THE FOUNDING STORY
100% PROFITS DONATED
We donate 100% of the profits made from each sale to help build prosthetic limbs in low-income and war-torn countries. We partner with local charities and NGOs already on the ground in each country who are building and delivering rehabilitation and care to amputees in local cities and in rural towns.
Our socks are made under the banner of Ethical Clothing Australia. This means that the materials were grown and collected via Fair Trade methods. The full supply chain of workers are paid fairly and work under safe and ethical methods.
We are also:
- A registered Charity
- A registered Social Trader
- 100% Australian Owned
- Following 6 key Sustainable Development Goals to help improve society
We're working hard to have our business as close to carbon-neutral as possible. Currently, here's how we are reducing our carbon footprint:
- Postage mailers are made from compostable materials
- Our labels are made with recycled paper
- Our delivery with Australia Post is carbon-neutral. Read more here
- We post all packages once a week to reduce delivery footprint
WORKING WITH LOCAL ARTISTS
At UPmovement, we love helping. Our whole business was created to help others!
We also are in the business of helping others around us.
In 2020, we began to collaborate with local artists to help grow their reach, and show their amazing work. Below are our artists, and ways in which you can support them
See the artists that we are currently collaborating with here
All of our artists are paid upfront per design that they make for us. This is a form of license that allows UPmovement to use that design on their behalf to make the socks, and to use for any advertising/promotions.
Our artists are also paid a 10% commission per pair of socks sold. This is why our artist socks are more expensive than our original socks - the extra funds are going straight to the artists for their amazing and talented work.
We pay this commission in full upfront when we receive a new order of socks from our manufacturer.
