You may think, I’m just one person, what difference can I really make? Watch the story of Mother Teresa if you really need to be inspired by how big your small voice can be. As a business owner, you have the privilege of partnering commerce with cause and really making sustainable change in the developing world. When you shift to ethical manufacturing through THR3EFOLD here are just a few of the many ways your brand can change the world.
1 | Women’s Empowerment
There are many women in the developing world who are still not allowed to work or be educated. Many of our factories employ primarily women.
2 | Fight Sex Trafficking
THR3EFOLD works with some factories that exclusively provide jobs for women rescued out of sex trafficking. In addition to vocational training and job provision, the women also receive counseling, life skill and financial planning classes, and in some cases even housing.
3 | Rural Economic Development
Leave the cities and go be an advocate for bringing jobs to the small tribal towns who often have no opportunity.
4 | Revitalize dying artisan work
Be inspired by some supremely high craftsmanship that you can partner to save.
5 | Instill value on quality garment production
Use your brand message to educate your customers on the massive skill & labor that goes into each product they purchase.
6 | Set industry transparency standards
Be bold! Tell your customers where you manufacture, how you manufacture, the certifications you manufacture under. You can even go as far as Everlane and give your cost breakdown. Empower the customer to partner with you!
7 | Educate customers to be a conscious consumer
Use your blog and social media to teach your fans how their daily decisions (& yours) create a global impact.
8 | Fight child labor
Our THR3EFOLD factory partner never allow child labor on their watch.
9 | Stand up for fair wages & safe working conditions
The certifications we work with check all factory books to ensure workers are paid not a minimum wage, but a living wage.
10 | Manufacture environmentally friendly
Fashion is the second largest polluting industry. We are working to change that by partnering with factories who reduce their impact in waste and footprint.
11 | Provide a sustainable impact on the global poverty epidemic
By bringing business to developing nations instead of donations you are providing a long term change that the citizens can depend on, build on, and plan for their future.
