Kin Community is a multi-platform digital media company based in Santa Monica, and paving the way in women’s lifestyle. Kin owns and operates Kin Community -a women’s multi-channel platform on YouTube, Kin Studios, and a portfolio of brands including; Entertaining with Beth, SeaLemon DIY, Welcome to Sanditon, Emma Approved and the Emmy-award winning Lizzie Bennet Diaries.

Kin is one of the first tech Santa Monica-based businesses to achieve Green Certification. Kin goes the extra green mile to conserve water by retrofitting their four restroom faucets with high-efficiency aerators emitting only half gallon of water per minute.

To preserve materials, Kin always reuses event decorations and props. The office kitchen is stocked with reusable dishware for staff use. Employees re-fill reusable containers at the onsite water filter installed at the sink. Limited bottled water is purchased only for guests on the go. To close the recycling loop, Kin switched to printing paper containing 100% post-consumer recycled materials. Clearly labeled recycling containers are found facility wide.

Kin does an exceptional job of procuring with Sustainability in mind. Green cleaners used throughout the office include Mrs Meyers multi-purpose and Method dish soap. Re-furbished print cartridges are purchasing from Staples Sustainable Earth product line. Employees are encouraged to carpool, walk or bike to work to support Sustainable Santa Monica’s goals.
