Autonomie Project, Inc.
Autonomie Project (AP) is a new Fair Trade fashion company offering stylish sweatshop-free & eco-friendly footwear, clothing and accessories. Born out of frustration that most sweatshop-free clothing was unfashionable and most eco-friendly clothing was likely made in a sweatshop (and that most major corporations lack any kind of true transparency), a few good friends set off to start a new and different company.
Their mission: to supply high-quality, stylish garments to consumers that seek to make purchases that align with their values without having to sacrifice their own personal style, all while making a positive social impact on their earth and raising awareness about today’s most pressing global issues.
AP use organic cotton, all natural FSC rubber, and other eco-friendly & locally-sourced materials whenever possible to lessen their environmental impact. They never use animal products and encourage cruelty-free purchases. AP assists their workers with the development and marketing of their products so that they may prosper and become thriving participants in a reconfigured global marketplace.
