practices.
Our slogan “Responsibly Grown, Beautifully Made” means a lot more than just making a high quality hat from organic cotton; it begs us to keep asking the hard questions about every strata of our business model and to seek out solutions to lighten our social and environmental footprint, even if there aren’t yet precedent solutions in the quirky world of hat making.
WE REALIZE THAT EVERY PRODUCT MADE CAUSES ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT TO SOME DEGREE. IT IS OUR GOAL TO LIMIT THAT IMPACT.
It takes effort to understand exactly what we are doing on a deeper level. That is, committing time and resources to creating the most transparent picture of how Conner Hats impacts the world via material sourcing, design, production, and shipping, for example.
Changing whatever we can to reduce our footprint is never ending. We are passionate about this quest and we owe it to our children to help make the world a better place.
