Avatar Imports’ mission is to design and create fun, fashionable, high quality goods in a manner that is socially, environmentally and economically responsible. At Avatar they believe that giving impoverished people the opportunity to raise their standard of living and learn viable working skills is a first step towards empowerment that can have a positive impact on a community. Therefore, they work with a fair trade factory in Kathmandu, Nepal to manufacture products that are created in a safe, healthy environment, by people who are paid an above average wage. In addition, Avatar Imports joined the fair trade movement and is a past member of the Fair Trade Federation, and they are a certified green business under Santa Cruz’s Green Business Program.
