Our Mission

The Socially Responsible Sweatshop is committed to repurposing landfill-destined textiles into useful, beautiful items. These items are lovingly crafted and priced affordably. Proceeds from the sales of these items are donated to provide extra funds for food-insecure community members and other social justice projects. The volunteers of the SRS strive to be helpful to our brothers and sisters while demonstrating responsible stewardship of our Earth and the protection of its environment.

Our Vision

Extend our financial assistance to other causes that we see fit and feasible. Refine and promote our grassroots business model. Create education programs to teach the young and old how to use resources effectively and creatively.
