I'd like to introduce you to Comrade Clothing! We'd love to chat,
network & generally collaborate w/anyone who is interested or active
in the Fair Trade movement, so give
us a shout!
Thanks & Hope to hear from you soon,
The Comrade Clothing Team
Here's a little bit about our company:
All of our shirts are produced in Ciudad Sandino, Nicaragua at the
"Nueva Vida" women's sewing co-operative.
Our shirts are proudly made in a fully worker-owned environment where
all decisions are made democratically and where all workers enjoy
profit sharing privileges and control over company policy.
In addition to being ethically made, our products always conform to
strict environmental standards and many of our clothes are made using
only certified ring spun organic cotton.
As a part of our commitment to the principles of fair-trade & social
justice, Comrade Clothing will donate $1 for every shirt purchased
towards an organization or cause of your choice which supports the
global struggle against poverty and inequality.
If you're interested in purchasing a shirt or carrying Comrade Clothing
in your retail location, please contact us as soon as possible!
Solidarity, Peace & Blessings,
The [Comrade Clothing] Team
P.P.S Here's what some people in the blogosphere are saying about
"This whole enterprise strikes me as a fantastic idea, both for
consumers in the States who wish to shop ethically and for the labor
movements in Latin America, who have been mistreated through-out
history and into the present day particularly through Reagan's funding
and training of the anti-communist Contras. This strikes me as a way
to finally move past that horrific period in the 80s when people just
disappeared like ghosts and nearly weekly there was another bomb blast
in a market. And from my viewpoint, the benefits are twofold: you give
your hard-earned cash to an equitably run and managed garment
collective, and you avoid giving it to people-hungry garment factories
that plunge workers into hellish working and living conditions all for
the sake of saving a buck."
