Fruit of the Loom ™
Fruit of the Loom are committed to transparency, responsible chemical use, and the sourcing of sustainably produced key raw materials that will reduce our environmental footprint.
“We rely on nature to provide us with the raw materials that make our products possible — whether that’s cotton for fabric or rubber for basketballs. We rely on water in our manufacturing processes to dye fabrics into vibrant colors that brighten your day. And we rely on energy to turn yarn into fabric that becomes the essential goods that enrich the lives of our customers. With dependence comes responsibility to use these resources wisely. We take steps every day to achieve our goals: to do more with less, increase our energy and water efficiency, zero out our waste and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.”
Drop in the Ocean
The purpose of A Drop in the Ocean is to provide support for displaced persons and inform the public about their situation. We do not receive any public funding and are therefore dependent on private support and donations to help as many people as possible. When supporting A Drop in the Ocean, you can be sure that your contribution will reach the ones who need it the most. Your donation will make the everyday life of those forced to flee, escaping war and persecution, a little bit better.
A Drop in the Ocean works inside and outside refugee camps by distributing food, clothes, and necessary items. Additionally, we organise various recreational – and learning activities for adults and children. We work closely with the people who need our support, to make sure that we contribute where it is most needed. Your contribution makes a difference!
How is the money spent?
Our work is primarily based on volunteer non-paid work, and our donations are mainly spent on immediate and direct support. To support local businesses, we strive to make local purchases and distribute necessary items such as clothes, food, and hygiene items. In several of our locations we have so called Drop Shops for dignified distributions of clothes. We facilitate valuable activities, such as language training and other forms of non-formal education, activities for children, sports, spaces for mothers and babies, and other forms of psychosocial work.
