Ethical Fashion???

4 Mar


I have proposed a question within the title of this article. Ethical Fashion…. Can it exist? Well within the eyes of the Founders of Sseko Designs the answer is an astounding YES! Sseko Designs hires women in Uganda to make sandals. These women come from all different walks of life. In return they earn funds that go directly towards their College educations to invest in their bright futures.These women are receiving practical work experience and life long skills. The sandals they create are exquisite. Honestly they are fashion forward and very versatile. The Ribbon sandals design is simple, however from one shoe you have limitless creativity. The ribbons can be changed, which gives you many options. There is even a guide to show you all the different ways you can tie your shoes. And they also offer accessories such as beads, and jewels to jazz up your design. You can literally have 10 shoes in one. I will be purchasing the classic sandal package for $69.99. You get 3 ribbons and a base. That’s like having 3 shoes in 1. Not to mention your supporting a great cause. I am all about paying it forward. Please check out http://ssekodesigns.com . I doubt you will be disappointed .There are so many other cool designs and accessories so please take a look. If you know of any other companies who are involved in ethical fashion, please feel free to share with me in the comments section below!

Generally we don’t post two articles a day because we don’t like to bombard our readers… However me being the insomniac I am, I was introduced to this video on Facebook… And all I can say is, it has changed me!!! I have dedicated this day to speared the word, to be involved, to MAKE A DIFFERENCE…..

Often times in life we want to make a change but feel so insufficient…. We feel so low on the totem pole or question what can I do???? Well you would be suprised to know what you could do with the assistance of technology nowadays. Look at “Operate Wall Street“…. That was a group of young people who changed the course of history… Look at President Obama’s election… We fought together to see history take its course… And now we are needed again!!! I could explain in detail the mission of “Invisible Children“. But I rather you take the 30 min to watch the documentary…. It moved me to act, to responded and to be the change I want to see in the world…. I ask that you take the time and watch the video…. Let the words and images resonate in your spirit… Then I ask that you share it with others. I ask that you take a moment to speared the word so that we can bring an end to the war against children, and an end to JOSEPH KONY
