Why is the camp free?
Because we believe that confidence is a right for ALL girls. And we're not fans of barriers.
What happens at camp?
We laugh. We cry. We sweat. We swim. We try new stuff. We succeed. We fail. We talk about hard stuff. We sing a little. We hug. We push our limits. Basically, we do things we thought we couldn't do and we talk about stuff that's been hard to talk about in a safe and non-judgemental place and we share stories and experiences and choose to rise together. Every camp is a little different because the girls who come each year make it what it is.
What are Girl in the Wild tanks and tees made from?
Hemp and organic cotton, baby. We decided at our inception that as a company rooted in both feminism and environmental stewardship, we could not in good conscience create a clothing line out of traditional chemical- and plastic-laden fabrics. Gross. We wanted our clothes to biodegrade.
At the moment, hemp is the most sustainable fabric. It doesn't require pesticides to produce (Insects and plants say Hallelujah!). It grows easily in most climates and is a super strong fibre that is also fully biodegradable. (Bam!).
We blend it with organic cotton—also pesticide-free—to create a soft, breathable, ultra comfy wearable.
Why aren't your clothes cheaper?
Because we paid a lot to do it right and respectfully. They’re not made overseas. And they’re not made of chemicals and plastics. Zero plastic content. They're also made to order. So we don't purchase in bulk. Plus, they're amazing—in quality and design. Literally infused with love.
They’re not cheap because the planet deserves a company that cares for it more than it cares for a deal. And they're not cheap because our Girl In The Wild camps are funded 100% by apparel sales. We want these experiences to be forever free. And for our clothes to be forever kind to Mother Nature. This costs money.
We also ascribe to the philosophy that less is more. Have a few really nice things that you love (our clothes are MEGA loveable) and buy less shit (like $15 Tees that are for sure toxic.)
Where is your fabric from?
Our tanks and tees are manufactured by Novel Supply Co. from North Vancouver, BC. This innovative urban adventure fashion house uses fabric supplied by a U.S.-based company with a China-based mill. The mill is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation which verifies and ensures they are following the code of labour practices.
Where are Girl in the Wild clothes manufactured?
In Vancouver, BC, Canada. #westcoastbestcoast (We may be biased).
What payment methods do you accept?
A whole bunch. PayPal is our payment vendor. So if PayPal accepts it, so do we.
Do you have apparel for men and women?
You bet! Our Tanks and Tees are purposefully gender neutral with a relaxed fit. Breathability, baby! Men and women both look fab in them. If you like your clothes a little more form fitting, go with a size down. If you like things comfy and airy, your regular size should do the trick.
How long until my new clothes are in my dresser drawer?
We ascribe to something called Slow Fashion. Our clothes are print-to-order because “fast fashion” is environmentally destructive in our opinion. We only print what people order, which means, less waste and a little more time between order and delivery.
If your order is marked “pre-order”, that means we don’t literally have the apparel from our manufacturer yet. So check your email. We’ll keep you updated.
Otherwise, depending on where you live and how efficient the postal service is, you can expect Girl In The Wild gear in your mailbox within 7-15 business days.
Either way, we'll send you an email after you order and keep you apprised of when your Girl In The Wild gear will arrive.
Tell me about the return policy?
We like happy people. So if you’re unhappy, email Kim directly at firstname.lastname@example.org We'll do our best to make it right.
Where are you located?
On a tiny island in the Pacific Ocean off the coast of British Columbia—Bowen Island. It’s paradise. Come adventure with us any time.
