LIFE S.A.: A NON-PROFIT FACTORY GIVING BACK TO HAITI
Haiti Update: September 28, 2023
We are currently no longer cutting & sewing at LIFE in Haiti. They are and forever will be part of our story.
Our previous partner factory in Haiti is owned by the GO Project. All of its profits go directly to orphan-related initiatives, like its orphan care program that meets orphans’ basic needs in 20 countries, and orphan transition programs that teach them vocational skills so they can create better lives for themselves once they become adults. We couldn’t be more proud of where and who makes Allmade t-shirts.
The LIFE factory reduces wastewater, oil, and chemical consumption in the process to create high-quality t-shirts. With organic, non-GMO cotton grown in the US, a next-generation viscose made from sustainably-harvested beech trees, and polyester yarn made from recycled plastic bottles, they’re able to produce t-shirts with far less harm to the planet. And because Haiti is a mere 500 miles from Miami, the completed t-shirts don’t have to travel far to get made, reducing their ecological footprint even more.
Allmade believes in fair wages, no matter where in the world you are. The workers at LIFE make on average 3-4x the local minimum wage, enabling them to care for their children and afford to live near their workplace, so they can build balanced lives and a supportive community. Plus, vocational training and opportunities for advancement ensure they have upward mobility.
