When I was in the process of doing research to create my ethical fashion and ethical product directory, I came across My Sister and immediately loved their mission!
My Sister is a brand that is another playing in the active fight to end human trafficking. And, if you know me, you know that this is a cause I am passionate about and so I am all about supporting brands, businesses, and organizations that are in the fight against modern day slavery.
My Sister actively reinvests their profits back into the local community and around the world to provide education, empowerment and employment.
A percentage of each purchase goes to their non-profit partners which helps raise awareness, provides intervention, after-care, education, job skill training and, ultimately, works towards ending the demand. Ending the demand is really getting at the ROOT of the issue!
Their mission is to get people involved in their own communities and to be a voice for our sisters who don’t have one.
I also love that My Sister has stories of life change that they share to show the impact that can happen!
They have (obviously) their online shop, but they ALSO have a brick and mortar location in Minneapolis, Minnesota!
So, what do they sell? They sell men’s and women’s t-shirts and accessories such as metallic tattoos (which are SO FUN) and jewelry! I love the positive messages they have on so many of their shirts and so many of their products. I love things that affirm, encourage, and inspire!
I also love that they have men’s attire that affirms WOMEN! We need more of that in this world!!
Also something that is really important and impactful for me is their commitment to corporate responsibility and ethical sourcing and production of their goods.
Their apparel suppliers are 100% sweatshop free and are in accordance with the Fair Labor Association Workplace Code of Conduct, with many of the shirts made in the U.S.A. Many of the factories where the apparel is manufactured are certified by Worldwide Responsible Accredited Production (WRAP), an independent non-profit team of global social compliance experts. THAT is sooooo important to me! I love their transparency and commitment to that, too.
So yeah, My Sister is another AMAZING brand that is changing the landscape and the conversation around not only the fashion industry, but also actively working to END and fight human trafficking.
What about you? Have you heard of My Sister? Any brands or companies I should check out?
