Founded in 2002, The Wallaroo hat company is dedicated to quality craftsmanship in functional and fashionable hat designs - adjustable, packable and comfortable.
Inspired by trips to her husband’s family in Australia, Stephanie Carter, founder and CEO, wanted to share her understanding of sun exposure and the threat of skin cancer far and wide. This transpired into developing a range of UPF protection hats to suit. From inception to now we are dedicated to fulfilling this mission.
Business with purpose is a mighty goal – here is how we do it:
Our mission from inception has been to help eliminate the threat of skin cancer through information and prevention. As a leader in the sun-protective hat industry, Wallaroo takes this health threat very seriously. Our hats are tested and rated according to the UV radiation blocking capabilities (UPF - Ultraviolet Protection Factor) of the materials used in the construction of each hat. We advise our customers to read the product description to determine if the UPF rating of the hat suits your individual sun protection needs. Our dedication to this effort is the driving force behind both the design of our hats and our involvement and contribution to philanthropic efforts within the community.
There is greater strength in numbers. The Wallaroo Hat Company believes that we can more powerfully change the world for the better when our efforts are combined with those of like-minded companies. In 2014, Wallaroo Hat Company joined the ranks as a Certified B Corporation®. We invested significant time and energy into improving our organisation to meet nonprofit B Lab’s rigorous standards of social and environmental performance, accountability, and transparency.
Finally, we wouldn’t be where we are today without our amazing team. We take pride in creating an environment where our employees feel vested in their jobs and are happy to come to work each day.
Thank you for helping us to continue these efforts by supporting Wallaroo Hat Company. As we like to say, “It’s a Sunny Life. Wear Your Hat.”
