rePURPOSE


We love rePURPOSE, and the way they are running their business. They are battling injustice and unemployment and waste and human trafficking all at the same time, while also producing amazing headbands! Here's how they work: They buy clothing from thrift stores which all at once reduces waste, keeps extra money from going into the garment industry (which has a terrible track record for human slavery), and supports the local missions which run the shops. Next, they hire refugees living in their area to work to repurpose the clothing and turn it into beautiful headbands. Then they sell the headbands, and donate 100% of their profits to three charities- two of which are involved in anti-trafficking, and one which is focused on bringing clean water to the world. How often can you buy a product that does all that?
