The Mission: To raise 250,000 women and their families out of abject poverty while ensuring that ethical and sustainable products are accessible to all.
SO JUST SHOP works with co-operatives in marginalised communities to ethically produce jewellery, accessories & homewares. Many of these co-operatives provide the women with literacy and numeracy lessons, creches and education for their children, an extended family, as well as a legal and safe form of employment, that pays them a fair living wage.
Up to 80%* of each sale goes back to the artisans groups; all products made or sourced for SO JUST SHOP are in-line with their core values:
Just Women - products to made by women-led groups, handcrafted by female artisans
Just Pay - all employees are paid an adequate living wage
Just Working Conditions - a workplace that is free from hazards and maintains working conditions that are safe and healthy for their employees
Just Working Hours - maximum standard working hours of 48 hours a week / 8hrs day
Age - all employees are above the legal minimum working age
Materials - made from ethical and sustainable materials, promoting recycled and upcycled products
