Shop Ethical Fashion With School House

It’s not just about size, color, long sleeve or short– It’s also about the message and story behind the clothes.

If you take a minute to stop and think about that tee you’re trying on, chances are it has traveled across open waters to land in the store you are browsing.  It was at the hands of a hard worker who depends on each stitch to feed his or her family.

One Fullbright Scholar, Rachel Weeks, took time to think about those who were spending their days sewing and manufacturing her clothes and how many of them were poorly paid.

In 2007, Weeks traveled to Sri Lanka in hopes of bringing free and fair fashion to college campuses, according to School House.

Shop School House and make a difference.

So, to create quality garments while improving labor rights, Weeks teamed up with ALARM, a Sri Lankan coalition of labor rights organizations and trade unions, to launch School House.

School House pays premium prices to its suppliers to ensure living wages are paid in the manufacturing facilities, according to the company’s website.

So, when you shop School House, you are making a difference each day, t-shirt by t-shirt.  Shop School House at your campus bookstore today and contribute to the success of ethical fashion for all.

    Stop ovrseas jobs!! We need jobs here in America not degrading people overseas into low paying jobs. Discrimination comes in alll forms and taking jobs away from Americans is discrimination.

      Hi Lynn- This is definitely a debate when it comes to creating jobs overseas. The great thing about School House, though is that they actually pay their workers a living wage, so it’s actually beneficial toward the improvement of their livelihood.
