A presentation on Elephant Branded, a socially responsible apparel company that supports education in the developing world. Their mission is to make a positive, long term, sustainable change to the communities that make their products and the children who receive their school kits. You buy one ethically made, recycled bag or related Elephant Branded product and they give an ergonomically designed school kit to a child in Africa or Asia. Simple as that.
These school kits are hand delivered by partner organisations working on the ground to make sure that every purchase makes a positive change to someone's life.
Elephant Branded support the communities that produce their products by paying a fair and reasonable wage, and giving them the opportunity to learn valuable skills that permit them to have a sustainable, effective way to get out of poverty.
Together, through hand delivering school equipment to children across the world, you give them the chance to better themselves, their future and that of the communities they form part of. The school equipment that you donate by buying Elephant Branded's products is the tool that lets them do this. Where possible, donation equipment is sourced in country to develop local economies and avoid transportation emissions. Elephant Branded absorbs the cost of all donation equipment through each product they sell.
Businesses should be engaging in Corporate Social Responsibility, which aims to provide for a good and fair society, one that is sustainable and this cannot be created without the help of companies. With power comes responsibility and I believe that businesses have a responsibility to become moral actors and have a role to play in making the world a better place alongside and perhaps even above its narrower commercial obligations. Elephant Branded, in my view, are doing just that.
