The clothes we wear tell a story. Good & Fair Clothing tells a story of dignitiy, respect, and love. Our story starts on the farms of India. We partner with an organic cotton farmersâ€™ cooperative for the raw cotton that goes into our designs.

Good & Fair Clothing is a dream, a vision, and a mission to do good and be fair. Fair trade certification accompanies the cotton we use and the production of our tee shirts and underwear. We go all the way to the source and partner with certified cooperatives and companies in order to create clothes that reflect our values.

Nauâ€™s Family Story Farmers in India have suffered the abuse of unscrupulous money lenders and middlemen. Cotton farmers have found themselves under crushing debt, unable to pay back lenders. The major reason to barrow money is to buy pesticide to spread over the yearly crop. The cost of the pesticide is inflated, forcing them to borrow more than they can pay back. Launching them into a cycle of debt, continuing to barrow money for pesticide, pay it back, then borrowing more money, to again buy more pesticide. Tens of thousands of farmers across India's agricultural sector have committed suicide over the past two decades. Chetna Organic Cotton Project started in 2004 to address this and other pressing problems farmers and their families face every day. No longer dependent on pesticides to grow cotton our partner farmers receive support and training to farm according to organic standards. This gets them out of the cycle of extreme poverty and crushing debt. Chetna adopted fair trade standards and pays member farmers a certified fair trade price for their cotton. Being good to the earth has a direct financial benefit to the 6,000+ farmers who make up the coop. Now they aren't under the heal of lenders and are able to build a life free from debt. Nau's father is one of these farmers. Nau attends school in the small village of Agar. His father and the other Chetna Coop farmers used a portion of their profit to build a school for children. Not having to pay back massive debts allows them to give the gift of education. We met briefly when I first visited the school. He was shy and didn't say too much. He is just one of many children who benefit from the fair trade and organic supply chain Good & Fair uses. This is the story to which we are dedicated, a story of freedom and love. - Shelton Green, Founder, Good & Fair Clothing
