Changing Lives Through Business: What Does It Mean To Be A Conscious Business?

by | Apr 17, 2018

We are conscious gift company that uses business to benefit our community and our world. We do this through long-term employment partnered with life and career development for survivors of human trafficking partnering with other conscious businesses and always striving to do the right thing.

We know that EVERY item that is purchased makes an impact on the world. Your purchasing actions can have a positive or negative influence. You have the power to choose.

At Rethreaded, we make this choice by ensuring each company we partner with and each item we make meets at least one or more of these five criteria:


When materials are upcycled they are repurposed and turned into something beautiful instead of taking up space in a landfill. At Rethreaded, many of our items are made from materials like t-shirts, saris and retired airline leather seat covers donated by Southwest Airlines. When you rock our Grace Scarf or write your hopes and dreams in a Sari Notebook, you are supporting a culture that values the world we live in and are decreasing waste.


Fair Trade

When you buy Fair Trade you are ensuring that the item you purchased is made and sold with respect to a person’s working conditions, wage, economy and the environment. Item’s like our Rwandan Survivor-Made Coffee and Kuni Utensil Set prove that there can be greater justice in this world and that valuing people first isn’t out of reach in any system.



Products made by survivors create economic empowerment through employment. We believe that employment is the key to breaking the cycle. It’s why our business model relies on selling items like Threads for Hope Bracelet which fund our six-month Holistic Apprenticeship for new hires. It is why we import from companies all over and sell items like Lavender Candles made by survivors in Nashville, Tennessee who are finding new life through employment at a company called Thistle Farms.



Supporting local businesses isn’t just good for the local economy it also enhances the local community and character. Rethreaded wouldn’t be what it is today without the community’s involvement. That’s why we make a conscious effort to give backWhenever possible we source raw materials from other local companies like Social Grounds Coffee and Amelia’s Toffee. We believe these partnerships add incredible value to our brand and community. We have also saved taxpayers nearly $600k by decreasing recidivism over the last six years. We have watched the immeasurable good of families reunited and are investing in and offering women healing and careers with the Survivor Development Program



Sustainably made goods are created by using materials that provide environmental, social and economic benefits. Every item we make in the Rethreaded Freedom Market provides all these things whether it’s the Eternity Bracelet or Leather Joy Earrings, we strive to make an impact with every item we make and use. As a company, we use upcycled t-shirt towels for cleaning and to dry our hands with instead of disposable towels. We also use environmentally-friendly cleaning products in our warehouse. We want to not only impact the lives of the women we serve and the community, but also the environment we live in. 


Each decision to make a purchase is important, too important to make without making a conscious choice.
