How Pen+Pillar shares the guud
"Pen+Pillar gives 10% of all proceeds to help local refugees get settled into their new lives, as well as partner with local refugee artisans. Pen+Pillar holds firmly to the belief that everyone deserves to feel safe, and should be afforded the opportunity to succeed. Art has an amazing power of influence, so they believe it should be used boldly and as a force for good, and encourages a community that believes the same. "
We've been told that business isn't personal, and we couldn't disagree more. Our products would not be in your hands without the hard work of real people and it doesn't get more personal than that. Because of this, we commit to: 1. Complete transparency in our supply chain. We do not work with companies that we cannot personally visit to vet for ethical treatment of their employees, and we commit to work with other small businesses to produce our goods wherever possible. 2. This Earth is our home to care for and love, and our products should be kind to it. We only use FSC Certified© or Cotton paper, and always will. 3. Our full support of our refugee community. We are so fortunate to live in a city where 10% of our population is refugee. Which means we have over 10,000 refugees inside our city limits. We commit to championing them, telling their stories, employing them, and dignifying them through supporting their needs and dreams.
