Making a better world, one item at a time.

This is usually where you’ll find a mission statement or an elevator pitch. You’ll not see that here. And that’s because Lucky Lapin is not about brevity or tasty soundbites, but the length of things. I don’t want to say legacy or tradition, because the length of things is the flow created by an action, and is almost a living creation. Real impact, or length, includes all the things related to the what and why we do things, and the ripples from those actions. So what does that look like for Lucky Lapin?

For starters, it’s a sincere desire to make things better than they were a minute ago. We strive to make everything we create 95% or more from biodegradable or upcycled materials. We try to use natural fibers and avoid Forever Here materials like plastic and other non-recylable materials. We try to source things as much as possible from right here in Colorado, our local area, and use a considerable amount of donated material, whether that be industry refuse, or an upcycled item that can no longer fill its original purpose. The goal is to take as much material as we can out of the junk cycle and end our over- dependency on the local landfill and the ecologically and economically expensive products from overseas. Because we source locally, and produce locally, you can be sure that every dollar you spend benefits local people and communities as part of our natural flow. We live the concept of “charitable contributions” instead of writing it down as a mere line item on a financial statement for tax purposes.

Which leads to another big component- helping people. First, we source as much as possible from thrift stores that benefit local and national charities as well as garage sales. This, in conjunction with donated items, does two things: keeps your money in our communities instead of going overseas, and it allows us to make an automatic contribution to various non-profits that work hard to make those communities more pleasant places to live. Then, when we sell our products, we’re able to donate a full 10% of the retail price to other non-profits, because we keep our cost of goods low. This leads to the third part of this piece, which is providing a genuine, work-at-home type of opportunity for parents who want more out of their livelihood than making money to pay for daycare. Making a choice between a child and paying rent is a horrible predicament to be in, and while we can’t help everyone in that situation, we hope to expand and at least give a few this special opportunity to make a good wage doing what they love. Who knows? Maybe we’ll inspire other businesses to take a similar approach.

Lastly, we aim to make beautiful, high quality goods you’d be excited to wear and have around, give to your friends and loved ones, or use for special events like weddings, birthdays, bar/bat mitzvahs, quinceañeras, and other life celebrations. We are passionate about what we do, and want to ensure that you get a beautifully crafted item. You’ve worked hard for what you have, and we want to make sure you get a product that celebrates and rewards you! Integrity is one of the few things over which each of us has complete control. We make the most of it here at Lucky Lapin in order to foster the trust and reputation of a company that thinks beyond plastic bag recycling and really lives the concept of social responsibility.

Thank you for visiting Lucky Lapin. We sincerely wish you a beautiful day!
