MAKO CONSULTANTS, INC. SHARES AN ETHICAL FASHION FIND
Many of us at Mako Consultants, Inc. remember the factory in Bangladesh that collapsed back in 2013, which drew attention to the awful work settings under which many people labor. It also pointed out the gap between what we in the West pay for goods, and the benefit that workers receive.
Scott Gabrielson decided to learn from this tragedy, and is changing the way products are both produced and brought to market. His company, Oliver Cabell, makes designer accessories with a factory that is faithful to values like transparency and safe worksites.
To deal with the absurd markup that often goes with designer fashion, Gabrielson is using a hot trend – online sales. With this venue, his company can sell high-quality goods at low prices, while keeping the profit margin necessary to treat his employees fairly.
Gabrielson is about making money, but he’s trying to start a movement as well – one that Mako Consultants, Inc.’s team is happy to support. He said, “The longer-term goal is to have this methodology become the norm for what consumers expect out of brands.” This is an idea that deserves attention. Goods and services don’t have to come at the expense of the people who produce them.
The Mako Consultants, Inc. crew admires Gabrielson’s pledge to moral business methods. Visit our website at http://makoconsultants.com/about/ to learn about the values by which we work.
