The story behind the brand

Get in touch

White Ladle was created out of a NEED. I saw a need for products that are durable, do what you expect them to, and most of all, are kind to the earth. So I filled the gap by creating a line of sustainable kitchen goods that you can feel good about using in your green home.⁣

Our guiding principles

ethical manufacturing

Just as critical as the materials in our products are the people who made them. We are committed to creating products that have a positive impact; not just for the consumer, and not just on the earth, but on the quality of life of the workers who created them. We accomplish this by partnering with factories that hold the highest standards for facilities and personnel, with the third-party certifications to back it up.
