Socially Conscious Brands

Alta GarciaStudents at hundreds of our schools are wearing their collegiate apparel with more pride than ever before, because not only are they supporting their schools – they’re contributing to social justice and responsibility at the same time.

Our commitment to fair labor standards and offering top-quality products led us to be early supporters of Alta Gracia Apparel and League Collegiate Outfitters, a collegiate apparel manufacturer that pays workers in the Dominican Republic 300 percent more than the local minimum wage.

We have been recognized as an industry leader in the effort to eliminate sweatshops used to produce college apparel. We are a member of the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and since 1998, we have required all vendors who supply products to our stores to adopt the FLA’s Code of Conduct, which requires strict adherence to workers’ rights (and no child labor).
