For National Human Trafficking Awareness Month we wanted to share 9 for-profit businesses fighting human trafficking through their business model.

Some businesses employ SURVIVORS to keep women from being re-trafficked, and some businesses create jobs in at-risk areas to PREVENT women from ever having to consider selling their bodies in the first place. All these brands prioritize sustainability in their manufacturing process so you can rest easy knowing your purchase was made with care for the planet in mind - on top of social impact, and of course, the product being top quality.
