Fashion that Transforms the World

Meet This Month's Be the Change Box:

FASHION THAT TRANSFORMS THE WORLD
DID YOU KNOW?
  • 93% of brands surveyed by the Fashion Checker aren’t paying garment workers a living wage. Not only do these individuals work exhausting hours in often deplorable conditions, but the payment they get is far from fair.
  • Textile production contributes more to climate change than international aviation and shipping combined. 
  • Fast fashion brands use open-loop production cycles that pollute water and land.
  • 68% of fast fashion brands don’t maintain gender equality at production facilities

THE IMPACT OF FAIR TRADE FASHION: 
  • Fair Trade Fashion offers a proven strategy for poverty alleviation and sustainable development.
  • The product chain consists of relationships that are open, fair, consistent, and respectful.
  • You're offering the opportunity for artisans to improve their skills and develop their capacity. 
  • Worker and artisan income are distributed promptly and equitably at all times, particularly providing equal pay for equal work by women and men.
  • Fair Trade Fashion means that all children have the right to security, education, and play. Your Fair Trade Fashion will not support child trafficking and exploitative child labor.
  • Fair Trade Fashion seeks to offer current generations the ability to meet their needs without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Fair Trade Members reduce, reuse, reclaim, and recycle materials wherever possible. 
  • Fair Trade Fashion celebrates the cultural diversity of communities while seeking to create positive and equitable change. 

At Mercantile for Good, we're committed to providing fashion that transforms the world through Fair Trade practices and partnerships that support nonprofits creating good in our world.
