student in school

An initiative to convince individuals, departments and organizations at Princeton University to purchase all of their tee shirts from companies that pay their workers a living wage.

Our Goals

  • Educate the Princeton community about the ethical options that underlie their apparel choices.
  • Motivate individuals to act on their values and their rationality.
  • Inspire people to think of their smallest actions as having the potential to contribute to human welfare.
  • Connect people to organizations and companies that compensate workers with a living wage.

Our Mission

To educate organizations and individuals on the importance of a “living wage” and to connect those who want to start making a difference to organizations that work specifically with living wage contractors by emphasizing the morality and rationality of buying living wage made products.
