1- A brand on a mission
Changers is about a vision of a better world that focuses on encouraging people to fulfill their life while they also take action to make this world a better place.
2- Farmers, workers
Our suppliers are members of the Fair Wear Foundation, an independent organization that works with apparel brands, garment workers, and textile industry influencers to improve labor conditions in garment factories. Our partners not only guarantee a legal minimum wage and fundamental legal requirements such as in-house childcare facilities, maternity leave, and medical cover but also offer additional benefits to their workers. These benefits include free transportation, performance and attendance bonuses, and increasing pay scales.
3- Giving back
We believe a company is no more only meant to make good products, provide great service and generate the maximum amount of profit. For us, companies are now also responsible for generating wealth that can be used to impact positively the world. It’s now part of their liability. And because of our values and culture, we chose to give back and support NGOs dedicated to youths' empowerment through an NGO that we participated in its creation called WE RISE UP.
4- Organic cotton
Because we do clothes, we care about our impact and the environment. So the less we can do is to use only eco-friendly materials. Organic cotton farming uses natural methods, such as crop rotation, which benefit not only the soil, fauna, and the environment, but create biodiversity and promote good health and quality of life.
It takes 2,700 liters of water to make one regular t-shirt, which is enough for one person to drink for 900 days. On the other hand, our organic t-shirt uses 91% less water which represents a significant impact on the planet. In addition to that, because we don’t use chemicals and pesticides on the crops, the water used for irrigation is safely evacuated into the ground. Our suppliers also have a strong policy regarding the treatment of used water generated by all the processes of fabrication to ensure that it’s safe enough to be discharged back into inland surface water.
About 9.5 million tons of plastic are thrown into the ocean annually, most of it single-use. So if we use polyester (on sweatshirts), it’s recycled polyester, in keeping with a circular economy approach. It’s our first step to re-use all this plastic waste around the world.
7- GMO, pesticides
Conventional cotton is mainly grown from genetically modified (GMO) seeds, and with the assistance of agricultural chemicals. This practice is not only harmful and toxic for the planet on a long-term basis but also for the farmers that suffer from diseases/ physiological disorders and cancers due to their exposition to pesticides. This is why we only use organic cotton. It comes from seeds that have not been genetically modified (non-GMO) and are grown without the use of chemical pesticides or fertilizers.
