Skip ordinary socks this Christmas. These fair trade, organic cotton blend socks help change lives. Our friends at Conscious Step partner with non-profit organizations to fight poverty and support humanitarian causes around the world.

Every pair purchased feeds 10 children nutritious snacks through KTS’ daycare and school programs.
