Who Made your T-shirt?
Liminal Apparel is a New Zealand owned and operated company. Across its whole business, the parent company of Liminal Apparel employs ~ 40 people in Christchurch.
Liminal Apparel's t-shirts are made in Kolkata, India by a company called Freeset. Freeset is World Fair Trade Organisation certified, provides safe working conditions, living wages, stable work and above all, creates good jobs in strong and vibrant communities where poverty has dominated daily life for far too long.
So your RNZ Critter tee does 3 things:
- Generates funds for NZ Conservation organisations (RNZ t-shirt campaigns have raised $22,401 for Conservation and Social Service groups in NZ)
- Contributes to the sustainable running of a local NZ company.
- Creates good jobs and choice in a part of the world where poverty has previously dominated.
That seems good all round to us!
