What does “Handcrafted” mean?

Handcrafted means each Connect Cord has been envisioned, sourced, and put together by our founder and team with love. All vibrant colorful Connect Cords are specifically and individually custom designed with great care by our founder.

What does “Slow Fashion” mean to The Bright Lights?

We are thrilled to join the movement to be more intentional in the way we produce/consume—emphasizing more ethical practices, handcrafting, less waste and lower carbon footprints. All our Connect Cords are sourced with care and handcrafted by a team who is invested in the process as partners. We not engage in any outsourcing of our Connect Cords so we can ensure our labor hours are fair and ethical since we’re the ones creating them :). Because our products are handcrafted we also can reduce any waste and we chose our shipping company with intent in part because they are committed to carbon neutral shipping that will not tax our environment.

How did you choose the nonprofits the Connect Cords benefit/The Bright Lights partners? Can I suggest a different nonprofit?

We choose each nonprofit with deliberate intention considering their reputation, mission and effectiveness in who they serve.

Yes! We deeply value the heart and insights of each person in this community. And while we recognize we won’t be able to represent every nonprofit or people group, we love your feedback, desire to invest in things you care about, value learning from and growing together!
