I appreciate fashion, but I wouldn’t say it’s been a priority in my life until recently. One of the reasons I was drawn to joining the team at Jo’el Worldwear, was the company’s sense of deeper purpose. The company supports artisans and fashion designers impacted by various challenges beyond their control.
Next time I shop for clothes, the purpose behind ethical fashion will be foremost in my mind. When I purchase ethically produced clothing, there will be no doubt in my mind that I’ve made a difference. Simply put, it’s an easy way to give back and it just feels good to do the right thing.
