When Bodyartforms came about in 2001, it wasn't just a company to us. It was a chance to do something that we love, and to do it in a way that made us proud of what we do. It's a rarity even in this day and age to see a company run by two women. This company is more than family-owned, it's sister-owned.
We started Bodyartforms in our living room, packing the orders ourselves, and programming the site ourselves too. Thirteen years later and we have way too many employees for a living room. We just recently settled into a 9100 square foot facility in Georgetown, Texas, and we love it. It's a great place. It's our second home.
Since we founded our business here on planet Earth, we think it's a good idea to take care of the place as best we can. That's why we offer a range of environmentally friendly checkout options, like the choice to use as few plastic baggies as possible. That's also why our bubble wrap and packing peanuts are biodegradable.
When you're on the checkout page, you'll also spot our charity donation options. When you give to the charities at checkout, Bodyartforms matches what you give 100%. We support places like the Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee (View the elecam at http://www.elephants.com/elecam/), the ASPCA, the Austin Humane Society, St. Jude's Children's Hospital, and many more. These are charities we feel strongly about.
We believe in careers, too. That's why all of our employees earn a living wage. That's a fancy term that means someone working full-time should be able to afford quality of life. We provide 100% healthcare insurance for our full time employees, along with vacation and 401K packages.
When we're not at work, a big part of choosing where we spend our money is whether we're comfortable supporting a company. Do we agree with what they do, and how they treat their employees and the planet? If not, we'll take our business elsewhere. This page is about who we are, where we came from, and what we believe in.
Bodyartforms isn't just a company, it's something we're proud to be a part of. And when you shop with us, you're a part of it too.
