Wearing is Caring: How Booster Spirit Wear is Changing the Apparel Industry for Good
As a spirit wear company purchasing and printing millions of shirts a year, we became keenly aware of this problem and saw the opportunity to solve it. In June of 2018 we spent a week in Haiti observing and learning about garment production in this developing country. We saw how it could be done ethically and responsibly—by providing living wages jobs, the means for parents to send their kids to school, and a way out of poverty for generations to come.
No Ordinary Job
That’s why Booster Spirit Wear is proud to offer our first ever line of Change the World t-shirts. When you buy these shirts, you’re not just buying high-quality spirit wear, you’re changing the world. How? By providing a living-wage job to over 60 of our team members in Haiti.
Each of these team members supports about five family members, which means our Change the World t-shirts are providing a better life for over 300 adults and children in Haiti.
These incredible, hard-working people handmake every single shirt at our ethical factory in Haiti. And in the process, they’re able to provide for their families, send their kids to school, and truly thrive. Some of our team members have even graduated from orphan care programs and completed two years of vocational training at our Transition Academy.
No Ordinary Factory
Our Change the World shirts aren’t made in a typical factory. Our facility uses brand new, state-of-the-art equipment that’s configured for excellence and ease of production. We invested in ergonomic chairs, carefully engineered lighting to protect team members’ eyes, and created a caring atmosphere where team members feel valued and encouraged.
No Ordinary Shirt
Every shirt’s cotton is sourced, spun into yarn, and sewn into fabric in South Carolina. It’s then shipped to Haiti to be cut and sewn into shirts.
Then, they’re carefully boxed and shipped to our warehouse in Atlanta, where we offer them to amazing clients who want to make a difference with their purchase.
Wearing is Caring
At Booster Spirit Wear, we believe that wearing is caring. That’s why our vision is to change the world through the spirit wear we create every day.
So whether you’re ordering spirit wear for your school or custom apparel for your organization, you have the opportunity to make a difference with your purchase.
Choose our “Change the World” t-shirts and help us make the world a better place.
