History

Bangledox was founded by Latina entrepreneur and environmentalist Marta Mele'cio, whose experience echoes many other entrepreneurs' beginningsafter losing her corporate job, she knew that whatever venture she started had to follow her beliefs in helping preserve the planets natural resources and not pollute them with harsh or toxic chemicals.

Bangledox Eco-Friendly Clothing - Worldwide Dinky mascot was later introduced. The company's first product was based on the "recycle" logo design.

The company's goal is "To spread the word on the environmental concerns and informing you of what you can do on your part to help preserve the planet's natural resources through our tips and resources pages". The idea is to make the public aware of the harmfulness of chemicals and synthetic dyes to the environment and thus the importance of resorting to eco-friendly clothing.
