Ungalli Joggers Are Officially Funded on Kickstarter!

As of July 5th 2017, Ungalli Joggers are officially funded!!! We're seriously jumping for joy over here :D! Our MOST sincere thanks to all of you for helping to bring this project to life.

 

In celebration of the campaigns success we are doing a giveaway of our most popular Kickstarter package, so keep an eye on our social media channels for your chance to win! Is there an easier way to check people off your Christmas list?! 

As a reminder, here is what to expect over the next 2-3 weeks if you backed our project.

Whats Next?

Over the next 2-3 weeks you will be receiving a survey from Ungalli through Kickstarter. Please keep an eye on the inbox of the email you used to make your pledge!

First we will be sending out surveys to anyone who ordered a wholesale/business/retail package as these orders take us the longest to process. We'll ask you for your logo/artwork, your size breakdown, and if you want to do men's, women's, unisex, or any combination of the 3.

Next (about 2 weeks later) we will be sending a survey to anyone who ordered an individual package (most of you). This survey will ask you for your shipping information and sizes. We will also be posting size charts on our website for you to refer too. The individual surveys will likely come in about 2 weeks time, so don't panic if you don't get it right away!

Please respond to your surveys as quickly as possible so we can get started on production. The faster you get back to us, the faster we can get your joggers to you! Expect your packages to arrive in October!

If you didn't get a chance to back our campaign, no problem! Joggers will be available for pre-order in August, and available online for purchase in October. 

Thanks again for believing in Ungalli, and for being a part of the sustainable fashion movement <3.

You Need Ungalli Joggers. Here's Why.

You know you want them. Here's why you need them.

Our Fans Helped Design Them
We’ve always had awesome options for sustainable shirts – tees, tanks, crops, hoodies, crewnecks and now kids (some of which you can snag in our Kickstarter packages!) But our fans kept asking for an option for pants. So you asked and we listened! Now we’re bringing Ungalli Joggers to you through our Kickstarter campaign.

Fashion + Comfort = F*** yeah!
We all have those days when the very idea of pants seems like too much work, but you’ve also got tons of real work to do.

Ungalli Joggers are the best of both worlds. Tapered at the bottom with a subtle Ungalli logo (which we think looks pretty sweet), they’re made of high-quality French Terry Knit. Read: they’re fashionable. No need to rock threadbare fast fashion tights or your old baggy Joggers with the not-so-subtle holes.

#MadeinCanada
We absolutely love the President Obama quote, “The world needs more Canada.” That’s why our Joggers were designed in Canada and will be manufactured in Canada, at a Toronto factory that pays fair wages.

With #Canada150 coming up, what better way to celebrate than a homegrown product? They’ll be perfect for nights camping at Canada’s National Parks next year! But even if you’re not from our Home and Native Land, you can own a piece of it with Ungalli Joggers…because the world really does need more Canada!

Already bought Joggers and want even more Canuck products? Check out our wholesale and retail packages for your business or store

For the Earth
Because our Joggers are made in Canada, our carbon footprint is reduced. Plus, they’re made of recycled water bottles and organic cotton. To sum it up, one pair of Ungalli Joggers will save: 110 days of drinking water, eight plastic bottles from the landfill, and one whole day of light bulb energy. Thanks to our friends at Green Story for helping us calculate how our Joggers are helping reduce the environmental impact shopping has on our planet.

See how your positive impact increases with each pledge here.

Ship Just In Time
Admit it: every year you resolve you’re not going to leave your Holiday shopping until the last minute…and then of course you do. And it’s Christmas Eve, and you’re running through the mall, grabbing the last scratchy sweater in a size too small for your sweetheart…and hoping they don’t break up with you and take the dog…

OK maybe that’s a *bit* far, but wouldn’t it be nice to get started early for once? With an estimated October 2017 delivery date, you can snag the His + Hers Joggers package for just TK, so you can rock yours once the cooler weather hits and surprise him or her come Christmas. Plus, they’ll probably be stealing yours anyways, so at that point you’ll just be happy to have them back. Win-win!

Check out our Kickstarter today – every pledge helps! Thanks so much for all the Ungalli love.

Kickstarter FAQs

Kickstarter FAQ: Ungalli Co-Founders Hailey & Bree answer the top questions we’ve received about Kickstarter.

What is Kickstarter?

We were surprised to learn that some our fans hadn’t heard about Kickstarter! Kickstarter is a platform that allows creators like us to fund a project. Backers agree to a certain financial commitment for a specific reward (check out all of our options here!); they’re only charged if the project hits its goal. See more about what Kickstarter’s all about here.

Why Joggers?

You asked and we listened! We’ve always had organic and recycled options for tops. But we kept getting requests for comfortable, stylish and sustainable pants, which we didn’t have. We decided to develop our joggers with our fans in mind and poll them on colours and style. We got some helpful feedback that gave us fantastic direction- thanks guys!

Why Use Kickstarter?

Adding a whole new product line is a big undertaking in financial and manufacturing terms. It's a very significant move for Ungalli. Taking a Kickstarter approach allows us to expand with the help of our community, friends, customers, and network, while delivering on current offers and products. Plus, it brings you behind-the-scenes of what we do – and we’re all about peeling back the curtain if it helps change the fast fashion industry.

What happens if you don’t reach your target?

Our target is $60,000 to be raised between May 30, 2017 and July 5, 2017. Kickstarter is all or nothing, so it’s super important that we reach our goal! If we don’t make it, our backers won’t be charged. 

How will the dollars raised be used?

The dollars we raise will be used to meet minimum orders at the amazing Canadian factory that supports sustainable fabrics and initiatives. The Kickstarter will also help Ungalli bring our message to the national and global stage.

What is Green Story?

Green Story is a fantastic Ungalli partner and sustainable startup out of Toronto. Green Story helps to qualify the positive impact of green products over conventional products. We love working with their team to tell the story around the positive impact that shopping sustainable has on the earth.

Where will these joggers be sold?

At the moment, Ungalli joggers are ONLY sold online through Kickstarter.

How sustainable are the joggers?

Our joggers, like all Ungalli products, are one of the most truly sustainable fashion offers available on the market. They’re made from recycled and organic materials in a local factory where workers are paid fair wages.

I’m looking for branded t-shirts, where can I send questions?

We have awesome brandable packages for businesses, unions and organizations at great deals in our Kickstarter. Reach out to us at Hailey@ungalli.com and we can answer any questions about logo placement and opportunities.

I sell eco-products, do you do wholesale?

Absolutely! We have a number of wholesale packages in our Kickstarter. We would be happy to answer any questions you have about the designs and how we can outfit your team in Ungalli. Please reach out!

What does Ungalli mean?

When we were little, our mom used to read us “The Name of the Tree” almost every night. The story is about all the animals working together for the greater good. To us, this demonstrates that no matter how limited we are in terms of resources, we can accomplish great things when we band together. This is the story of our namesake, and a big part of why we’re hoping to reach our Kickstarter goal!

We've got some news for you!

As you all know, since our launch in 2013, we've been focused on Recycled and Organic Tees, Tanks, Hoodies, Crew Necks, Hats and Accessories. Sustainable style up top? Check. 

But on social media, through email, and in person, we kept hearing that you wanted an option for pants, too. You asked, and we listened. And what better way to design great clothing than to ask the stylish people who are going to wear it?

We held a vote, asking you, our Thunder Bay and National fans about style...

colour...

and logo placement...

After almost 500 votes, a clear winner emerged. We're so excited to show you the new Ungalli Joggers - but we still need your help.

In order to start production, we need $60,000, so we launched a Kickstarter to help bring you the sustainable style you've been looking for. Our Joggers Campaign launches today - and we've got some awesome rewards, plus great deals on our retail and wholesale packages, available only through our Kickstarter.

They say the early bird catches the worm...but in our case the early bird gets a free hat! Head to our Kickstarter page today to see our Early Bird deal. 

Thank you guys so much for all of your support. It means the world to us!

Happy Earth Day! 3 Ways to Celebrate

It’s #EarthDay2017! It’s been a busy Earth Month for Ungalli.

We headed to Experiences Canada 150&Me to talk about sustainability with some inspiring teens, launched our full line of gemstone bracelets that help feed hungry kids, and now we’re expanding our amazing sales team at our Intercity store.

With everything going on, Earth Day is the perfect time to take a pause and remind ourselves why we do what we do every day – and what else we all can all do to help the planet.

We’ve rounded up three fun ways to celebrate Earth Day – today and 365.

Plant Flowers, or Some Food
We love gardening. It’s a great way to get your hands dirty and reconnect to the Earth.

Flowers are fun, but better yet: grow your own vegetables and herbs. It’s a way for you to reduce your ecological footprint by increasing the amount of local produce you eat. Plus, what’s better than eating fresh food right off the vine?

If you don’t have a Green Thumb, here’s a great guide of the easiest veggies to grow.

Go For a Bike Ride
It’s shaping up to be a gorgeous day here in Thunder Bay. Wherever you are, consider ditching the car to head out on a bike ride.

Wind in your face…better for the planet…good exercise for you…win, win, win.

Shop Sustainable
From saving water and energy to helping feed kids and rescuing animals in need, we’ve been advocates of helping in any way we can since the beginning.

This March, we rounded up some amazing sustainable brands (run by strong females, of course) for International Women’s Day. Consider checking them out.

Of course, we’ve still got 25% off everything online until the end of April. Use promo code EARTHMONTH.

How are you guys spending Earth Day? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
