For Human Justice.
CAUSEGEAR® is the Human Justice brand designed in Chicago and made in India. Our mission is to transform the lives of one million people trapped in unfathomable poverty & injustice to become self-sustaining. Every item has the name & face of your crafter. Every purchase supports a job, paying 5X the norm. The company is an L3C social enterprise with 90% of profits benefiting crafters.
Today, there are 2.8 billion people living in extreme poverty and 35.8 million slaves*. The highest amount of slavery and poverty is in India. The typical fashion worker is paid $2/day and works in inhumane conditions for 12 hrs./day. The U.S. is increasing its fashion purchases from India at a rate of 8% a year. If 25% of the U.S. shifted $65 in fashion spending to CAUSEGEAR in 1 year, 1 million lives would be transformed**.
* According to The Global Slavery Index. **80 million (25% of U.S.) x $65 = enough to provide for 250,000 crafters + 3 others.
