ORabbit Designs is guided by three principles:
- Revitalize domestic manufacturing - We have sourced several garment options that are made in the USA. In addition, we ourselves are a growing manufacturer.
- Fight the culture of globalization - We never use garments from companies that employ sweatshop labor. We do not use offshore freelancers for art services.
- Minimize environmental impact - We offer organic cotton, bamboo, and hemp clothing options. Furthermore, our in-house mantra is Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.
ORabbit Designs thinks it is vitally important for the future of the United States that we once again become a nation that makes things. For decades, business in the US been growing a culture of outsourcing. Job by job, we've been undermining our economic stability in exchange for a quick boost in profits. This is a tragically short-sighted policy for a number of reasons. For one, we've made ourselves dependant on outside entities for our basic necessitites; even some of our food is imported. For another, we're engaging in a new form of slavery by exploiting the poor living standards of foreign workers. And finally, we're pushing the Earth toward the tipping point by moving our factories to countries with poor environmental regulations. This race to the bottom has got to stop!
