Talk about going the extra mile.
Creating clothes in an environmentally friendly way is great in itself, but more and more eco-friendly companies, like Loomstate and Fed By Threads, are going one step further and putting profits toward a good cause.
Sustainable apparel companies like Fed By Threads and Loomstate aim not only to design eco-friendly clothes, but also to put proceeds to good use.
Loomstate is New York City-based online sustainable apparel shop that has its hand in multiple special fundraising projects. One-hundred percent of the profits from Loomstate’s Sandy Recovery Tees go to Waves for Water and Food Bank for NY. Loomstate also contributes profits from its Surfer’s Healing Tees to Surfer’s Healing, a non-profit that empowers autistic youth through, you guessed it, surfing.
While Loomstate is handling hurricane recovery and surfing, Fed By Threads is battling hunger. Fed By Threads creates handmade apparel for men, women and children from organic and recycled fabrics. More than that, profits from each item sold are used to provide 12 meals to the Community Food Bank of Southern Arizona and Feeding America. As of April 1, Fed By Threads has donated 41, 886 meals.
“Our goal is to get people helping to fed America’s hungriest mouths, those that are barely getting by,” Fed By Threads says on its site. “That’s the core foundation of who we are.”
