Despite the company has to earn money to stay «alive», they got a business policy with an unselfish wish to help people. Countries and borders are no limit. I will try to ecplain it.

Darn Good Yarn and people
Darn Good Yarn supports victims of domestic violence and they are also empowering women’s economi. They support fair trades and eco friendly production, so recycling products and materials is an important part of this policy.
It is all about the keywords like integrity, respect and love to people. I would like to see more of this mentality among employers. Darn Good Yarn focus on love and that each and everyone of us are worth something.
What is Darn Good Yarn’s goals and values?
The company creates jobs so that disadvantaged people can provide for their own food, education for their children and healthcare for their families.
This is as we all know, very important for the integrity, self respect and self-esteem. In worst cases the children may have to contribute to the economi, instead of having an education.
They may have to start begging or selling their bodies, and I guess that is not much of a life. It is all about quality of life.
The firm is, as I mentioned before, supporting eco-friendly, sustainable and fair jobs around the world, and they are cooperating with producers and organizations with similar goals. They try to find solutions so that the employees can offer safer and better working environments.
An example of unsafe working environment
I was curious about milk cotton once. There was some big problems with the production method. They used acrylic, formaldehyde and aluminum salts. We don’t have to be chemist to understand how harmful these substances are for the workers , environment and the consumers. As an peri operative nurse I have worked a lot with formaldehyde. We use it to fixate organs and there are very strict rules how to handle and store it.
Darn Good Yarn is having an ongoing campaign to help victims of domestic violence. For each purchased skirt they give one skirt to a victim.
These skirt are made in India of old saris which they recycle. They are really fantastic.
