Zady

https://www.zady.com

At our roots, we are a collaboration between friends. Zady provides an alternative to today's "fast-fashion," a fad demanding consumers buy more and more instead of buying 'good.' We should not be compelled to accept throwaway goods as a way of life; we can instead take pride in the style and integrity of each and every piece we own.

Our mission is to help people improve their quality of life by offering information and products for sustainable living.
A higher quality of life, in our minds, means more time with family and friends, a lower cost of living, a toxin-free home and yard, access to wholesome food and safe drinking water, and more time spent in nature.

Krochet Kids intl. has continued to grow and evolve in ways we never imagined since we earned our non-profit status in January 2008.  Today, over 150 people in Uganda and Peru are working, receiving education, and being mentored toward a brighter future.  The products created abroad have been well received here at home and the collaboration of our staff and beneficiaries around the globe has created a sustainable cycle of employment and empowerment. The beneficiaries of our program are all women. This is due to their unique role as mothers and heads of households. By giving this group of ladies a stable income they are able to provide for many others beyond themselves.
