Welcome to the closing of the official 30 Day Social Enterprise Celebration of Earth Tribe Baby Company!
Earth Tribe Baby Company has a very unique business model, where all of their products are manufactured in our communities, with a focus on working with stay at home parents, First Nations or individuals with disabilities. By creating flexible work, they provide a platform for financial independence – allowing people to make decisions which better themselves and the communities we share. Be sure to visit their website to check out the products they offer!
To celebrate the launch of their fantastic journey, we partnered with them and other like minded businesses and bloggers to offer 30 days of back to back giveaways, product reviews and discount days! This is the final giveaway to close the celebration with a big bang!
Today we are giving away a $150 gift card from Oliberté. Oliberté manufactures premium footwear in Africa and their store features a selection of high quality and stylish footwear and gear. They have also joined the 1% For The Planet movement, which means that one percent of their proceeds goes to bettering our world. See more information about their company from their website below:
“When we first shared the idea of manufacturing our footwear in Africa, many asked: Why? Why or how could anyone want to make shoes in a place full of so much poverty and corruption?
The answer is simple: We never have and still don’t see an Africa that’s categorised by negative generalizations. Oliberté believes that with the right partners, each country within Africa has the means to grow and support its people. So that’s what we do – Oliberté partners with factories, suppliers, farmers and workers to produce premium footwear in Africa, but we do more than that. We work to create fair jobs, with the goal of contributing to the development of a thriving middle class.
When we made the decision to work in Africa, we knew we would face some challenges, but we made sure to maintain our focus on ethical practices. When we started off, it meant that Oliberté ensured it partnered with suppliers and factories that demonstrated respect and equity in the work place for men and women. Then, in August of 2012, we were able to start our own factory in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
We carefully selected each of our partner factories based on our “play fair” factor, and we continue to play by this high bar. Women comprise approximately 60 percent of our factory employees, including manufacturing as well as administrative positions.
Oliberté shoes are made from natural rubber crepe soles, breathable and hand-picked leather, reverse backing, and reinforcement stitching”
