At one point last month I would literally google an item and ethical fashion. Many of my searched ended in fraught but my “rain boots and ethical fashion” turned up a fabulous brand I’m excited to share with you today!
Brand: Roma Boots
Country of Origin: China
How they give back: one for one model + 10% to charity
Products: Women’s & Kids rain boots
What to love about this brand: Roma Boots merges fashion with philanthropy to give poverty the boot. Our mission is to bring impoverished children throughout the world hope, love, and lasting change through aid and education. For every pair of boots sold, a new pair is donated to a child in need. Additionally, ten percent of all proceeds funds educational initiatives around the world. Roma was founded in 2010 by Samuel Bistrian, who wanted to combine his love of fashion and philanthropy to help children in his home country of Romania.
Roma’s ultimate goal is not only to provide aid, but to educate. By doing so we will empower them to contribute their gifts & talents to society, eradicate poverty as a condition and a state of mind to make this world a better place. (from HERE)
What I love about Roma Boots: First, finding ethically made rain boots is no easy feet (pun intended) and these are not only well made, but they also give back. Roma works with manufactures in China to guarantee their workers are being treated well and to also give back to communities in boots through their own non-profit organization.
