Almost: Fair Wear Apparel

fairwear.jpg Fair Wear is manufactured in Bangladesh where factory wages are the lowest in the world (six cents an hour!), but don't worry, we think this company has a great mission: "To provide you with stylish clothing at an affordable price, while giving fair pay to the workers that made it." Fair Wear has an agreement with the factory in which they send 1/3 (or 33.33%) of their gross income back to be distributed among the factory workers as a bonus to their regular pay. Their mission simplified: "Transform a sweatshop into living wage jobs." Although their project is more socially conscious than environmentally-friendly, founder Stephanie McMillan tells us that they are working on sourcing organic cotton and finding non-polluting dyes. We like the TreeHugger tee best, of course (graphic shown). ::Fair Wear
