    The ALL FOR ONE SHOP sells Alta Gracia

    Posted: 4/25/15 1:29 PM

    Alta Gracia is a company that addresses fair-trade work, and one of its missions is to better the lives and maintain the dignity of all their employees. Within their factories of the Dominican Republic, where they have revamped one particular abandoned facility, they changed the face of the facory worker's treatment. The Dominican Republic has high rates of poverty as well as several sweatshops but Alta Gracia establishes better working conditions and provides a living wage (which is estimated over three times that of minimum wage in there) for all their workers.

    Here is a heart-warming video of some workers receiving their first paychecks:

    Xavier's mission of "Men and Women for others" has some strong ties to maintaining human dignity. The ALL FOR ONE SHOP sells  Alta Gracia apparel with both men and women selections! Consider checking it out at the ALL FOR ONE SHOP in ustation!? Also to see what else Alta Gracia up to, check this out:
