Since the founding of the company in 1991, Equality has always been at the forefront of People Trees’ values. It is proud to support both men and women and disadvantaged workers within all the stages of the supply chain and adhere to the principles of fair trade for all producers and workers. That’s why the launch of this Equality slogan tee is particularly poignant for the brand.
Assisi, the maker who produces the tee, employs a workforce of 300 people, including underprivileged women and 120 physically challenged men and women. It now also provides training and employment for deaf, mute and economically disadvantaged women and invests in the community by supporting various social projects, including a cancer hospital and an AIDS rehabilitation centre.
People Tree’s Equality t-shirt is 100% organic cotton certified by the Soil Association. This safeguards the farmers who grow the cotton against harmful toxic chemicals and pesticides. Avoiding pesticides also reduces production costs and farmer debts, helping to create sustainable businesses for our producer partners.
