    Like the oceans we rise

    While the human race faces a nearly unprecedented challenge with the coronavirus, it's sometimes easy to forget our planet has been and still is facing its own crises as well. And few are more urgent than the degradation of the world's marine eco-systems: the oceans. A vaccine for the ocean's sickness will need to be equal parts hard work, creativity, and global cooperation. The good news is all three are underway.

    A win win

    Our partner in Colombia has joined with an innovative organization called 4Oceans. Their program takes two ecological challenges and simply solves them. First, they organize crews to collect ocean waste - much of it plastic. Yay, cleaner oceans! Second they repurpose the discarded plastic into fibers that are woven into face masks, eliminating the need to create synthetic materials and creating a worldwide market for ocean waste. Pretty brilliant if you ask us!

    Ethically made

    Like all Fair Indigo clothing, our recycled face masks are made in facilities that pay workers living wages and treat them fairly and with dignity. Our partner workshop in Medellin, Colombia knows that sustainable doesn't stop with caring for the earth. It means caring for its people too.

    And paying it forward one more time

    In addition to living wage jobs, we believe the key to transforming communities from poverty to prosperity is education. The Fair Indigo Foundation funds teachers' salaries, books, building improvements, and computer labs for children who otherwise were being left behind. And it's so easy to make a big difference - just check the $5 donation box at checkout. Your $5 donations have literally transformed the lives of children, their families, and their communities in Peru. Learn More
