GOEX - ABOUT

FEEL GOOD. DO GOOD.

GOEX USES A SIMPLE TEE TO CONNECT THE CUSTOMER AND THE WORKER. OUR CUSTOMERS SUSTAIN FAIR WAGE JOBS THAT LIBERATE WORKERS FROM POVERTY AND EMPOWER THEM IN THEIR FAMILIES AND COMMUNITIES.

At GOEX, we seek to do better in everything we do. 

A better shirt starts with better pay. We choose to pay our workers in Kansas City and Haiti fair wages. On average, one of our workers earning a fair wage supports six family members. 

A better shirt starts with better standards. We are proud to say GOEX is one of the elite few who have passed the Fair Trade Federation’s (FTF) rigorous screening! Check out our blog to learn more about how we are dedicated to following the nine FTF principles established to maintain integrity.

WHY OUR SHIRT IS BETTER

GOEX exists to improve the lives of the workers and communities we touch. How can a t-shirt do that?

Let our customers tell you why our shirts are better.

Our story began in 2010 in Gulu, Uganda with a woman named Lucy who had a sewing center, but no work. Our parent organization, The Global Orphan Project, created work for her sewing school uniforms and a few other items. This work gave Lucy dignity, provided for her family and for others, and changed their stories from charity to empowerment.

This is what differentiates us from most apparel companies. Over the past decade, our core story has remained the same – we exist to create and sustain fair wage jobs that empower employees to care for their families.  And we are shameless in asking others – for-profit and non-profit organizations alike – to join us in this cause!

You have the ability to change lives through a simple purchase decision. Perhaps most importantly, your partnership sets an example in the marketplace that ethical commerce can affect systemic bottom-up change through the dignity of work.

By choosing GOEX, you are choosing a better shirt for a better world.

GOEX is proud to be part of Orphan Prevention programming from our parent organization. We know the best way to keep families together and kids with their parents where they belong is to provide strong jobs that create opportunities.
