Veja purchases its organic cotton from 320 farmers who live in the poverty-stricken northeast of Brazil. The cotton is certified fair-trade, which means the farmers are paid fairly for their product and receive a premium at the end of each year for community development purposes. The rubber is sustainably sourced from trees in the Amazon. Interestingly the company does zero advertising and creates no excess stock. Learn more about these unusual policies here. You can order online.
