About 2/2: Our Vision: We work for a world where all people have enough, where all communities are healthy and safe, and where the bounty of the Earth is preserved for all the generations to come.

What Makes Co-op America Unique:

  • We focus on economic strategies—economic action to solve social and environmental problems;
  • We mobilize people in their economic roles—as consumers, investors, workers, business leaders;
  • We empower people to take personal and collective action;
  • We work on issues of social justice and environmental responsibility. We see these issues as completely linked in the quest for a sustainable world. It’s what we mean when we say “green”;
  • We work to stop abusive practices and to create healthy, just and sustainable practices.

Sweatshops – economic action to end sweatshop and forced child labor: Sweatshops and child labor are a growing problem, particularly in clothing and textiles. And many popular agricultural products, from coffee to bananas to cut flowers, are grown under terrible conditions. No one wants to buy products made with sweatshop labor, but it is hard to know what to avoid, and where to find green and Fair Trade products. Co-op America provides the information you need to help stop sweatshop labor and promote fair treatment of workers everywhere.
