Our core company values put the earth first.
We love spending time in nature just as much as we feel inspired to create costuming that reflects it. Our precious planet needs all the help She can get right now... we are committed to implementing practices that do the least harm to the environment and love to participate in causes that bring awareness to local and global solutions.
Recycle and Do No Harm
In Practicing reverence for all we try to abide by the following:
For Costumes creations we use recycled paper/cardboard when possible as well as buy used craft supplies, paints, wires and building materials.
About 75% of our purchased costumes and materials for making costumes are from thrift stores, vintage stores or were previously owned.
We love to use nature's own materials such as feathers, flowers, tree branches, shells and butterfly wings that are found laying around.
Cruelty free and biodegradable face paints and glitter.
Donating time/performances to local non-profits supporting the environment and animals.
Supporting and bringing awareness to small and large efforts in sustainability.
We love our furry (or scaly or feathered) friends!
Volunteering for the Humane Society's Volunteer appreciate party in 2017. This guy was very interested in the stilting bird of paradise outside his stall. All animals deserve a happy, healthy and protected life.
Global Green Spa Network's Film Initiative
In an effort to plant 1,000,000 trees in the South American rain forests by 2019, the Green Spa Network made a short film to inspire other spas to engage their Clientele to donate just $5 during their visit that would directly go to funding the tree planting costs. Symmetry's owner/operator Krysta created a costume just for the film and acted as the Gaia tree during the spa scene.
Global Summit for Climate Change 2018
Held in San Fransisco this year, the Global Climate Action Summit will bring leaders and people together from around the world to “Take Ambition to the Next Level.” Symmetry is honored to be part of the initiative by performing as a stilt walking tree over 5 days during various activities.
