Tom's got his hands full as Fair Labor Apparel scores a hit at Maggie's

We've got a hit on our hands – and Tom's got his hands full.

Tom, who runs our Ypsilanti warehouse, is busier than ever filling orders for our new Fair Labor Apparel clothing line, which launched earlier this spring. Faster than we expected, retail customers and distributors are buying Maggie's Fair Labor products, made with 100% organic cotton fibers: camisoles, tanks, wrap tops, hoodies, wide leg pants, knit dresses, unisex tees and scarves.

At prices ranging from $12.75 to $25.50, our Fair Labor clothes are attractive and affordable – and available with a guarantee that workers who made them are treated fairly and paid a living wage.

Don't take our word for it. Maggie's Functional Organics is the first-ever clothing line to win a rigorous Fair Labor Practices and Community Benefits certification from Scientific Certification Systems (SCS).

Before issuing this certification, SCS examined every stage of Maggie's organic clothing supply chain: the growers, cotton gin, spinner, knitter, dyer, cutter, sewer, screen-printer in Central America, as well as our office and warehouses here in the U.S.

You can read the fair whole labor story here. As always, Tom and the rest of the team at Maggie's are doing our best to make organic clothes that are good for people and good for our planet.

PS: Tom
likes being busy, so please keep your orders coming. And if you've already made an order, let us know what you think!
