CHANGE YOUR CLOSET, CHANGE THE WORLD
By Allison Gregory
What’s on your 2019 bucket list?
Eating out less? Reading more? Exercising regularly? Two weeks in, and you’re killing it. But why stop there? Here’s a challenge: change the world in 2019. Trust us, it’s easier than it sounds.
It’s a little-known fact that human trafficking and other forms of slavery are at an all-time high. In fact, according to the 2018 Global Slavery Index, there are more than 40 million slaves in the world today. Forty percent of them live in India, and 70% of this number are female.
This reality is horrible, but there are fashion brands providing life-changing jobs to these vulnerable individuals every day.
This year—today—it stops with you. Ethical shopping is the first step in improving the lives and futures of women and men across the globe, and it’s closer than you might think. Ethically-made clothing is right at your fingertips, straight from organizations that empower the world’s most desperate individuals through reimagined business models.
Every CAUSEGEAR good is handmade for you by someone who escaped the cycle of slavery and human trafficking. Located throughout Northern and Southern India, CAUSEGEAR crafters maintain well-paid positions creating apparel and accessories that you’ll be proud to own.
Think beyond the threads when you fill your closet with CAUSEGEAR apparel in 2019.
