We Support Social Causes!

“The chains of habit are too light to be felt until they are too heavy to be broken.” Bertrand Russell, British mathematician and philosopher.

Doo Dah Apparel is trying its best to be a socially responsible company. We support and promote companies that meet 4 of our 7 socially important behaviors: they use sustainable materials in their products, biodegradable and/or recycled packaging materials, American labor and ingenuity, businesses owned by women, businesses owned by minorities, businesses owned by LGBTQ+, and businesses that contribute to social causes.

Doo Dah Apparel is also interested in becoming a Certified B Corp.  "B Corp Certification is a designation that a business is meeting high standards of verified performance, accountability, and transparency on factors from employee benefits and charitable giving to supply chain practices and input materials.”

Our business participates in the Greenspark program, and we personally contribute to charitable organizations like the Special Olympics,Covenant

House, Children’s Hospital Los Angeles (CHLA), St. Jude, and Heifter International, among others. 

Doo Dah Apparel believes in the old Greek maxim that to know the good is to do the good, and the only way to know the good is through education.  The success of every socially and environmentally responsible society begins by showing people how to do the right thing. At Doo Dah Apparel, we will try to do the right thing while having a little capitalistic fun along the way.

We recommend reading rather than watching the news.  The newspaper is like a living text book. Reading a newspaper enables a person to more intelligently breeze through the news that interests them, while stations broadcasting the news will tell you what they think you should know, much of which is sensational in nature to keep you tuned in.  

Major publications like the Los Angeles Times, The New York Times, and the Washington Post are good sources of information to help you educate yourself on local, state and world affairs and how they affect your life.  They all offer affordable digital subscriptions, including delivery if you like the feel of the paper in your hands while you’re drinking a hot coffee or tea.   

If you’re short on time, Doo Dah Apparel recommends subscribing to the free daily newsletter 1440. The printing press was invented around the year 1440, and there are 1440 minutes in a day.  1440 sends out an email every morning with a brief single page synopsis of virtually every important event mentionable over the last day or so.  It’s thorough, concise, and easy to read.  

Most importantly, Doo Dah Apparel will always be a glass is half full company.  That means we will always look on the bright side of life with a smile on our faces and a wink in our eyes. Because so much of the news available to us is of a tragic nature, like the war in Ukraine and the near daily shootings in America which many legislators in Congress unconscionably choose to turn a blind eye to while using the Second Amendment as a scapegoat to fund their reelection campaigns, we believe it’s important, if not essential, to learn about all the good things that are happening around us that often go unnoticed.  Why? Because a charitable nature is a humble, un-promoting nature.  Nice News realizes that, so they’ve taken it upon themselves to write a brief daily newsletter that shines a light on the meritable endeavors of good people.  You can subscribe to it at nicenews.com, and we hope you do.  

Greenspark program

Our business participates in the Greenspark program. Greenspark fights extreme poverty through tree planting; transforming plastic waste into empowering income; helping rural families switch to safer, cleaner, more efficient cookstoves; including other socially and environmentally supported projects.



EcoEnclose

We will be using EcoEnclose as our primary source of shipping materials. EcoEnclose is manufactured in the United States with sustainable solutions in mind from the warehouse to our customers. EcoEnclose believes in a future where people and the earth thrive together through the creation of a circular and regenerative economy where goods are endlessly recycled and reused. At Doo Dah Apparel, we couldn’t agree more.



AI Intolerant

We’re AI Intolerant insofar as artificial intelligence eliminates jobs, shrinks the middle class, and makes it more difficult for an earner to provide for his or her family. People first. People matter.

CONSCIOUS STEP

Conscious Step is one of the few brands we carry that isn’t at least partially made in the United States. We’re making an exception for them because, quite frankly, they’re one of the most socially responsible companies around. We love what they do!

Conscious Step is AAPI (Asian American and Pacific Islander) owned. They’ve put together a small group of artists focused on connecting people with world-changing nonprofits. The company believes everyone can make an impact, regardless of the size of their contribution. So far, they’ve raised over $1,121,917 in donations for their nonprofit partners, including Oceana, Oxfam, Malaria No More, NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness), the National Urban League, Water.org, The Trevor Project, and many more life changing organizations. Their efforts have purchased 88,981 books for kids, planted 644,386 trees while protecting another 1,517,179, changed the lives of 7,710 people by providing them with clean drinking water, and funded 170,664 meals for hungry families.

In a nutshell, Conscious Step makes sox for causes. Their sox are made out of organic cotton sourced and sewn in India. They’re non-GMO, and they’re pesticide and insecticide free. Fair and transparent working conditions, minimum wage compliance, overtime, and no child labor are essential to the work they do. They use packaging made out of recycled materials and hemp string.

We can’t wait to start selling these cozy sox!

4ocean

4ocean is an ocean cleanup company dedicated to ending the ocean plastic crisis. As a Public Benefit Corporation and Certified B Corp. they harness the power of business to fund a global cleanup operation that's responsible for recovering millions of pounds of plastic and other debris from the world's oceans, rivers, and coastlines.

All of their captains and crews are full-time employees who live in the communities they serve. The jobs they create help counteract the economic impacts of plastic pollution, Incentivize environmental stewardship at the local level, and bring new opportunities for growth, equality, education, and prosperity to people whose livelihoods and quality of life are disproportionately impacted by plastic pollution.

They understand that cleanups alone are not enough to achieve our mission, which is why they also work hard to educate the global community about plastic pollution, empower people to end their reliance on single-use plastic, and advocate for government incentives, business innovation, and cross functional partnerships that support the creation and growth of a sustainable circular economy.

Together, we can end the ocean plastic crisis and build a more sustainable future where humanity grows alongside nature and not at its expense.
