Go Explore

 

Embrace your inner explorer from the comforts of home. 

 

You may not be able to go to many places right now but that doesn’t mean you have to put your sense of adventure on hold. Feed your need for travel with our Go Explore Tees. Each country represents a place where GO Project supports local communities caring for kids.

 

 

 

These best-selling tees feature a relaxed fit designed for comfort but with features that keep it stylish, including the heathered colors and topstitch at the collar. The eco-friendly fabric includes five recycled water bottles and is a slightly heavier weight than many triblends on the market, keeping this shirt looking great wash after wash. These tees are made from U.S. eco-friendly materials, cut and sewn in Haiti and designed and printed in Kansas City. Oh and did we mention, all of our workers are paid a fair-wage! Basically, this means they’re the best, comfiest tees on the market made at the highest standard!

Invest in the Health of Your Makers

 

2019 was a year of turmoil in Haiti – from political riots that prevented our employees from getting to work to rapidly rising inflation, life kept getting harder in an already tough environment. This led us to look at how we could continually support and provide for our employees in keeping with our Fair Trade values. Our employees received modest pay raises, which were more than offset by the country’s inflation crisis. So, at the beginning of 2020, we launched a new lunch program providing a meal for each of our employees at LIFE, our boutique apparel factory in Haiti, every day free of charge.

 

This lunch program provides several benefits:

 

    1. Lunch costs our employees about $1 per day so this meal gives them an immediate and impactful increase to available funds for other expenses.

    2. The lunch we provide is a balanced meal which includes protein giving everyone better energy for afternoon production and the evening at home with their families.

    3. We purchased reusable lunch containers for all of our employees eliminating styrofoam waste on site.

    4. Because we are a small factory, we did not have lunch vendors on site so employees had to walk to get lunch each day. Now that food is delivered, they have time to relax over their lunch breaks.

 

In developing the program, we sought input from employees on menus, possible vendors and other logistics. We love creating opportunities for our employees to be involved in decisions, especially those that directly impact them.

 

Instead of raising the price of our garments to pay for this program, we are choosing to reinvest some of GOEX’s profits and to fundraise throughout the year to help offset the cost.

 

This is where you come in.

 

We are inviting you to buy your makers a meal.

 

 

Do you have an extra dollar?

One dollar at a time, we hope to fully fund a lunch program for the whole staff at LIFE in 2020. With one dollar, you can feed, celebrate, thank and invest in the well being of your makers. With one dollar saved, they can love, care for and focus on the well being of their family. Give today!
