VERIFIED business since Apr 2015
STATE is a Brooklyn-based company that is all about the one accessory that defines urban life: the backpack. For busy, style-savvy city dwellers, it’s a lifestyle declaration of being on the move and ready to take on whatever the day has in store. And for kids, it’s a necessity that takes them from home to school each day, carrying everything they need to thrive. STATE is the first brand to offer the high style and quality customers want while supporting kids growing up in America’s most under-funded, volatile neighborhoods. STATE – one of the first companies in New York to achieve benefit corporation status – is upping the ante on the “buy one, give one” model with a re-imagined, long-term approach.
Because of the founder's deep background in serving kids in underfunded neighborhoods here in the US, our committment is in our own backyard. STATE is rolling out its GiveBackPack program across the US, but has heavily focused on turbulent neighborhoods in Brooklyn, New York - where the company began and is still based.
One ritual that new hires partake in is reciting how they are going to live by STATE's 6 core values...in 14 seconds (just enough time to fit it into an Instagram video)!
