About GOEX


Feel Good About The Clothes You Wear!

We are a people first company! GOEX uses a simple tee to connect the customer and the maker. Our customers sustain fair wage jobs in Haiti that liberate workers from poverty and empower them in their families and communities. On average one employee in Haiti supports six family or community members with their wages.

But this tee does even more! At GOEX, we choose better with each decision – better for people and the planet. What does that mean?

We evaluate our fabrics and components each year to ensure we use the most sustainable options available. From OEKO-TEX® ECO PASSPORT certified fabrics to Fair Trade labels & tags, our garments are created from the most eco-friendly textiles we can source.

We are proud of our Fair Trade Federation Verification – we are dedicated to following the nine FTF principles established to maintain transparency & integrity. In addition to FTF, we are verified members of B Corp, the Fair Labor Association, the Social Enterprise Alliance and the Social Enterprise World Forum.

Support of our teams is mission critical. In both the US and in Haiti, we analyze pay and benefits annually to ensure all of our employees are able to care for their families, stay healthy and plan for the future.

“Le travail c'est la liberté”

Our Social Enterprise Story

“Work is freedom”. When asked about going to work even when the trip there is dangerous, this was the response of our team members in Haiti. A fair wage job truly has the ability to liberate and empower people.

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.GOEX Apparel builds on that foundation by providing US consumers the opportunity to contribute to family strengthening and job creation programs around the world. 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.
