APPAREL DONE DIFFERENTLY GOEX exists to improve the lives of the workers and communities we touch. How does a t-shirt do that? -Fair wages, dignified employment that strengthens families -Sustainable fabrics or components in every garment -USA fabric cut and sewn in Haiti lowers the carbon footprint -High quality, fair trade manufacturing -Social impact in the USA and in Haiti GOEX is fully owned by The Global Orphan Project, a nonprofit that began investing in the lives of vulnerable children in 2004. Here is one of the most important truths: the best form of Orphan Care is Orphan Prevention, and the best form of Orphan Prevention is a strong job. This is what differentiates us from your ordinary apparel company. We exist to improve the lives of the workers and communities we touch. On average, one of our workers earning a fair wage supports six family members. After costs to sustainably produce premium eco-friendly apparel and provide living wage jobs, all GOEX profit — every bit of it — goes to fund projects set in motion by The Global Orphan Project.
THESE AREN'T JUST JOBS Even with a recently increased legal minimum wage in Haiti, most workers in the apparel sector struggle to make ends meet. We choose to pay our workers more. Daily wages are 65% higher than the sector minimum and our employees have the ability to earn 140%+ of minimum based on production. Other workers in the apparel industry in Haiti work six days per week for a minimum wage that barely covers their daily expenses. It is our goal to disrupt that thought process and prove a company can charge more and pay more, therefore elevating the lives of their employees allowing them to care for their families and build a better future.
