To wish happiness to others is beneficial. However, material support is required, in order to alleviate poverty. MAY YOU BE HAPPY wishes to provide financial assistance as much as possible. The business objective is to spread large parts of profits to the needy.
Bio & Fair – Eco Fashion – Made in Germany
The shirts are predominantly of high quality cotton from controlled biological cultivation, produced predominantly in Germany and also in Szczecin/Poland and Holland. We strive to work with producers who are certified with the seal of Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), a particularly rigorous and extensive testing method. We have decided to produce MAY YOU BE HAPPY as far as possible in Germany or nearby. Not only the sustainable production of organic cotton is environmentally friendly but also short transport distances.
It is much cheaper to produce in Asia. Customers are pleased with decent quality at a bargain price. But hundreds of thousands of people pay extra: such as the seamstresses who work in Bangladesh or China on low wages, often under miserable working conditions.
There are now many initiatives and projects, which fight in the countries of the so-called Third World for human production conditions, legal and social standards and fair trade. We welcome this outstanding effort! Our decision to Made in Germany is not directed against other production locations. It is a decision for this: to participate, to obtain the few remaining jobs in the textile industry in Germany or Poland. We want to create a network of partners with whom we work long and trusting.
The production costs for a shirt from MAY YOU BE HAPPY are high, so we can not be cheap. We do not want to either. We want to be fair – to our suppliers and employees, and especially to our customers. We promise: Our shirts are of very fine quality and our prices are calculated fair!
