GUIDING PRINCIPLES:

Four guiding principles are central to turning Bob’s ideals into actions at The House of Marley: Superior Quality, Sustainably Sourced, Cause Minded and Waste Conscious.

Superior Quality: Bob was a master at his craft and The House of Marley aims for the same excellence in everything it creates. MARLEY products aim for authenticity and you can hear it in every instrument and vocal. MARLEY products are made to withstand even the most active lifestyle and to emulate Bob – timeless.

Sustainably Sourced: The House of Marley’s goal is to create high-quality products in the most ethical and environmentally positive way. MARLEY audio products are made with FSC certified wood and use, recycled and recyclable aluminium and plastic.

Cause Minded: A portion of proceeds from The House of Marley will benefit 1Love.org. The organisation, sparked by the Marley family, is dedicated to spreading Bob Marley’s message of unity and peace by lifting up a new generation of “young gongs” to strike the hammer for charities, causes and ideas that can change the world with a focus on youth, planet and peace. Learn more at 1Love.org.

Waste Conscious: The House of Marley creates eco-conscious products that aim to be sustainable, renewable and recyclable. Each MARLEY product is packaged using pulp or recycled and recyclable material, so it can avoid the waste stream and manifest into something useful again. In addition, MARLEY ear buds and headphones come with storage bags made from natural fibres, such as cotton and hemp.
