To promote transparency, they publish an annual report on their social and environmental impact with external verifications to ensure accuracy. Ten percent of the company's proceeds go toward delivering food into the hands of underprivileged children across Argentina, supplying healthy alternatives to over 3,600 children every week. The company's desire to keep giving is growing, with plans to open community gardens, providing employment and nutritional food to communities who need it most.
Its biodynamic cotton has been tested by the QOM Community, one of the largest indigenous groups in Argentina. As a proudly certified B Corporation, Stay True was recognized as "best for the world community" in 2016.
"We are very pleased to be working with a company like Stay True Clothing, supporting their mission of providing the highest quality organic clothing, in an ethical, moral and sustainable fashion," said Dr. Winfried Fuchshofen, FairTSA Executive Director. "Their commitment to healthy living, worker welfare, the community and the environment is a great fit for our business model."
