Happiness Is

Happiness is something we all wish to have, but sometimes have trouble achieving.  Modern life contributes to our anxiety; it's busy, fast-paced, stressful, and full of doubt. At the age of 95 (not a typo!), with wisdom, reflection and passion, Gordon Carton founded Happiness Is Inc., as a way to inspire us to find our happiness within. He knew it's impossible to have a lifetime of happiness, but the gratitude we can have for what makes us smile, and the connections we share with the people around us, the happier we become.  And happiness is contagious.

We value ethical production and being able to connect directly with the manufacturing process. It makes us really happy knowing the craftspeople and businesses that we are supporting along the way. Keeping our carbon footprint low, and with ethical wages, all our clothing is knit, cut, sewn and dyed locally in Canada.

We love our planet and all the activities we do on it, so protecting it is essential. Of course, there are always trade-offs in utility or costs, but there are also trade-offs within better sustainable practices too. For now, we use biodegradable certified organic cotton (which uses less water and pesticides compared with conventional cotton) and bamboo. We also use recycled polyester where we need a little.
