Contributing organizations include:
beelove employs women and men returning home from incarceration. Together with their partner, Sweet Beginnings, they provide opportunities to establish a positive work history, learn productive work habits, and become productive members of society. Every purchase of their products reduces the number of people who return to prison by providing the support, confidence and skills needed to re-enter the workforce.
Women’s Bean Project in Denver, Colorado, believes that all women have the power to transform their lives through employment. They hire women who are chronically unemployed and teach them to work by making nourishing products. Instead of a one-time handout, women acquire the tools needed to sustain themselves and their families for a lifetime. Because when you change a woman’s life, you change her family’s life.

Their entire supply chain is GOTS and Vegan certified and all socks are made from organic cotton. Each pair of socks purchased gives $1 to charity. Optional causes include: refugee relief; mental health relief; LGBTQ support; animal protection and many more.
