At Filanthropic we are committed to outfitting you in the finest quality and coolest threads around, but that's not all.......
We are equally as committed to making sure we are acting responsibly as a company. So our commitment to you is that we will never use child labor or sweat shops, we will never intentionally do anything to harm this awesome planet of ours either! We also want to use our position as an employer wisely so we give 50% of our positions to people who don't already have a job. As if that isn't enough, we are also committed to investing out profits wisely. We aren't about getting a fancy sports car or flying business class, instead we are about changing people’s lives for the better. So, for every dollar we make in profit we give 50 cents to sustainable development projects all over the world. Watch the video to learn more
Setting up a new business is tough, setting up a new business that operates on a extremely nontraditional business model is even harder! Its been a long and often bumpy road to get here but finally the store is open and t-shirts are heading out of the door to you all. I thought Id share you all some of my experiences and the things Ive learnt along the way. There is still plenty to learn of course so this will be the first in a series of posts but a hope you enjoy it!
I just got back from 4 days in El Salvador where I was genuinely privileged to be able to present the Fuentes family with a grant and a micro-loan that is literally going to change their lives forever. This was the first project that we have been able to finance through Filanthropic and is was a real privilege to meet and talk with the people who are going to benefit from the money that we have been able to provide.
