If you are going to create a brand that gives back, why not one with something that is super practical for everyone?! We all love, wear & need socks. Purchasing sustainable socks was not something I started doing when I began my sustainable wardrobe. I, honestly, didn’t think about my socks and underwear that much. After a few holes and sock monsters later, I realized purchasing sustainably should be applied to every garment I own. Not only are you ensuring the makers are being paid a fair wage, but you’re receiving a much better quality garment - so, less replacing, and more money saved in the process. Also, I’ve noticed, the more I like and care about the brand behind the product, the better I look after it. I don’t feel as if I have to replace my socks because I’ve lost a match. Socks that I really like, usually stick together better :)
Reasons to Love Conscious Step
Giving Back: With each Conscious Step purchase, a portion of proceeds are donated to the charity associated with that pair of socks. From building homes to treating HIV, there is a cause everyone can attach themselves to. We all have been affected or cared about one or several of these causes, and it feels so good to know the clothes you wear are more than just an eco-friendly, consciously made product.
Organic Cotton: Conscious Step’s entire supply chain is GOTS and Vegan certified. This cotton is never treated with herbicides, insecticides, pesticides, and are not genetically modified. Because about 80% of the world’s organic cotton is grown in India, they have decided to manufacture there to benefit from their expertise and support small cotton farmers.
Fairly Made: Conscious Step believes in an ethical workplace because all humans deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Their products are all Fair Trade Certified, which (if you are unfamiliar) is a movement promoting a sustainable workplace with the goal of helping producers in developing countries achieve better working conditions.
What We’re Wearing
Socks that Promote Breast Cancer Prevention: Support Keep a Breast in raising awareness on breast cancer prevention - You can either purchase a pack of 3 which has three beautiful solid colors, or they have a pair with a fun boobie print I think any woman would enjoy!
Socks that Save Dogs: Saves rescue dogs through the Best Friends Animal Society - These are the socks Travis are wearing, and they are great solid basic colors. Especially if you are looking for a Father’s Day Gift, this is one to note!
Socks that Give Water: Provide access to safe water to one person for 5 years through Water.org - By far, the best ankle socks I’ve ever owned. They don’t slide down, and have that incredibly comfortable band in the middle to keep it close around your foot. I love wearing these with all of my sneakers.
Socks that Save Cats: Protect shelter cats through the work of Best Friends Animal Society - You gotta be kitten with me these sweet things! They remind me a lot of the Breast Cancer socks with the illustration, but little kitty heads instead.
