Sustain is about connecting the dots. We make sexual wellness products because they play a role in almost every challenge we face in the world. They’re uniquely connected to just about everything.

Have you ever taken a minute to really think about condoms? It’s incredible how much trust we put in something so small. We rely on them to protect us from HIV, other STDs, and unwanted pregnancy. That’s huge. Imagine life without them—beyond disease, think of the impact all of those extra bodies would have on our world. And yet how much does anyone really know about these things we’re all trusting so fiercely? Very little. Like all of the products we depend on—especially disposable ones used so quickly in the heat of the moment—we rarely consider where they come from.

So we’ve thought about it for you and made a more sustainable condom. They’re Fair Trade and vegan (read about our many certifications here). We, by the way, are a father-daughter team—not exactly your typical family business—with deep roots in sustainability. Every consumer product from t-shirts to iPhones to coffee has a sordid story of materials, employees, and manufacturing behind it. Turns out the humble condom’s history has involved both child labor and environmental destruction. We’re here to offer an alternative.

Now that you know all of this, you can get back to doing what comes naturally.
