Statement On Sustainability

handcrafted walking sticks

As the national leader in the area of Made In USA, handcrafted walking sticks and canes, Brazos Walking Sticks recognizes its responsibility to conduct its operations in a way that cares for, nurtures, protects, and improves the environment for current and future generations.

Brazos Walking Sticks understands that, as stewards of our Providence-given resources, we must conduct business in a way that is ethical, prudent, and forward-thinking. Since our inception nearly 20 years ago, we have worked with those goals in mind — all within a context of complete sustainability.

To those ends we promote production methods that focus on conservation of materials, efficient energy use, waste reduction, and environmental replenishment.

With regard to the harvesting of domestic woods, Brazos Walking Sticks practices renewable collection practices which focus on targeting dense areas of private forestry with an over-abundance of competitive saplings. Competitive saplings are young trees that spring up on an annual basis, taking resources from established flora within their ecosystems. The harvesting of competitive saplings is a boon to the natural environment in which they exist.

Exotic wood is procured through fair trade practices from reputable companies whose environmental ethic is similar to our own. Brazos Walking Sticks will not work with companies who engage in questionable business practices or suspect sustainability measures.

In summary, Brazos Walking Sticks seeks to produce premium handcrafted walking sticks and canes using the most sustainable options available. Our commitment to sustainability parallels our unwavering commitment to craftsmanship.
