Fair Trade is a market-based approach that empowers factory workers and farmers to fight poverty, produce quality products, protect the environment, and build strong, thriving communities for generations to come. At the same time, Fair Trade USA’s Fair Trade Certified™ label empowers you, the consumer, with the knowledge that your purchase has a positive impact on the people who sew and grow the products you love.
OBEY now has select items in the line produced within the Fair Trade factory standards. Keep a lookout for the Fair Trade icon on select garment hangtags to help identify our efforts to make fair and ethical clothing.
For every OBEY Fair Trade Certified™ product sold, a percentage is paid directly to a special fund for the workers that create our goods. They decide collectively how to spend these funds based on the community’s greatest needs: from scholarships and school buses, to medical care and disaster relief services.
