Here at UBUNTU Made we are knee-deep in the world of socially conscious brands. We are proud to be part of a community that goes beyond giving back and instead gives opportunity, empowerment, jobs, even insurance and savings accounts. The women we work with were not saved by UBUNTU Made; they made the decision to bring themselves out of poverty and UBUNTU Made has the honor of being the vehicle to get them there. They are our heroes, not the other way around. We wanted to share a few of our #consciouscrushes - brands that are also giving opportunities to heroes around the world. In the spirit of UBUNTU, "I am because we are," we recognize our brothers and sisters in the fight for change.
