Our New Fair Trade Line Empowers Female Garment Workers

Our new Fair Trade Certified™ line is helping the talented women who make Athleta’s garments unleash their limitless potential.

Every time you buy from the line, we pay an additional premium directly back to the people who made the tank, pant, or bra. Collectively, the workers decide how to spend the money to better their community. Everything from childcare, to transportation, to women’s health programs, to education. Our Spring collection features more than 40 Fair Trade Certified™ styles, with more to be added throughout the year.

For a product to earn Fair Trade Certification, the factory in which it’s created must adhere to rigorous standards socially, environmentally, and economically. That includes promoting sustainable livelihoods for workers, preserving fragile ecosystems, and building transparent supply chains.

Fair Trade makes lives better. Shop our Fair Trade spring collection and help improve the quality of life for women and their communities, around the world.
