What People are Saying about us
Scott Nova, Executive Director of the Worker Rights Consortium (WRC)
In the fifteen year history of codes of conduct and monitoring programs... the simple fact is—no major apparel brand has ever done what is being done at the Alta Gracia factory.”
Catherine Simonson, Notre Dame Shirt Project Executive Committee member
The decision to use Alta Gracia again was based on the quality of its product and its commitment to workers’ rights.
Maria Louzon, National Coordinator for United Students for Fair Trade
USFT chose to endorse AG because it sets a higher standard for social justice… Alta Gracia is a truly inspiring project - workers love their jobs and the quality of work is much higher than anything I've seen!
What is being said about the competition
The New York Times
Documents found at the Tazreen apparel factory in Bangladesh, where 112 workers died in a fire nearly two weeks ago, indicate that three American garment companies were using the facotry during the past uear to supply goods to Walmart and its Sam's Club subsidiary.
ESPN Outside The Lines
A couple of decades ago, we first heard about all these sensational scandals about Nike sweatshops, and I would say, two decades later, not much has changed.
The Journal, Webster University
For undeveloped and developing countries such as Bangladesh, Vietnam, Guatemala, and many many others this is how people make a “living”. I put quotations around the word living because the little money workers make in return for their hard labor is a joke.
