Goat Organic Apparel has a clear mission to partner with a manufacturing facility in Bangladesh that is part of the Fair Wear Foundation. This “People First” policy, as the company has called it, ensures the safety and fair treatment of all the workers involved in the manufacturing process. It means providing reasonable wages, no slave labor, safe working conditions, reasonable working hours and no discrimination.

Proudly transparent about the conditions under which its clothing is made, the goat recently launched a T-shirt in which they placed the clothing labels on the outside of the clothing. Lavinia Bakker, one of the founders of Ged, said: “This T-shirt is a cornerstone of our people-first standards. By placing our ‘Proudly made in Bangladesh’ on the outside, we want to show that we do not have to hide where and how our clothes are made, we are proud of that. And we want the wearer of the tee to be that too. We dare you to find a high-street fashion brand that will do the same with a clear conscience. ”

In addition to employee fairness and safety, Goat is dedicated to sustainable production. It uses 100% GOTS-certified organic cotton, which ensures health in the soil and the ecosystem where the cotton is grown. In addition, production is free of toxic chemicals. Some sweaters made from goat are made from recycled polyester, which reduces the need for virgin materials made from crude oil and lowers waste at landfills.

The goat’s ideals of offering only vegan, organic, safe and reasonably produced products led them to start giving back in support of causes with similar goals. The “Taking Action” initiative donates revenue from the “Proudly Made in Bangladesh” T-shirt to Labor Behind the Label, a charity that provides assistance to textile workers around the world.
